    Because im just asking a simple question on ram.

    fan /user support sites for clarification it becomes a moot point!

    DFI is less OCZ preferencial than it is partial to Corssaire/Patriot etc. And fails quite often to post at stock OCZ speeds, less for what possible havoc dual channel OC creates............google that.

    Sorry, Yawgy, if the snow still happens to crotch deep in MinniSoda.

    Seeming how OCZ has a lifetime warranty and has a better price/performance ratio than Corsiar, it seems to be the way to go.

    I went to both support forums and searched around. I couldn't find such widespread problems. In fact, I found quite a number of heavy posters and Admins/Mods recommending both DFI and OCZ sites recommending the two be used together, as I so often do. I could even quote a few people saying sometihng to the extent of "Go with OCZ. It's 100% compatible with DFI." In fact, if you've seen any problems between the two on forums a bit, it's probably because of the volume at which both are bought.

    However, there are some fairly widespream issues that aren't major issues (and certainly don't warrant you coming in and saying stupid things like "DFI is less OCZ preferencial than it is partial to Corssaire/Patriot etc."), but are issues regardless.

    If you read through the threads you'll notice people only have problems when overclocking or using overclocking RAM, which is to be expected.

    Sure, 181,000 hits for "OCZ dual-channel problems" without quotes. I got 305,000 hits on "Corsair dual-channel problems" with quotes. Add DFI each search, and Corsair and OCZ get 74,100 and 71,500 respectively.

    That said, I prefer not to use heresay and Google searches to give my recommendations for RAM. I have been to around a dozen hardware sites and read reviews on nearly every single OCZ RAM (most of them being combined with DFI boards) and in every case there were no problems and OCZ usually performed best (Crucial and Mushkin offer some comparable choices for OCing, while most of the better brands offer comparable RAM for stock speeds).

    You're not sorry. You just sit there and laugh at my suffering. The sad part is, it's too hot in my room because of the computers (I'm guessing) and my parents won't let me open the window. It's sad when it's unbearably hot in a room while it's -10F outside...

    I have seen more problems with Corsair lately than any other ram. Especially with their 2GB kits. I run only OCZ ram, but mostly only because I like the UTT high voltage ram. For me, VX is the only way to go. It is very fast and very tight and I like to run alot of benchmarks. And the new OCZ GX has been overclocking even further. I really would only buy OCZ, but that is just my opinion.
