Awesome Ram for the Price G.Skill

Postposted on Thu Mar 06, 2008 8:45 pm

I purchased this ram when I upgraded from my 185 opty , this is some good ram for the price.
Over clocked it over ddr2 1000 with ease stock volts , I was amazed.

i have the same pair in my system

they're a heap of fun to overclock although i couldn't reach the advertised 4-3-4-5 timings...just doesn't seem to follow the territory i.e. i don't think my CPU corresponds with the RAM...coz i've checked over the netz that people have indeed reached that uber low 4-3-4-5 timing

but whatever, good for you man :D it's indeed a great buy!

Yep, good stuff there. All I buy these days are G.Skill or Corsair.. sometimes OCZ if it's low enough.

I have that same set matched up with a e2160 and I am very impressed. It's currently at 891mhz at 1.94V 5-5-5-15. With the 266 divider, I have that e2160 18 hours Prime95 stable at 3.0ghz. Looking forward to pushing the ram more someday!

What are your timings at to get it to 1000mhz at stock volts?
