Yeah, the TCC5's were meant to be a replacement for TCCD and most companies will tell you "Oh dont worry they are exactly the same" but they aren't...if you took 1000 TCCD and 1000 TCC5 the TCCD would have a majority of better OCers

but hell TCC5's would still be better than a corsair valueSelect

I can vouch for that, I'm still pretty pissed off that OCZ started shipping TCC5s without telling anyone. Yeah, Andy and the others at XS insist that they yield the same results as the TCCDs, but they don't.

I squeezed DDR540 out of mine and I'm still getting crashes in fear demo, I'm not pleased especially since the Rev2s are apparently underclocked DDR500 chips

Even worse I paid the TCCD price for these, and shortly afterwards the prices dropped like hell since the TCC5s are cheaper
