Ooo sorry, im new to this.

Will see if I can edit to include the postage charge.

No worries, welcome
It just helps if you include all costs, shipping can turn a great deal into a rubbish one if your not careful.

Understood mate, it makes the deal a bit less attractive but even at that price its the cheapest I have seen.

Looking around I think 6400 4GB is more expensive for some reason.

Hot. Cheapest I've seen 8500 4gb kit for. Cas5 too.

ordered this last week.

Delivered in 3 days. Installed and works great.

You can get 4-4-4-15 timings for just a little more however, this is 5-6-6-18

Like this for example

i know this is cheaper but for an extra £5 I personally would rather have the improved timings.

the timings will only apply at quoted or rated speed, using the memory you pointed out at higher speeds will affect its ability to stick to those timings

ps are oc'rs really that bad on cs as the web implies? my m8 just ordered a system from them despite me spec'ing one for him and they couldn't supply one at reqd spec.

That memory is only PC2-6400/800MHz.

oh for some reason I thought the memory in THIS deal was 800Mhz, not sure why I thought that.

Opinion change time, this is hot!!!

They are ok, they can be a bit difficult to return things too though. If you do have to return something it better be dead, if they find a glimmer of life in it they send it back.
I had a mate who's graphics card artifacted after just a few mins of game play all the time but it could get into windows ok so OCuk charged him a 20% (or something around that mark) restocking fee.
