Bh-5 Or Samsung?


Recommended Posts

I'm currently bidding on some BH-5 on Ebay.... but then I got to wondering, which is better? BH-5 or the new Samsung chip that comes with the Corsair PC3200XLPro?

 

Also, on AMD setups (Mobile 2600+), what would it be best to run the divider at?

Well, I'm trying to hit the higher FSB's with the absolute tighest timings, so would the BH-5 be the RAM for the job? I'm going to be running it on a DFI NFII Infinity with a 2600+ Mobile, and I'm hoping I can hit 2.5GHz - 2.6Ghz while keeping the tightest timings I can.

Alright, thanks!

 

Also, would I have any bottlenecks in this system?

2600+ Mobile @ 2.5Ghz+ (I'm hoping)

DFI NFII Infinity

Mushkin (2x512) PC3200-PC3500 Level II (BH-5)

Sapphire Radeon 9800 Pro OC'ed (420/700 or so I'm hoping)

Antec Purepower 420w PSU

Seagate Barracuda 120GB ATA/100 (upgrading to dual Raptors in RAID 0 later)

 

I'm hoping to run FarCry and UT2K4 with maxed settings. I know I probably won't be able to get FarCry maxed, but I'm hoping to get above-average on the settings with flawless gameplay. Would I have any bottlenecks with this system?

well if u want to hit that speed with that proc you'll need more power. a 480w psu or more would probably do the job. i have a 420w and a mobile 2000+ and the voltage is lower than its set at because it isnt powerful enough foir the overclock i have.
