My motherboard manual states

2x 184 pin 2.5v ddr sdram
ddr400 unbuffered

Will it run these sticks or are they too fast for it?

It's not that they're too fast for your motherboard, it's that these sticks are of a different standard, DDR2 rather than DDR.

No matter, though - you can pick up 1GB sticks of DDR400 RAM for around £20 these days.

yeah just noticed that. Any idea where I can pick up ddr pc4000? Ebuyer doesn't offer any :(

PC4000? It'll be either marked as DDR 200MHz, DDR400, or PC3200 (actual speed, effective speed, and theoretical bandwidth, respectively), and should be available easily still. Unless you're meaning PC4000 as in the overclockers stuff, in which case, Crucial might still have some, but you'd be lucky to find it, since it was never officially a standard, and the niche market that bought it have since moved on to DDR2.

Listed as pre-order... 'Order usually ships in 14 days'... I think they've had quite a run on this....

Daft question, what is better 4-4-4-15 (OCZ) or 4-4-4-12 (Geil) (as posted a few days back)
#7
I think it's hard to say what is better, I don't think the Geil uses 'micron' chips, so there is nothing extra special about the hardware. I would say from reviews the Geil runs hotter, but at the end of the day it's down to preference. I like the OCZ warranty and attitude. Plus, I have 2gb of this, so thought I'd upgrade to 4 and keep it the same across the board.

Hope that helps somewhat. Daz.

Wow Google checkout let me use my £10 off even though I've used it before :)

ouch, I payed quite a bit more for these a couple of months ago.

I've already got 2GB of these, I might get another two, but I don't think my motherboard can handle 4 of these running at 925MHZ :O
#11
Windows can only see 3gb anywy, unless you are using the 64 bit version

Cheers OP ! Just upgraded my old 1GB PC5300 to 2GB PC6400 ! :thumbsup:
#13
Can you use these in computers that are currently running Kingston - Memory - 2 GB - DIMM 240-pin - DDR II - 533 MHz / PC2-4200?

Thanks
#14
Advice needed! - I have the Vostro 200 MT, currently with 2GB of 667MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM.

Will this memory work on this machine?
and if not at its full speed, will this ram run at a lower rate?

Thanks

Yes it will work as long as you have 2 free ram slots. The ram is backwards compatible so will run at any speed 800MHz or under (in your case 667MHz). All the RAM in your system has to run at the same speed so by default the motherboard will set itself at the speed of the slowest RAM module.

You could try to overclock your original RAM upto 800MHz but i wouldn't recommend it purely due to the fact that the speed increase will not be worth any potential stability problems.

Lower Numbers = Better (but the first one is CAS latency, which is most important), so the Geil is better.

I want some, but i doubt they'll run at DDR1075 like my other DDR800 sticks do! :P

I don't know about £20, but you can get a stick of Kingston for £23.11 from http://www.memorybits.co.uk/shop/computer-upgrade-memory/kingston-value-ram-1gb-dimm-240pin-ddr-ii--400mhz--pc3200-cl3-nonecc-kvr400d2n31g/5477 inc delivery, if that helps.

EDIT: Scratch that, it's DDR2, oops!

Is this memory compatible with my PC?
My computer has DDR2 SDRAM Non -ECC
667 Mhz PC2-5300.
Sorry for asking but what is non-ECC?

Thanks
#20
I paid like £117 from ebuyer back in March 2007!
Cant beleive how much RAM prices have dropped!:pirate:
#21
Luilui, it should be compatible, however depending on your motherboard it may run at a slower speed, if you can check your manual whether your motherboard supports PC2-6400 (800). Great ram if you're not overclocking, and 4Gb of this stuff costs less than a lot of good 2GB DDR2 kits.

I don't believe Geil use Micron chips anymore but use Elpida instead.

I know there are issues with Micron D9's dying at high voltages that they need for top speeds.

This review rates Geil over OCZ

That's wrong - a 32-bit OS can see a max of 4 GB of memory, however PCI stuff comes into this meaning you see between 2.75 and 3.25 GB of RAM.

64-bit lets you use up to 128 GB.
#25
I was thinking of getting a 8800GTX graphics card that has like over 700 mb in a DIY PC build with Windows vista 32 bit. So would i be wasting my time getting 4gb ram and be better off getting only 3 ramm cards of 1gb each? I was gonna get the OCZ Flex XLC PC2-9200 1150mhz memory. Please help cos I'm stuck on this memory ram limit and don't want to waist money on a 4th card that aint getting used anyway. 3 cards better and more sense then?
#26
Three pieces of ram is probably the most cost effective way to go. :)

but then you wont get dual ddr ............. so really 2x1gb and 2x512mb would be faster, but for maximium compatability 4x1gb of the same stuff and just cry about losing the 750mb :-( tbh ram is cheap what is the cost difference between 3gb and 4gb ? and can someone with 4gb memory post a gif of system performance monitor using over 75% of thier memory the majority of the time ;-) i have 4gb and cant say if its ever gone much over 75% load even playing crysis demo , so if you have 64bit you will probably find unless youre doing lots of multitasking or using cad or something like that then you're not going to use the extra memory anyway .......... so is 4gb overkill ? or is it just the fact you can have it so get it and it sounds cool having 4gb which is 4 times the size of my first hard drive i bought :w00t:

Thanks, i'm not 100% sure what I have now, but I went on the crucial website and ran their detection tool and I thought it told me I had PC4000. I Think I should take the stick out and have a look myself. I only put it in 6months ago so you think I could remember! :) Thanks for the reply.

Wouldn't get a 8800GTX at the moment. The 8800GT gives close performance for a lot less. Additionally there are new versions of the 8800GTS coming out which have more processing units than the current models. 1Gb RAM models are also on the way but the manufacturers are waiting for Nvidia to update the drivers.
#30
I would get the 8800gt (if you can, lol). Really good value for money, the new GTS will cost alot when it comes out. Just wait till it goes down in price then buy it.

Ive just brought another 2Gb of this ram, very good ram and overclocks well, just need to wait for 8800gt and will have sweet setup then:

Vista 64bit
Asus P5K motherboard
Q6600 overclocked to 3GHz
4GB OCZ RAM @ 4-4-4-12
320 Gb + 80 Gb hardrive
Samsung sata DVD/RW drive

Just waiting for 8800gt now, dont suppose anyone would want to buy my Sapphire X1950Pro 256MB graphics card? Bout 2 months old, very good card
#31
how much?
#32
dcx_badass
No your better getting 4. It might not use it all but it will pull the overall speed up.
Dual channel is faster, and it only works when running ram in pairs. So get 2 or 4 sticks.


thanks for that dcx_badass. That's what I thought. Will the 4 sticks automatically work in dual channel or do i need to set it up via the bios?

cheers for that blinky and Chidda. thinking same thing. But I want to build a pc capable of playing crysis at very highest settings on a 24in LCD at 1920x1200 Resolution. Otherwise I'd feel what is the point spending all that money. On other hand looks like no graphics card can play crysis at those settings at present on DirectX 10 atleast (from vibes I am getting researching). So maybe best getting a cheaper 8800 GT card for now and waiting for something like the rumoured 9800 nvidia cards to come out. (a 'blast flow' water cooler for a GT card should be not very expensive to get an adaptor for any future cards anyway i guess if upgrade sooner rather than later) Any help appreciated. (sorry to go off topic)
#34
Yer I was hoping to play crysis high as well. I doubt you would be able to run crysis well at tht resolution, looking at reviews from demo ppl are saying that when running dx10 at high settings, can struggle abit, need a beasty pc to run it at that settings. However it would be able to run crysis very well no doubt and 8800gt is a great card atm.

Erm I would sell card for £65 + P&P (special delivery, about £5). Like I said card is under 2 months old, still has warranty, have box and everything, can send pics if u want.

Wont sell it till I get 8800gt first tho, lol still waiting for it :)
#35
From this review

SLI'ed 8800GT generally outpace a 8800GTX so if you can SLI it's the way to go :)

Woah woah woah, don't get ahead of yourselves. The effect of dual channel is pretty much negligible. So much so, that it's not worth worrying about. It is supposed to stop bottlenecks, and improve bandwidth. Don't think it will "pull your overall speed up". I'm putting 4gb in my machine as I know I will move to 64-bit at some point, and at this price I can't complain.

However, I wouldn't get the extra stick of ram if you don't need the extra *potential* 256mb. I wouldn't even consider it.

That is why I said it's most cost-effective to get 3 sticks. You will see much much bigger benefits from effectively overclocking this ram.

Hope that helps, Daz.

thats the problem with asking technical advice on a bargain forum you get conflicting views , this may have been correct 2 or 3 years ago when applications werent written for dual channel memeory just like the argument for dual and quad core cpus, the software has to be optimised for it and every day it gets better dual channel and multiple cores are the future as is 64 bit get the 4 sticks
now 1 stick is £27.99 + 2.99 deliverybut no google checkout and 2 sticks is £47 inc and £10 off so it costs less than a tenner for the extra stick and you get dual channel so go for the 4 sticks
#38
Just received my OCZ PC2-6400 memory today and one of the sticks seems to be faulty and causes the PC not to boot.

Anyone else had any problems with theirs ?

I thought OCZ memory was supposed to be good stuff ? :-(
#39
Unfortunately you get duds whoever you buy from, arrange for ebuyer to pick the kit up and send you another one.
#40
Or if you prefer, I think you can go through OCZ themselves...

Mine arrived and work seamlessly. Have them at 4-4-4-12.
Now have 4gb, and my slots are filled, can't complain!
