why the cold voting?

show me this RAM any cheaper?

more user reviews: overclockers.co.uk/sho…BPQ), also notice the price! (£76.36 inc VAT plus postage!)

Anyone bought from this retailer before?

Yes, this is a very reputable company. Based in Ireland and have been around for at least 4 years... well that's when I first used them anyway :thumbsup:

I don't think so, 5 is typical at this speed of memory

il sooon find out, will update when my order arrives

Decent stuff, but only if your motherboard supports it and if you know how to use this stuff. Otherwise stick to standard 800mhz stuff, or something like OCZ plaitinum at about £50-£60 per 4gb.

Voted hot as it is decent stuff, but as I say, only if you know what your doing.

Stupid question maybe, but if I have an Intel chip running at 1066Mhz FSB, do I need faster memory than this? From what I can tell, this is for 1000Mhz FSB ... is it likely to run ok, or does the 66MHz make a difference?

Thanks!

No mate, the 1066 is what your processor runs at, that is your FSB. Your memory is a different process. I imagine your board will have a memory speed of 800mhz, so that is why I said for anyone else get 800mhz ram, unless of course you know how to overclock the memory bus on your baord to benefit from higher mhz stuff.

hope that helps a little.

congratualtions, you have now won a Blue Peter badge

nice find, but i meant from the above link to OcUK.

plus im not sure if you can get the Geil in a 4Gb flavour? maybe worth a look though, wonder if price is below £100 for it?

Ok, so it appears that pretty much nowhere on earth actually sells the stuff ... the best I could come up with was ]here ... but even they're out of stock.

Maybe you win after all

Microdirect has an OCZ 2x2GB 1,000MHz kit for £67.75 delivered or about £66 after Quidco but the timings are a bit worse: 5-5-5-18.

For this sort of RAM though it’s as much to do with how well it over-clocks and some of the CL5 1,066MHz or higher stuff might well hit CL4 at 1,000MHz.

PC2-5400 = stock ram with no headroom but waste of money as PC2-6400 is literally the same price.
PC2-6400 = RAM for stock systems, and overclockers that want headroom for ATLEAST a 400FSB before overclocking the RAM.
PC2-8000 = RAM for overclockers who want at least 500FSB before even overclocking the ram.

latencies on intel Core2/quad systems makes very little differnce unless your benchmarking and a major PC enthusiast.

CPU's run at 1/4 of thier stated FSB so if you have a core 2 duo E-6550 which is stated to run at 1333 MHZ, in actual fact it runs at 333 MHZ so PC2-6400 RAM provides a 70MHZ or so headroom before the RAM is being used out of its stated frequency.

if there is ram with lower latencies like somebody was complaining earlier 'waste of money and time with those latencies' dont bother spending more to get better latencies as its probly a waste of money.

ill leave it as that. hope this helps.
