Most people who are into overclocking DDR2 RAM, are hungry for D9 Micron RAM.
#2
It's not a bad price for RAM that isn't ValueRam or somesuch, and it's rated for 800mhz, which is whats needed for the new Core2Duo processors that many people may be wanting to upgrade into. It should overclock some, but if you know what that is about you don't need me telling you folks. It will take your new Vista laden machine to the heady heights of whatever memory you have +2GB for machines with 2 empty memory slots though, and for those without Vista 'blessing' your systems, then you can upgrade as well - but don't go over 3GB or you will see a drop in performance and not all of the memory will be recognized.

I run these modules in my PC. tbh they are great ram - I've some decent overclocks.

Just to confirm what robovski said - those running XP (should be everyone while they work out the bugs) will find that 2gb should be the theoretical ceiling in RAM, due to the fact that 32-bit operating systems have trouble comprehending 2.5gb+ RAM. For those on a 64-bit OS (Vista, XP 64-bit, various Linux Distros), the theoretical ceiling is over 1000GB RAM, so no worry there!

Dont forget, RAM works best in dual channel mode! This basically means you put it in the 1st and 3rd slots on your motherboard.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dual_channel

Dual-channel architecture DDR/DDR2 SDRAM describes a motherboard technology that effectively doubles data throughput from RAM to the memory controller. Dual channel-enabled memory controllers utilize two 64-bit data channels, resulting in a total bandwidth of 128-bits, to move data from RAM to the CPU.

In order to achieve this, the DDR/DDR2 SDRAM memory modules must be installed into matching banks, which are usually color coded on the motherboard.


Basically, slots 1+2 use one pathway, and slots 3+4 use another. If the RAM is in slots 1+2, both sticks will be trying to use the same pathway, while the other pathway is empty. With the sticks in 1+3, each have their own pathway, effectively doubling throughput and increasing performance in high RAM usage situations (typical example - while running Aero in Vista, or gaming in any OS).

Thanks. I bought some. My machine operates at 533 currently so this gives me headroom for OCing. Or I can run at 533 and reduce the timings (I think).

Excellent!

Cheers,

The daft thing is Vista has all sorts of speed up tricks that us all the ram you can get, yet as above 4gb is wasted on a 32bit system.

Anyone know if 2x512 along with 2x1gb causes any performance probs? (assuming the motherboard can dualchannel that setup).
#6
Dude for 800mhz ram that is a great price. You got my vote. ;)
#7
Great deal. Can anyone help me with this?:

My pc has 512 Mg of 133mhz PC133 DIMM which Im looking to upgrade. Both slots are used up so I need to find a stick of 512MG or more. I cant find any anywhere. Any suggestions? Any help would be muchly appreciated!

Fantastic price for quality ram - voted hot!

bargain price

Question

i am running 2x1gb corsair 6400 in dual channel mode, if i buy these then this will push my system upto 4gb, now would i loose dual channel mode, or would the original corsair still run in dual channel and the new 2gb sticks run in single channel, or will they also be dual channel as they are matching pair?

can anyone clear that up for me please

thanks

Depends on your motherboard but normally these would be dual channel also

a techy on another thread has advised that you will only benefit from plus 2gb ram if you are running a 64 bit version of windows...so that's probably a consideration for your purchase.

yep i know that, but i appreciate the heads up

:thumbsup:

Re mixing this and corsair - mixing ram can cause compatibility issues, but most of the time will run fine in dual channel. I recommend anyone looking to get a 2gb kit does so pronto, RAM prices fluctuate like crazy - these kits were £160+ only a week ago.
#16
Thanks for this, voted hot when posted, actually ordered today as I built new system ;)
#17
Due to Vista the ddr2 ram prices goes cheaper. As more ddr2 in demand.

Depends on your motherboard.....always check your motherboard manual to find out which slots to use. (It's usually colour coded anyways)

Only partially true. Not all of the 4Gb will be capable of use under Vista or XP but some will be. See the following article for more information:

http://www.vistaclues.com/reader-question-maximum-memory-in-32-bit-windows-vista/

In summary, if you are running a 32 bit OS you should probably not install more than 3Gb of RAM because anything over that will be largely wasted (assuming you have a 512Mb graphics card and other peripherals). If you do install 4Gb, you won't be able to use it all but you will be able to use the maximum available (probably between 3Gb and 3.5Gb).

Thanks for the correction..as I said I was only quoting from another thread.

LOL. That isn't the case at all. If demand is high prices increase and will remain high unless supply is also increased. I believe memory is being reduced recently because manufacturers have been expecting big demand with vista requiring so much memory, but they over predicted the demand. Probably because it is a known fact that most people are not currently prepared to switch from xp because of the cost and to the average user they will not benefit from the switch.

Take a look at some supply and demand analysis; this will give you a bit more of an idea but I think it is obvious really

It's more likely that the RAM companies have been scrutinised for their ram pricing of late rather than supply & demand. They've been sued for cartel style price fixing several times in the past.

I agree, apart from the odd exception they all seem to be around the same price. Especially for premium brands such as OCZ, Corsair, G Skill etc etc

Can see no evidence to suggest they are drpping.
#24
Just looked on Overclockers this morning, and the price (for today) has dropped to £97.99, £115.14 inc VAT

Prices are fluctuating every day. They were above 100 ex VAT just yesterday.
#25
RAM prices seem to shift more than CPU prices.

This is a very good price, I'd be very surprised if it falls below £100 before April.

Next major shift will be when DDR3 starts appearing on new motherboards and DDR3 sticks start shifting in mass quantities.
