muskin 3500 timing
2 2 2

i do a lot of overclocking and kingston 4000 sucks so i selling it to friend and getting new men.
I love Mushkin (See Sig). OCZ definitally isn't bad at all. Both manufactures produce top notch RAM.

If your interested I have 4 sticks of 256MB Mushkin PC3500 Level 2 with the ever so loved BH5 chips (CAS 2-2-2-5).
I've heard some great stuff about Geil, they any good? They are cheap and seem to be good.

Looks pretty good paul, although you might want to start your own thread

As for the ram, I'm loving my mushkin. I have my PC3200 running at 233 @ 5-2-2-2 (I don't know why I always give my ram timings backwards... ohwell, you know what I mean ), using 2.9vDimm. I don't know, can it possibly get much better than that? You should buy Rudy's ram if your thinking of going for mushkin.
$12 thermal paste? You need some case fans in there, and I don't think you need Windows XP 😛
Thanks for recommending my RAM SS Joe. The reason I still have it is because I have been pretty busy. When I do get some time to post it up on Ebay I am too lazy and don't do it. Looks like it benifis me though. Mushkin RAM is the only computer part that I have puchased and the price go up! Since the BH5 chips are all out people are raising the prices. Newegg cranked the prices up $75 USD on all BH5 RAM left. The Muskin RAM on Ebay is going for $100 USD more now adays. I guess its at a premium right now. I need to get it posted. I thought I could sell it to a HHer before some idiot buys it on Ebay.
From OCZ and Mushkin, I'd go Mushkin

hehe agree.
at ddr400-ddr430 range, the BE5 chips owz with tight timing
But anything above that, OCZ rules. Talk about DDR510-ish with decent timing of CAS 2.5 in synchronize mode. only OCZ 3700 rev 2 can handle it with ease.
