    Ok I'll do that.

    EDIT: I know I missed TwinMOS, Rambus and other oldies but I figured whatevs. I think I got the bigger ones. Also note that it started alphabet..ically I think it's spelled but it got out of hand. Sorry about that.

    EDIT: AAaaaaand no G-Skill. I rule so hard at this.

    You did not have G.Skill (not an oldie), so I voted "other".

    I did use OCZ, but, it was finicky; so I switched to G.Skill and have not a complaint or regret.

    Edit: sneekypeet, beat me to it.:)

    Oh, I see what Frick did! I object, your honor... the poll is rigged!:laugh:

    I'd guess that "other" is counted always as a 0 answer, so it based off the rest.

    Looks to be based off of the # of people that vote and not the total number of votes. All of those categories had 1 vote each and there were 3 voters. so 33.33. The math must not agree much with multiple answer polls lol.

    Patriot, Geil, Other.

    I dont give a hoot about 24/7 ram... for benching ram, I just want to know what IC's the sticks have. PSC FTW on IB!

    I recently switched to Elixir for my main computer and use Patriot in the spare/other computer.
    Had loads of Corsair in the past along with a kit of G.Skill.

    At home I have a lot of G.Skill, some OCZ, Corsair. In servers I've used a lot of Crucial and Kingston.

    In the past I've used Mushkin and whatever I've harvested from old machines - Super Talent and other.

    I selected all seven brands that I currently have, even though I am not using most of them.

    Kingston is pretty much all I use. Not a single bad stick or motherboard incompatibility, ever. I've used Corsair, Samsung (RDRAM), and OCZ. Forgot to check Samsung.

    I have G. Skill in basically all of my computers and have had excellent experience with them. If at all possible I'll always go with them. Memory when not overclocking is one of those things where brand doesn't really matter. If it works, it works.

    Sammy in my notebook (8 GB 'green' DDR3) and Kingston 16 GB in my desktop.

    Why? Cause I've never had Kingston not be recognized, and its -always- on the qualified memory list!

    I agree with Mushkin bit

    Ive used Mushkin, Crucial, Kingston, Corsair, GSkill.

    Ill just say however if Value series ram can overclock like a SOB n stay cool then it should be proof of quality for the higher end models
