Default Re: RAM Choice for OC

out of those 2 options, the clear winner there is the PC2-8500... the price difference isn't that great, and they're stock at 1066, which means you know you're gonna get at least that, but there's no certainties with the PC2-6400s... although you will get a great OC out of the Reaper series... they're trusted DIMMs and OCZ products are almost always top quality... but as people have said above, the P45 chipset will be a better OCing platform, the high end nForce chipsets (690i, 790i/Ultra) are great, but every other one is mainly just to sell licenses for SLI boards and will not perform as well as a P45 or X48 based board


NZXT Lexa BlackLine w/ Red LEDs | Corsair TX-750 | Gigabyte EP45-DS3P | Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 @ 3.6GHz
2x 2GB Kingston HyperX PC2-6400 @ 960MHz (5-4-4-13) | 3x Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500GB HDD in RAID5
2x HIS Radeon HD 4850 @ 761/1129 in CrossFireX w/ Thermaltake DuOrbs | Creative X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Pro
