could you reccomend me some ram for i865/i875 to run @ high frequency while maintaining low latencies and running 1:1 (stable), my VX is bugging me.

Anytime :)

Since UTT never worked that good with Intel chipsets I would recommend TCCD for you if you can't get your hands into any good old BH-5. Also both Redline HP3200 and Redline XP4000 has gone EOL and we don't manufacture them anymore.

In my opinion TCCD is your best bet if you can't get BH-5.

Yes, BH-5 and TCCD would be your best bet. Personally I would try to find some nice clocking 2x512Mb BH-5 modules since 2x256Mb is no good for anything else than benching anymore.

With 865/875 chipset the timings affects more to performance than they do on A64 so I would try to get that BH-5 somewhere and if you can't possibly find any, just go with TCCD :)

Hello Mushkin geek type people


I was on your site earlier eyeing up RAM for my system. (Currently running 1GB and a half of mediocre/cheapo stuff)

After browsing for a while and using your Analysis tool doofer I spyed this:

Mushkin (991434) 2 Gb HP3200 Dual Pack 2 3 2 (2 x 1GB)

Now, if I give my ASUS P4S800D-X/Asus P4P800-E Deluxe 4 sticks of this it should fly right?
(it/they can take 4GB of RAM)

I am not (really) a gamer (Shock horror and yes I am a freak) however I do use Bryce, Paintshoppro w/FraxFlame plug-in and a lot of other image editing software like Fireworks etc and I multi task while using all of the above running at the same time a lot.

The other day I maxxed out of RAM (One was not amused) while working away so hence shopping about for RAM up to the task.

So oh Guru's of the Mushkin kit, what say you?
Will it allow me to do what I need to do with no quibbles and no holds barred no matter how hard I push it without OC'ing it. & will it also make enough Case modders make the appropriate "oohs" and "Ahhhhs" and cause suitable amounts of dribble when I mention I got 4 Gigs of your bad boy kit in my rig?

(Bearing in mind you sell me kit and it sucks I am an Infantry trained soldier and can take your head off from 800m with a 5.56mm rifle.)

those should work well. the are very stable memory built with infineon chips. and the latency should allow you to do things faster also.

Im also thinking to get that kit. But I want to be 100% sure its going to do 290Mhz... Can I be that for at least 99%?

There's only very very very few amount modules that will do the 290MHz 3D stable. Average is pretty much from 260 to 280. Personally I haven't even seen a CE-6 chips doing 290MHz 3D stable. I've heard but I haven't seen.

The problem is on the chips and they can't take that high of an frequency, so it's all about the batch Infineon sends to us. I guess the chance to get kit that will do is about 3-5% no matter the manufacturer. Chips just can't take it.

Ok, thx for you reply :D. I read in Anandtech's 2GB round up (part 2) they reached 293Mhz 3-3-2-7/8 @ 2.8V. Oh well, its still a nice kit :toast:.
