    it's still just OC'd 6ns chips - memory manufacturers can get away with that until there is an official JEDEC PC3200 spec.
    from the reveiws I've seen most Samsung PC2700 stands a good chance of running @ 400MHz eff. too.

    I won't be buying any PC3200 until it's real 5ns chips ( & when I have a mother board the need 400MHz memory :D)

    KingMax has released a true PC3200..meaning it has 5ns memory. However, I found that 99% of the reviewers ((yes, even the ones with the same lot number as the one reviewed here)) say that top notch PC2700 RAM outperforms/overclocks better than KingMax PC3200. Why is that? Shouldn't the PC3200 perform better than the PC2700 at the right conditions: Running at 200 FSB, for example? Yet, the most that Cameron was able to get it to was 217..while the Corsair XMS PC2700 can be overclocked higher, and its only 6ns memory.

    the OCZ ram is frequently OC'd chips - at least the suff above PC2100 is - I don't know if they're using 6ns chps for their PC2700 now - it wouldn't surprise me if they weren't.

    You have to ask yourself - is the permanently bonded heat spreader on oCZ memory to aid in coolong or to hide the speed designation on the chips? - and if you remove it, you void your warranty - what a coincidense

    So far there is no true PC3200 RAM..I mean one that runs at 5ns. Well..correction..the KingMax runs at 5ns but it seems to perform poorly all over the place. Again, WHY is that? Shouldnt faster RAM perform better than slower RAM ((PC2700 v. PC3200)) If you take a motherboard and set the FSB to 200 and put it some PC3200 RAM and benchmark would you get a higher/lower score than if you put it a PC2700 RAM in a motherboard that is running at 166 FSB?

    I have had no problems with my Kingmax DDR-400 memory that i have tested

    I used a KT333 board and set the memory to 166Mhz (DDR-333) then pushed up the FSB untill the memory was running DDR-400

    then pushed the memory even further to see just what the maximum speed is

    No way in hell I was ever going to hit 200Mhz FSB.

    :cool: Any chance of getting links to reviews of the ultra high speed memory especially comparisons among the various brands?

    :cool:
