Whats the delivery cost on overclockers like then? This RAM seems like amazing stuff for the price. It was double this price a few months back.
#2
City Link Next Day is £5.25 +VAT, total £64.91.

Still seems pretty darned reasonable.
#3
Hot price. Geil must be dumping a load of memory onto the market at the moment as the prices for thier stuff on OC UK and Microdirect is very low compared to other brands.
#4
DRAM prices keep plummeting. And so do memory prices as a consequence. It just highlights how overpriced memory used to be.
#5
Totally agree with some the comments here! Few months ago these were couple of hundred quid and now they're down to £64 inc delivery.

Bought some last week - JUST last week and I paid £74. Should saturate soon.... maybe I can have 4gigs in my PC, not that I'm running a 64bit machine or makes a difference - worth the thought :)

apparently overclockers next day delivery is never next day...and they're run by a racist.

LOL, that's a brave thing to say on a public forum!

I reckon DDRII is being sold off with the imminent release of DDR3.
The 1st ddr3 compatible motherbord is allready on the market (gigabyte I think)
#9
The recent price crash in DDR2 is to do with an oversupply of DRAM chips across the market which in itself is a result of a shortage last year.

Tough game predicting supply obviously. I don't think there's ever been a better time to upgrade than now.

He does have a point though, Mark Proudfoot (the owner of OcUK who this guy is refering to) does have a reputation for homophobic and racist comments on his company's forums.

DDR3 has nothing to do with it; it's going to be a niche product until prices come down and the technology has matured.

I received my Dell yesterday (E520 deal) and it has 6700mhz ram (was meant to have 533mhz). Could anyone tell me if this ram will run at 667, or will it be restricted to 533 by the motherboard/bios.

I would like this ram but don't know whether it is compatible.

Any advice is appreciated, Ed

If I recall correctly, Dell supply 533mhz ram with those models even though the mobo can support 667mhz. I believe the Geil ram will work in you rig albeit at lower speeds.

Excellent price by the way.
I paid £88 only a month ago!

I've just ordered another 2gb.
As of monday I will have 4gb in a double dual-channel arrangement.
Its niiiiiice.....

I'm not slagging this product - just a gentle note of caution:

I had compatibility problems with this ram on my Gigabyte DS4 when I purchased some from OCUK last September. They had a large thread on their forum with people with similar problems.
The ram is marked and sold as PC6400 but, and I'm assuming this is one in the same, has it's SPD set to PC5300.
Therefore I had to set it manually to PC6400 and it was not capable of running at it's stated speed of 4-4-4-12 at PC6400.

I sent it back and got some Corsair which worked out of the box (It's SPD is set to PC6400!). I believed at the time that Geil had rebadged some of it's cheaper high quality PC5300 and sold it as PC6400.....

Still, for £58.74 you really can't go wrong eh?

Perhaps it was simply ticketed incorrectly.
My Geil Ultra ram worked exactly as it should.

This runs at up to 2.3V and most motherboards don't provide that much juice so keep that in mind. I'm not sure how many volts it needs to run at its headline speed and timings though!
#18
Are you sure you need 2.3V for it to operate at 800MHz/CAS 4-4-4-12? I would have thought that's what the bottom end of the range (1.9V) is for but it can take 2.3V if you want to overclock it.
#19
I've now got my second pair of these...
Does Windos XP have a limit to how much ram it will recognise?
On the first instance it showed only 3.25gb...
