    glad you like it, OPP

    i'll be testing one of those kits very soon, maybe this weekend...
    hopefully it's really capable and extends BH-5 as i haven't seen ABSOLUTELY stable e.g. 260x10 6-2-2-2.0 1T from any 2x512MB of BH-5 in Dual Channel and AMD platform (NF2 or NF3).
    I work for Corsair Components, Inc.

    Didn't OCZ buy the rights of winbond to make BH-4? That's what these chips are aren't they?

    OCZ is not telling what these chips are, but i don't think these are BH-4, because they aren't as good as BH-5

    why is everyone saying these aren't as good as BH-5 ?

    It seems like every pair of these are smacking 250 MHz 2-2-2, with a 2x512MB kit no prob.

    BH-5 never consistently did that. Espescially with 2x512MB.

    Well, I think the 2*512mb pairs of OCZ VX might be better overclockable then the BH-5 pairs of 2*512mb

    The difference between OCZ VX and BH-5 is more in the fact that some 256mb BH-5 sticks have done 300mhz 2-2-2-5 and there is no way OCZ VX can beat that.
    Maybe the OCZ will clock a bit higher with the new ATI chipset, how knows what will happen?

    I'm thinking of buying a 2*512mb pair of OCZ VX for my new system but I'm not really sure if that would help allot sind I allready have some Corsair XMS PRO PC4000 that can do 260mhz at 2.5-3-3-7

    Well if my new system wil be an FX-53 or FX-55 I think I might just by a pair of OCZ VX but if my new system is going to be a Pentium-M Dothan I'll stick with my XMS.

    The problem these days is if you don't use 1gig and only have 512Mb like BH-5 in most cases, you lose out on performance. The 1gig gives you 2-way interleave, 2 gigs will give you 4-way interleave. This is on S939 motherboards anyway.
    So haveing 1 gig or higher is in if you can use aggressive timings,, so now you have VX

    I only played with the stuff for an hour, I think we'll see guys running 3D into the 270s on this mem. I'm sure this will be the next memory we'll see top 3D2001 users useing.

    I've never run mem test in my life, no need. If my mem can run 2001 lobby tests I'm a happy camper.

    As far as voltage, 3.65V idle, Sandra bench drops it to about 3.45V, 2001 lobby tests drop it around 3.52V.

    Thats nothing but good news! :banana4: Its great being able to score massivley in 3dmark with just 512Mb or less but we all know that most current games run pretty bad with anything less than a gig of ram regardless of clock speeds etc. It's good to know that the gap between overclocked gaming rigs and purely overclocking systems is being closed finally. Mind you I bet it's not long before 1 gig isnt enough to game with either
