    It is the type of ram chips used to make the memory sticks. Micron makes the memory chips, D9xxx with the xxx being 3 more letters. My ram uses Micron D9GMH ram chips and they are pretty much the best possible DDR2 chips available today.

    I dont know what you have againest XS but I surely dont like it when some bashes out XS.
    Its best for the best we leave out flaming out at others forums

    The new bios for the DS3 seems to fix most of the issues with the DS3 and d9s.

    During our testing of these BIOS releases we continued to experience overclocking issues once we passed the 450FSB mark. The overclocking limit was due to issues with memory modules based on Micron D9 (G). The Micron D9 (G) IC continues to be the performance leader in the upper end memory market and is generally a requirement at this time for DDR2 modules exceeding 900MHz on a regular basis. Since the lowest memory ratio offered by the Intel P965 chipset at this time is 1:1 Micron D9 (G) based memory is a requirement for overclocking past 450FSB rates. Gigabyte continued to promise overclocking improvements when using Micron D9 based memory modules in each BIOS release but it was not until the F8I beta release that we truly noticed any improvements.During our testing of these BIOS releases we continued to experience overclocking issues once we passed the 450FSB mark.

    yup GMH it one of the best but not the best.. GMH is surely found on most of the 8000 or so CL5 memory.
    But most of the memory that are rated for CL4 at 8000 have GKX ;)

    the D9GKX is the best chip you can get in the memory..

    waiting to see how well Elpida's new 70Nm does..
    oh you have teams 6400 GMH ;) they are really good overclockers.

    both my memory kits are with D9GKX
    I run a P5B dlx, I will post about what I am running soon

    I wouldn't call what I posted overt flaming, I just have strong opinions. I do not expect people to like it, I just expressed my feelings and would like to see more reliable sources quoted. XS is a good resource, but.......... (I will stop there).

    Yeah, I agree that the GKX has shown to be quite strong. Hard to find too. It would sure be nice is Elpida could get something to market that clocked very well soon so that maybe we can get the prices down. I bought my ram on sale and it is already $100 more than what I paid for it.

    As for my comments earlier, as I said, they were not meant to offend. Look forward to updates.
