    Exactly what I've already said m8. ;)

    One thing to note...."CH5" based memory....which would be memory usually rated at 2-3-2-6 (RAS to CAS 3) does NOT like Intel 865/875 chipsets when running past 250fsb with a divider.

    You will get stuck in the 250-260 range (avg 255)....its something I personally got stuck with until I got my HyperX. So it depends which CPU you will be using, whether you will be hitting those speeds or not.

    Oh, and DON'T get the IC7-MAX3 either...you'll thank me later.

    Ohhhh!! i already got the IC7 Max 3. Co'z i have seen most of the reviews and they said its alright and has potentials. My other choice is the ASUS P4C800 E-Deluxe but... i dont know how did i like the Abit one.

    No and I actually think those numbers should read as 2.5-4-4-7 even though they are slightly faster than most PC4000 modules but still about 30% less efficient than fast timed PC3200-3500 modules and even with a 5:4 CPU/memory with a good overclock those fast timed PC3200-3500 modules will still have around a 5% performance advantage over those Geil modules.

    Wiggo, soulburner mentioned about "CH5" based memo which is 2-3-2-6 is no good to 865/875 chipsets. Now how about this one... this is the one I want to get its OCZ PC3500 with CL 2-2-3-6(433)MHz* is it thesame as CH5? or thats fine?

    Oh how about this one too GEIL memo CAS 2 6-3-3 1T Running @ DDR433Mhz PC3500

    thanks wiggo! this is gonna be my last question promise! hope Im not annoying you!:rolleyes:

    Just about all 3200/3500 memory is made with CH5.

    Most memory is made with CH-5. My CH-5 limits me to a 258FSB. Although I'm gettin' some BH-5. If your looking for some different types, TwinMOS makes some that don't use CH-5 chips.
