Re: Corsair PC8888 Dominator Series DDR2

Corsair PC8888 domainators are a waste of money for Intel DDR2, unless you are using AM2 platform. I know of 3 folks over at XS forums who tested them on Core 2 platform and they don't go much past 520-530mhz 4-4-4 at 2.4v regardless of vdimm. Probably better off with Gskill PC6400PHU2 2GBHZ or Patriot PC8000 4-4-4-12 at 2.2v rated stuff (which is 30% cheaper http://i4memory.com/showthread.php?t=3018)

Re: Corsair PC8888 Dominator Series DDR2

Hi i am thinking about buying this Corsair PC8888 Dominator,do you think it would suit a E6700 and Asus P5W64 WS Pro setup,one thing i am not sure about is that in this rams specs it says EPP standard 4-4-4-12-2T,but isn't EPP meant for AMD motherboards only,would i still get those timings with an intel system or would i only get those timings with an EPP motherboard.

I am really having trouble trying to pick between these 3 1000mhz+ rams
Corsair PC8888 Dominator
OCZ PC2-8000 Titanium Alpha VX2
G.Skill F2-8500PHU2-2GBHZ PC8500 4-4-4-5
Would someone be able to recommend the best one i should go for out of those 3.

Thanks so the G.Skill F2-8500PHU2-2GBHZ PC8500 is deffently better ram than the OCZ PC2-8000 Titanium Alpha VX2 you think,i read a few reviews on the OCZ PC2-8000 Titanium Alpha VX2 and they said it was very good but i havn't been able to find any reviews on the G.Skill F2-8500PHU2-2GBHZ PC8500 yet.

FYI

2GB OCZ PC8000 Platinum Extreme 4-5-4-15
and
2GB OCZ PC8000 Titanium Alpha 4-4-4-12

both use exact same Micron ICs just one is rated for a tighter default timings and higher warrantied 2.4v vdimm max (Titanium Alpha).

For price point of view, the 2GB OCZ PC8000 Platinum Extreme 4-5-4-15 is around AUD$610-665 which is probably best bang for the buck at >PC8000 rated timings besides the Patriot PC8000 loose timing 5-5-5-5 Micron that Arctan has doing 555mhz 4-4-4 http://i4memory.com/showthread.php?p=50424#post50424

Thanks eva2000,there doesn't seem to be a real lot of difference between those 2 OCZ,if i went for OCZ i will grab the 2GB OCZ PC8000 Platinum Extreme 4-5-4-15.
So if you were choosing between the 2GB OCZ PC8000 Platinum Extreme 4-5-4-15 and the G.Skill F2-8500PHU2-2GBHZ PC8500 4-4-4-5 what one would you go for,would the G.Skill have the edge because its got another 66mhz more than the OCZ.

I don't mind spending the money to get the best ram because i only upgrade my system every few years so i will be getting a lot of use out of the parts i buy.
All the parts im buying i am trying to get the best of everything except the cpu,i can't see the value in that 6800 conroe so im getting the E6700.
