    What motherboard do ya plan on usin' in that setup? :?:

    If ya plan on usin' one based on either the i865 or i875 chipset then get 2 sticks of good fast timed quality PC3200-3500 brand name memory.

    Corsair, Kingston, Mushkin, and OCZ all have modules that use the BH5 chips however they are drying up fast as they are out of production.

    The trick is, finding which ones carry these chips. Only certain model numbers do.

    FX5900 - 3DMark2001 [20,566] - 3DMark2003 [7,281] - Aquamark3 [56,694]
    Ti4400 - 3DMark2001 [16,028]

    Bah, too late. See, BH5 RAM (I'm taking thats what you meant) is older stuff that is capable of incredibly low timings (2-2-2-5). However, the stuff you got really isnt, as anything 3700 and up has horrible timings (3-4-4-8 usually). Anyways, you can still get adequate performance by cranking up the FSB. : peace2: Mista K6

    -7200 RPM Maxtors: 60GB (2MB) on mobo and 160GB (8MB) on ATA/133 PCI Card
    -Creative Inspire T7700 7.1 Speaker System on an Audigy 2

    SO the memory im getting from corsair is still capable of good overclocking speeds. See i thought i was investing in ultra fast mem compared to the 3200 xms im told xms 3200 is just already clocked at 3500 speeds. and the low latency models. but i thought 3700 was capable of faster speeds but just lower more stable latencies or somethin. Hey can you still buy these older BH5 chips??
