If you guys had a choice between these sets ram, what would you choose.. CORSAIR XMS2 6400PRO & 6400C4, mushkin eXtreme Performance 996523 (4-4-3-10 800), kingston hyperX ddr2-800, g.skill ddr 800 2GBHZ, and ocz platinum ddr2800 4-5-4-15, what would you choose? all from newegg and assuming which overclocks the best...

Anything there should be good. Not familiar with the Kingston though.

I use the Corsair 6400PRO, and it OC's to DDR2-1000 at 4-4-4. The 6400C4 is apparently a good overclocker also.

i hear the 6400pro is D9, or at least a few reviews I've read had said that, do you know if yours is?

and I thought I read something about G.Skill is switching over to D9 for their GBHZ..?

ocz platinum is only $215 while mushkin and corsair 6400pro are about $280...chances are I'll be running at around 900mhz, can anyone narrow it down to just one, or at least give some more input? And price is something nice to look at too.

IMO, it's quite simply the best stuff available right now....2gb @ 430+mhz, 3-3-3-x :slobber:

I dunno if that was for everyone but I'm lookin to spend like $200-$280 and I'd like to spend less

Personaly I'm lookin for something that'll have pretty good timings at around 900mhz. I hear the G.Skill ddr2 800 gbhz stuff on newegg is now d9...can anyone confirm?

I am quite sure that they are D9. Most top end DDR2 seem to be nowadays..

If you are interested in D9, check out these (http://www.ewiz.com/detail.php?name=T800UX2GC4). If they look good to you, you can check out my review on them here (http://techgage.com/review.php?id=4721).

Can anyone confirm the thread with the G.skill tech guy saying the g.skill ghbz PC6400 @ newegg has switched to d9 .... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820231065 ...he had results saying he was getting 1000mhz @ 4-4-3-1 with 2.3v...only $245. Has anyone else confirmed that newegg is selling the ghbz updated to d9? He works for g.skill and said they are now being sold through newegg, so I don't doubt him it'd just be nice to hear if anyone else has recently bought them and got similiar results. I don't know too much about ddr2, but I'm pretty sure 1000mhz @ 4-4-3-1 with 2.3v for only $245 and 2gb is really good.

corsair 6400c3 was getting 1100mhz @ 4-4-4-5 with 2.5v, you'd think spending $459, nearly twice the price of other 2gb kits, for a kit that is giving a little better results would be overkill? no?

You said you were planning to run @ around ddr2 900 - and @ that speed, the corsairs can't be beat ;)

Bah, twice the price though :-/ .. I'd really like to hear confirmation that the new g.skills are as he says they are..I'd buy em now if it was $245 for those results he was showing...

errr can anyone confirm that the g.skill ddr2-800 from newegg is using the 0605 kits rather then the 0604, and if so how are they running, and if you need ddr2 you should buy these from newegg and let me know... :-)

Sure, I'll buy some. Then risk breaking them just to get a simple code. :/

If that's what you ultimately needed to know, you should have chosen a better thread title :)

hey - there is a code on it I guess..the new ones are 0605 while the old ones are 0604 ... plus if anyone knows anything else, it'd be nice if you shared :-)
