    Just read somewhere that they don't make the ram, just buy it and
    rebrand it, anyone know who they buy it from ?

    Thanks.

    Does anyone make their ram ?, Corsair, ect ?

    Thanks again.

    Neither OCZ, Corsair, Gail or any other 'overclocking spacialist' ram is
    made (as in the memory chips) by the company that markets it. They all just
    buy memory chips from memory manufactureres (Micron, Winbond, Samsung etc)
    and put it on their PCB... then they test it to make sure it performs to the
    'enhanced' spec.

    There's only a handfull of ram manufactures. Other companies like Corsair,
    OCZ, Muskin, etc. either assemble them into modules or have someone else
    do it for them using their name on the finished product. Almost anything
    you buy these days aren't really made by the company you buy them from.
    The key to ram is not which module you buy or from who, but the actual ram
    chip that's on it, I'm not sure who the big players are any longer, but
    when I was building ram boards for old 6502 machines, it was Hitachi, NEC,
    TI, Samsung, and maybe a couple more I can't remember. Look up the specs
    on the ram the boards use and if you know what you're looking for you can
    tell how well it will perform compared to another.

    I buy the cheapest (well close) ram I can find. If I don't want to
    research the module for the ram chips on it I just buy faster ram than I
    need. OCZ ram is as good as any I guess as long as you research what
    you're buying. Personally, I think they're high. I don't know what size
    you want, but I'd get something like this.

    http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=20-156-010&depa=0

    or maybe one of these.

    They might be high in your country but in Austrlai they are cheaper
    than corsair and kingston, the corsair ram i want is 620 aussie
    dollars, the same type OCZ is 530 dollars.

    Thats for Dual Channel, PC3200 512X2 :)


    So i guess its were in thw world you are depnds on the price ?

    If the stability of the more expensive modules is better at the rated speed,
    then surely the cheap one must not be completely stable, and should
    therefore not rated at 250MHz?

    What the hell is DDR copper? Or a DDR heatsink? Perhaps it's twice as fast
    at removing heat?

    How can the Markey Grade stuff NOT be Dual Channel capable?

    How can the Market Grade stuff be incompatible with certain chipsets?

    Perhaps this is the work of a complete moron of a marketing type trying to
    differentiate the products? And where are the specs on Latencies? Since it
    doesn't even tell you what the "major brand" is, you can't even find out.

    Perhaps thats the reason why you felt it necessary to badly post 4
    ill-considered replies.

    But then, considering that the last full moon in Aus and the UK was on the
    2nd of this month, probably not.

    No big debate here.
    4 Machines...All with OCZ ram
    1 with PC2700 3 with PC3200 Enhanced 5-2-2-2 timings.
    All stable at rated speed of 200Mhz at stock timings....with relaxed timming
    6-3-3-2 can achieve 220Mhz stable...passes memtest 86 all tests 5 passes.

    Boards used are Chaintech 7NJL4/Asus A7N8X Rev 2/Abit NF7 rev 2...2 boards
    are the Asus.

    I have also in past used Geil/Infinion/Crucial and have had no probs with
    any of those either.

    It show the current state of affairs when achieving the rated speed is
    lemme see...last machine for ME, first motherboard died within an hour...second
    went 4 days...first vid card wouldn't run 3d at all...had to tell supplier to
    run my order history and see if I ACTUALLY knew how to bolt one of these
    together. (AND I'd spent a fair amount of money with 'em...LOL!)

    Current state of affairs is...build it faster, let the customer do the
    R&D...LOL!

    Thats pretty unlucky.

    Last machine I built has been perfect!

    Couple of dodgy hard drives in the past (both some form of IBM DeathStar -
    time will tell if Hitachi can do a better job, until then I'm sticking with
    WD)
