View Full Version : OCZ or Mushkin in P4C800E-Deluxe

I've decided to replace my current Corsair PC3200LLPT sticks because, despite my best efforts, they are just not performing as I expected they would in my Asus P4C800E-Deluxe board. Possibly one stick is faulty or there may be a compatability issue...anyway, I have a choice...

Mushkin Level 2 PC3500 1gb dual channel kit.


OCZ PC3500 EL 1gb dual channel kit

Both seems to have been well received and look like they will perform well in my system, with a mildly overclocked P4 3.0C. AnandTech seem to hold both in high regard with the OCZ performing slightly better. Based on this, I was all set to go for the OCZ until I noticed that in their Motherboard Qualification guide they recommend running the memory at 2.5-3-3-7 for optimum stability. Mushkin, on the other hand, state that their sticks are stable at 2-2-2-6

What would you choose. I'll be grateful for any responses but particularly from people with the same mainboard as me.
