Best Oc Ram


Recommended Posts

Well, the title explains it all. I am definitely going to OC even though while using this Kingston I noticed you can OC with bad ram. :P

 

I need 2 x 512 MB sticks that run in dual channel.

Edit: Forget the edit I had before lol.

No budget.

from experience, you cannot say "this is the best 2x512mb ocing sticks of ram", because finding great ocing ram is kind of hard, and finding it in 2x512 is even harder. So I honestly cant give you an answer besides finding some tccd, which may or may not oc that great.

notcing that you have a dfi board, you might even may wanna look into some bh-5 chips

 

Bh-5 normally hits around ~260 fsb, at 2-2-2-5 at ~3.5v <=== pwnage

He sent me here: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=67762

 

So I am thinking about it and am probably gonna get 2x1GB Crucial Ballistix Z503. It's just about $270 (yea I know :() but the OCs on it seem amazing and it is just good ram for gaming (2 GB seems like the new gaming amount so...).

 

Edit: I just found the RAM on NewEgg and, well, everyone is RMAing them so I think I might be looking for new ram again......

Just keep in mind, on my LAN rig, 2GB of ram gives me close to zero extra performance, on the main rig it DOES (but not a "huge" boost) so if OCing is your main goal, then a set of really good 512 sticks would be better and with your current setup just fine.

 

I personally liek my 2-3-2-5 G.Skill PC3200 @ ~240mhz 2.5-3-3-7 2.7V with more room to bump it up at thoes settigns (which reminds me it's tiem to go play with this thing again, sittign @ 2.62ghz on the main rig is killing me (and i have soem time to play with the ram now unlike when i got it) humm might it get it back to my loved 2.8ghz tonight...prob not with my new focus on OCing some good ram + the CPU so yeah anyway.

Thanks for the heads up. I am probably gonna stick with my original 2 x 512 MB. Now time to go find the best of those....

 

 

I have now found this ram, which seems to be the best for what I am looking for:

Here is just a nice list of G. Skill ram that I found this one in:

This is another G. Skill ram that looks like best bang for the buck:

I've got some bh5 in my server rig, and it tops out @ 250 2-2-2-5, then wont go past 260 no matter what timings. Its good, but nothing compared to the 330mhz @ 2.5-4-4-7 on my g.skill 4400LE.. I havent looked around at ram for a while, but I see that g.skill has taken away their guareneteed 4400 speeds and are now just advertising 3200. If anything, I'd be grabbing the g.skill just bc I've had a great experience with the ram so far.
