Kingston Value vs Corsair Value RAM for OC SockA XP-M

Discussion in 'Overclocking' started by Phil, Squid-in-Training, Dec 23, 2004.

  1. I'm at home for the winter break so I don't have access to my main comp
    right now. I'm wanting to get some new RAM for a new rig.

    Okay so I've got a NF7-S 2.0 with a 2200+ XP-M and I'm planning on doing
    200, maybe 215FSB with it. Newegg has (1) Corsair Value Select 256MB 3200
    for $37.73 + $4.73 each. They also have Kingston ValueRAM Dual Kit 256MBx2
    3200 for $76.03 + $4.73. Thus, I would be paying about $5 more for the two
    sticks of Corsair as opposed to the combo Dual package of Kingston. Both
    have similar, if not identical, reviews.

    The Kingston is rated CL3, and the Corsair is rated CL2.5, but the reviews
    all have the same stories (if you want CL2 , lower FSB to under 210 or so)
    for both brands.

    Which one should I choose?

  2. Don't get either the Kingston or the Corsair..
    Get Kingmax PC2700, with the low bus of a 2200+ it's better to go with
    slower ram.
    Plus, in a P4 System, I've had my Kingmax PC2700 up over 440 MHz
    or about 220 MHz.
    I Hope this helps you.

  3. Thanks... but I was looking at PC3200 minimum because I'd be running at 200+
    FSB with the 2200. I'll take your advice into consideration, though...

    I'm running 2 dimms of Kingston Hyper X 3500 and 2 dimms of Corsair XMS 3500 at
    the same time in my KNXP Ggabyte at 220 FSB.
