    I'm considering Corsair XMS2 6400C4, OCZ Titanium DDR2-800 and OCZ Platinum Rev2. I was planning to get the Platinum Rev2 until I learned the memory wasn't Micron so now I'm not sure. What should I get in a 2GB kit? :confused:

    Corsair quit using micron in some of their recent kits, also. I have a 1 GB OCZ Plat kit, that runs stable at 947MHz 5-5-5-15 with only 2.15 volts. I'm very happy with my OCZ, and would recommend them to anyone.

    I have a set of gskill that I can run 4-4-4-12 @ 950mhz. Pushing 2.3v through them though, but with a fan blowing on them, they stay pretty cool.

    That gskill set should run pretty nice. I love mine.

    Well, I use the Crucial Ballistix DDR2-1000, and it runs very well at 4-4-3-10, 1T at 800 MHz and 5-5-5-13, 2T at 1120 MHz. So, it is quite flexible. All at 2.2V (stock spec).

    The Super Talent has become a premiere choice of the OC crowd at XS.

    And, here is a sample of what nicely binned memory can do.

    4-4-4-12, 1T, 885 Mhz, 2.2V

    Well, I have not tightened it up, yet, but the Crucial does 1140, 5-5-5-15, 2T, 2.2V.

    Im sure it can get to 1000mhz no problem and maybe a little higher. Would probably have tighter timings than most modules that go in excess of 950mhz

    You should take a look at my review of the Crucial Ballistix pc2-5300. It did over 800mhz 4-4-4-12 with only 1.8v!! and can reach over 1ghz with 4-4-4-10 timings!
