I really am shocked at that nagasama...I want to know what volts you are running becuase those speeds rival my G.skill NR's..even though they are like 50 bucks cheaper still they will do about the exact speeds with 2.15v

You must have gotten some good chips man heh but congrats. That's really nice.

Not all XMS2 is bad but they don't BIN them like G.skill does to ensure all of the chips will OC high. You got good luck :P

duly noted..

i understand exactly what your saying, and hopefully more people will start to realize this. people do tend to get pretty sided with one company and thats it. but thats why this forum exist, for those more knowledgeable to give advice.

p.s. this is in reference to Sora's post earlier

On average those are 4 brands I always see come up becuase they USED to be some of the best no matter what. Now there are better for the money...if they understand that they are paying more for slower then go ahead. Yea I'm not bashing you for buying MXS2 before as G.skill used to be very expensive until they cut their prices and now they blow everyone out of the water.

i have no idea why that post just showed up? (the "duly noted.." post) i think my firefox just freaked out and posted it, i meant to post it a while ago lol...
.
lol, uhh yeah but she doesn't play games or anything, just basic office and browsing, but yeah they do deserve the best..i didn't even realize it then but the 3600+ and the mobo were in a combo a few days ago and i was like well the mobo has some good reivews, guess i'll get it. even though now im a little ticked that the 3600+ OEM is $65 and has a free copy of Rainbow Six: Vegas... :-/

oh really dude you got the combo with a 3600 and this mobo?
that rocks... now the combo is a 5600 for like 259.00.
which is pretty sweet too.
but my whole point here is to get a 65 DOLLAR cpu that performs as well as a 300 dollar (or more) chip.
we'll see if the hype is worth it i guess.

yeah its not too shabby paired together, she probably won't let me touch her comp anymore though lol. however, im a little tempted to try to see what it'll do...

i hear you, the 5600+ is nice, but the point is to try to get a $150 set-up to match up with a $400-500 set-up.
