Voted Hot, looks a good price!
#2
definitly hot deal
#3
wow this is a hot deal, paid £50 for mine and its the same spec but the OCZ brand
#4
If you’ve got a pre-built system such as a Dell or HP this will run at 800MHz Cl5 more than likely so you might as well buy some even cheaper RAM. If you have a newer AMD quad core system it might support this speed.
Good price all the same.

Good price but CL4 is better i but good deal yes...good to see DDR2 prices come down must be due to DDR3 sales picking up

Good price but CL4 is better

CL4 at this speed on 2GB DDR2 sticks is just about unheard of; does anyone make such a product? Not saying you can’t hit that point with judicious addition of extra voltage of course. :-D

DDR2 prices have been in the doldrums for so long that the manufacturers are mainly losing money and merging or declaring insolvency. Or are you specifically referring to the price of high end DDR2?

I have never seen 1066Mhz RAM with 4-4-4-12 latencies.
If you have please do tell :)

What do you think is better performance wise?

800Mhz at 4-4-4-12 or
1066Mhz at 5-5-5-18?

I'm not sure it would be worth the upgrade for me personally.
Still a good deal though.
Voted Hot.

Brilliant price.

As others have said CL4 is usually on 800mhz RAM. I don't think I've ever seen stated specs by a manufacturer to be CL4 and 1066mhz.

Whats RAM is that? I bet it can run at CL5 1066mhz. Try it if you have a motherboard which allows you to overclock RAM.

RAM manufacturers tend to use binning to find out which sticks to use for which speeds. But usually CL3 667mhz, CL4 800mhz and CL5 1066mhz can all run at all those settings for enthusiast memory.

My RAM is the Corsair CMT2X1024-6400C4. I have 4 X 1GB sticks.
When I built my PC about 8 months ago I had to decide between 800Mhz RAM and 1066Mhz. 1066Mhz was considerably more expensive.
There is also a CL5 corsair version of my RAM. I specifically chose the CL4 RAM to run it at those latencies with its enhanced performance profile (EPP). The irony is that after months of crashes in one of my games I finally discovered that it was the timings that was causing it to crash. It's the only application with a problem. I really don't know why it crashes (whether it's the game, faulty sticks or defective slots) Since then I've had to set it back to the SPD of 5-5-5-18.
Regarding overclocking I did try overclocking via raising the HyperTransport reference clock. Doing so even by a few Mhz kept giving me freezes so I just kept it at the default of 200Mhz. My RAM has always been at the divider of 4 for 800Mhz. My motherboard does allow you to manually change the divider to 5.33 for 1066Mhz. I have just never actually considered trying it until now. :)
I'll give it a go and see if my machine will POST.

Super price for 1066mhz. I'll try not to get too jealous that my mudderboards wont take such speeds :)

Heat added.
#12
One thing to be careful of when buying this is make sure your motherboard is capable of supplying the 2.2v to run this most ram runs at 1.8v
#13
I was cursing Ebuyer that they are so petty theyre making me wait the full amount of time for my 'super saver delivery' like they usually do, even though everything gets posted next day delivery anyway.

So Ive now cancelled the 4GB I ordered @ £50 for 8GB of this instead. It was different when there was £7 of a difference, but £13 of a difference is a pretty big percentage. 8GB for £74 ... :O

8 gig of this on a quad core with a 1 gig gfx card, I never thought Id see the day, never mind ever be able to afford it, even if it did take a year to put together.

Thanks maddogb.

Sounds like a great system, I'm a long way away from that kind of spec but with sweet deals here popping up, might get there this year.:)

Found this datasheet: http://www.valueram.com/datasheets/KHX8500D2K2_4G.pdf

Trying to work out what it will manage on an Asus P5L-MX, which can only reach 2.0v on memory and DDR 667.

It’s hard to estimate. I have some OCZ DDR2 900MHz CL4 which runs at 1,000MHz CL5 at stock voltage which is 1.8V I think. I’ve never tweaked the voltage in the BIOS so it should be using the standard SPD voltage for DDR2.
Lowering the latency does generally seem to require more voltage so I don’t bother with that as I prefer low power consumption systems.

will this memory work in a DELL STUDIO pc?


"Memory
2048MB 800MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM [2x1024] "

thats the current memory in the system

It should work but only at 800Hz CL5 which is likely the maximum settings that the system supports.
I’d consider buying another couple of 1GB 800MHz sticks provided your system has spare slots and save some money. Ebuyer have OCZ 2x1GB 800MHz for £18.67 + delivery - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/114728
