Which Ram?

Ok kids, I am going to order some ram for my OC game machine I am building.
It will most likely be a 3800 X2 and I have a Lan Party Mboard.
So here are choices I am looking at. Prices are around the same whish one will make OCing the easiest?

Timing: 2-3-2-5
Voltage: 2.6V

Timing: 2-3-3-8
Voltage: 2.8V

Timing: 2-3-2-5
Voltage: 2.8V

Timing: 3-3-3-8
Voltage: 2.6V

These are all OCZ 1Gx2 pieces. How do you all feel about Mushkin?

I would go for the first one lowest timings and voltage giving you more head room to up the voltage and maybe even get the timing tighter.

I used to like Mushkin's memory a lot. Now? Not so much.

first three are probably all teh same sticks. first one is high-bin, while the others are lower quality chips of the same kind. the Last is most likely Micron, while the first three most likely infineon.


I'd be taking teh 2.6v 2-3-2-5 stuff, myself, unless you get pc4000 @ 3-3-2-8.

Things are changing rapidly I got Mushkin PC4400 CL2.5 2*512MB and run perfect (2.73 Volts) up to 300 MHz 2.5-3-3-8/2T.
One OCZ kit was better (I tested OCZ PC4000 CL2.5 Golden edition).
Anyway post your impressions!
