Default Overclocking Ram

ok im a noob with overclocking, including ram for it. i was wondering what a good cheap overclocking ram would be cause im on a budget. i need a good dual channel 1gig for overclocking for about 100-120$ even 130 if i have to go there.

Your best bet for that price range would probably be BH-5s...you'll find those in chips like Mushkin Redlines and I think OCZ VX series but you might wanna double check that as I haven't really followed BH-5s after Twinmos discontinued them

Should be noted that you'll need active cooling for them and you're gonna have to be willing to bump up your vdimm quite substancially as well as your vcore to compensate

For a bit more I think OCZ Rev2s go for about $150 or so and they are once again using TCCD chips on brainpower PCBs...I'll confirm this once I get my RMA back

Overclocking ->

That's how you get "DDR" speed. Multiply the Mhz by 2 :amazed:
