Another good Corsair XMS deal from ebuyer, this stuff is DDR2-800 ideal for high-end AMD X2 and Intel Core2 system, particularly overclockers etc.

Not as fast timings as the CL4 stuff posted elsewhere but a lot cheaper, especially with free super-saver delivery and google-checkout discount.

Ebuyer have a set of OCZ RAM with the same spec for £52.86 delivered which is a better deal. It has a lifetime warranty also:

i got the Corsair CL4 2GB set for £47 a couple of weeks ago, a good price compared to months ago but not worth jumping on.

True, but the difference in performance between 667 MHz CL4 and 800 MHz CL5 is very marginal.

I agree, for the average user there is no difference between 667/800, but if youre overclocking its the difference between a **** OC and a great OC so this is a great deal for anyone whos interested in that(although they should probably go for cl4)

well, was ok deal till that OCZ stuff got reduced to a tenner less than this!

Good deal, but these would seem the better buy (CL4 and better overclockers):

MicroDirect have them a little cheaper when you include postage: microdirect.co.uk/Pro…777
Worth keeping an eye on them as they were only £54 excluding postage a few days ago when I bought some.

i wouldn't be too sure of that

will these do 4-4-4-12 @ 800+ like my set do on low volts?

anyway, there's another thread on here with the ballistix-c3 ...these sticks blow away the corsairs entirely and are cheaper

I wouldn't be too surprised if they could, even though they are rated CL5. The Corsair XMS stuff is generally under-specified. Still, there is better value ram at the moment.
