Very good price, H&R added.

Fantastic price, got this memory about a year ago for more than double the price.

is it better to have 4 sticks of 1gb or 2 sticks of 2gb in a computer that can hold 4gb with 4 slots?

2 sticks of 2gb.
Then if you ever want to upgrade you can buy another 2 sticks and not have to sell the others as most motherboards don't usually have more than four slots.

This makes it just over £8 per GB and is fully warranted. On eBAY plenty of people pay £10 - £20 just for 1 GB without realising how cheap the interent sellers like scan, ebuyer, .. 30% is what you pay for brand new with 12 months+ warranty and after sales service and a return policy. So in effect £8 per GB is equivalent to £5 per GB on eBAY....daft people paying over the market price for DDR2 memory and risk the risk of ebay scam. eg.
Just bought £17 item from scan, delivery free... item faulty, .. got an RMA right away.. next day Citilink came to pick up faulty item at no extra charge.
On eBAY... contact seller.. raise a dispute if relevant...risk of blame game....send back yourself with postage costs.. need to get proof of posting...risk + risk unless seller is decent.

There's no difference usually so I'd go for the 2x2GB so you can upgrade in future. The only place you would see a difference is the new Core i7 motherboards which are triple channel so are best with 3 sticks.

2 2gb sticks will be better, 4 sticks can quite often cause instability problems....

Besides this way you get to have 8gb in future....

gonna obtain these babies soon then, thankyou

having less sticks usually allows for better overclocks and makes less work for the northbridge (keeping it coooooler!)

is it for laptops :oops:

Nope not for laptops, just desktops.

These will not work with the new Intel i7 series as they need DDR3 and these are DDR2

nah, towers.

£37.08 with super saver delivery.

OCZ in my opinion are the cheekyest memory maker ever

look at those voltages...2.1V as standard??? these are basically 667mhz or below sticks overclocked to 800 just by adding voltage

nothing compares to corsair running with 1.8V factory default at 800mhz and 5-5-5-18 or 4-4-4-12 timings

OCZ work fine but don't expect to run them for long

p.s. ebuyer are doing the 2x2GB Corsair XMS2 for £39.99 look them up, much better deal

Don't know where you get your info, I have 2 sticks of these in my computer right now running @ 6 6 6 18 with 1.8V giving me 800mhz...

No overclocking being done here..:?

6-6-6-18 is slower than the CAS5 timings advertised, though - So you need less voltage, but get less speed.

Don't forget P&P ....

I have these, they're excellent, mine clock to around 1000Mhz with 2.2V at 5-5-5-18

Cheers, ordered this to go with my other 2x2GB OCZ PC2-8000. I was only running them underclocked anyway.
8GB, woo (yes, I do have a 64bit OS so it uses it)

s'alright, lifetime warranty will sort that

Hi please can some one tell me if this memory can be fitted to a dell inspiron 530
( this is what Dell recomends - 240 Pin DDR2 PC2-5300 667MHz 4gb)
But I`ve just fitted a ATI HD4870 card,so I`m looking for some faster memory.

Yup it'll fit, but you may struggle to clock it if the Dell doesn't let you adjust Vdimm.

2x2gb makes life easier for your memory controller ;-)

oh and OCZ have excellent warranties, they even paid for mine to be collected, i carnt recommend them enough

Anyone know if/where you can get 512MB sticks of 6400 memory from?

I've already got 2gig, and two free slots, but don't want to add another two gig because 32-bit windows plays funny with more than 3 gig of RAM. And I don't want to use a single 1gig stick because I'd lose the benefit of dual channel RAM.

XP 32 bit is fine with over 3GB of RAM, it just doesn't see more than around 3.5GB, still works perfectly well though.

Just get 2x1GB as it won't cost more than 2x512MB in all likelyhood, and when you upgrade to a 64bit operating system in future you'll be better off.

thanks for proving my point jakg

dunno overclocking for me just shortens the life of any component and isn't worth doing as you don't get more than 10-15% more performance

corsair seem not to struggle with timings and bus speeds at low voltages so...im still a big fan

P.S. warranty doesn't cover you if you burn the stick from too much overclocking

just as i want it, it's back up to 44 quid
