Corsair Value Select

Recommended Posts

I just bought two sticks of PC3200 512MB Corsair Value Select and the bulid quality is unbelievably low.I seem better on old pirated video game cartridge and of course one of them is defective.It really is not worth the money saved,I would not want to put things of that quality in my PC.I wasn't expecting much yet it's much worst than I can imagine. Stay away.

You get what you pay for. Kingston ValueRAM has been proven to be pretty solid in my work builds.

see, cos i'm cheap, i use non-branded ram (serious overclocking doesn't bother me) and i have never had a faulty stick in my entire life! the build quality has always been pretty good too.

sorry to hear that the ram was of inferior quality - i hope you sent it back!

You want real garbage RAM, try Azen. We have the three A's at work. Asus+AMD+Azen RAM. A mixture for disaster. Edited by FxXP

I have Corsair PC3200 Value Select ram and it out perform's my Kingston HyperX PC4000 ram. IMO the best value ram you can buy is Samsung ram. That is what I put in all my budget systems.

I have the Value Select 3200 512MB, too. I can't tell if it's good or not because I can only get good overclocks when I lower the ratio to 11 from 9.

With a 1:9 ratio I can get it up to 234MHz. Which is nice and all... but that only gives me 2115MHZ out of an 1800MHZ Clawhammer. So when I drop the ratio to 1:11 I only get 204.5MHz out of the RAM. I can get more, but it won't be stable enough to fold.

Anyway... The reason that I can't tell if it's good or not is because it can do 234MHz just fine @ 1:9... but it can't stay stable above 204.5MHz at 1:11... Might be that I have a lousy Claw.

Hope that makes sense...

during my oc attempts on this 2500+ i changed the fsb:ram divider to see what the ram was capable of... for some reason i couldn't change the CL to anything apart from 2.5 (wouldn't even boot at 2 or 3, weird) and the max oc i could get was about 216 MHz... slightly below the 10% i'm used to for budget ram...

i run 1:1 tho so it's at 192 (slightly below stock with tighter timings) and while not oc'd, it still is reliable i guess...
