    Does anybody have an explanation, why BH-5's in 2x256 config can run up to 300 fsb with enough volts while in 2x512 config they lose out to the VX?

    Thats a good point. I hope they don't discontinue this stuff. Gunna have to get the inside scoop on that, may have to stock up if nessasary.

    Singlesided vs. Doublesided! (afaik that is the problem)

    If they run with 260 2.0-2-2-5 1T i will get a pair of these, tahts nice for
    gaming and when i bench i will stick in my BH5s!

    I hear ya. 260 is my goal too. 260 X 10 would be sick with all timings tightened via A64 tweaker. Would be a HUGE jump over my current Mobile XP system.

    do you think it is possible for OCZ to run a product like this long term?

    Sweet stuff. OCZ has made some nice products the last few months... the Plat R2 (tccd), the VX and one of the most understated is the DDR2 that runs like 300 at 3-2-2-x

    I plan on buying a few more kits as well. And I'm glad to see that you're enjoying your new memory.

    ok, let's say, someone doesn't care on tight timings, what they can do with 2.5-3-3-10-1T-timings for example?

    ----- AMD K6-2 300 "Chomper" xxxxx xxxx xxxx /// 300 MHz @ 2,200 V -----
    ----- AMD Athlon XP 1700+ "Thouroghbred B" JIUHB 0306 MPMW /// 2400 MHz @ 1,900 V -----
    ----- AMD Athlon XP-M 2500+ "Barton" AQXEA 0327 UPMW /// 2450 MHz @ 1,850 V -----
    ----- AMD Athlon XP-M 2600+ "Barton" IQYHA 0401 XPMW /// 2500 MHz @ 1,750 V -----
    ----- AMD Athlon 64 3000+ "Newcastle CG" xxxxx 0418 WPMW /// 2600 MHz @ 1,600 V -----
    ----- AMD Athlon 64 3200+ "Winchester D0" xxxxx 0433 SPMW /// 2750 MHz @ 1,616 V -----

    ----- AMD Phenom II X2 555 BE "Callisto" xxxxx xxxx xxxx /// 4080MHz @ 1,375 V -----

    this ram doesnt do any better with loose timings over tight ones.... so u might as well run tight ones

    can you see the light? is it shining too bright? can you see the light at the end of the tunnel, i know i do, i know its true.

    blinky's right. I tried to loosen things up a bit and all I get are errors, regardless of the frequency I'm running them at. VX was made for 2-2-2 timings on the A64 platform.

    The reason that any ram OC's higher in 256 x 2 over 512 x 2 is that there are fewer banks to address.

    It also the same reason a single unit (usualy) ocs faster that 2 , the fewer banks the less stress on the memory controller. I posted a detailed explionation of this a year ago lol .

    I checked the price on VX, frankly I was expecting an outrageous price (like that killer DDR2 3-2-2 stuff @ $440) but was a bit surprised to see it at about $250....

    Wow, they are that cheap? That changes everything. OCZ's flavor of the month is usually more.

    After the thousands of posts and numerous threads on the VX, it puzzles me that you wouldn't know where to purchase a set. Fry's Electronics has 'em. mWave has them as well. And the list goes on...

    Anyone know about what the crossover point is where performance of 2.5-3-3-7 with say tccd chips would equal VX at 2-2-2-7? So in other words, how high an htt would 2.5-3-3-7 ram have to run to equal 250 or 260htt at 2-2-2-7 if cpu speed and all else was equal? This assumes the paltform is A64.

    Ryan, I think you missed the point or I didn't explain it properly which seems a more probable reason every time I reread my post . Actually, the essential question behind it all I asked was, why 2x512MB of VX oc's higher than BH-5 at tight timings. Is the simple answer that the chips used on VX are superior over BH-5? If yes, does that imply that if OCZ made a 2x256 MB kit of VX, that one would scream up to 300mhz DDR speeds much more easily than 2x256 BH-5 did provided that the memory controllers and mobos would be able to keep up with that?

    If the difference between 2x256 and 2x512 of VX is the same as 2x256 and 2x512 of BH-5/6, then that would be awesome. Somehow, I don't think that will be the case.

    Does that "gotcha" mean 2x256 VX would rock? If so, is there any chance OCZ would release the VX line in 256MB modules?

    oh I was responding to lobber ,

    256mb VX are bound to overclock much better than 512mb VX , and I have no clue if/when we plan to start making them .

    Posted these elsewhere but guys are asking "will these do 270 2-2-2 3D", "Why don't these scale much past 260 2-2-2 like BH did", "what's the fuss bout, these are no better than BH"....

    OPP, hope ya dont mind me posting a few screenies here to answer those questions

    My highest screeny with ~3.35vDimm 1x512 VX
    My highest SuperPI 32MB with ~3.35vDimm 2x512mb VX
    My highest 3Dmark01 with ~3.35v 1x512mb VX

    I have a feeling all our VX modules will run a fair bit higher once AMD release CPUs with better memory controllers too
