Default Re: Which ram sticks?

what about the supertalent ram sticks? theyre made by a US company, most of their models have decent timings and theyre cheap!. plus, ive read in a review somewhere (toms hardware maybe) that memory timings dont matter much when it comes to real life performance. not sure on the overclockability of the super talent ram though.

Get the Crucial Ballistix. I didn't, and I was sorry... now I have them and not only am I very happy, but my sex life has never been better.


On a side note. Whats the difference between the Crucial Ballistix and the Crucial Ballistix Tracers ? Since they are the same price.

the tracers have led lights on them indicating the amount of load they have.

I was wondering which is better:

ocz: Newegg.com - OCZ Gold 4GB(2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

or a-data: Newegg.com - A-DATA 4GB(2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail


exact same everything, so just wondering about the "special" ocz heat spreaders and which brand is more reliable.
