    Assuming that you don't have several other threads in which you could have posted this question, wouldn't you have to tell us something about your RAM in order for us to answer this? At what latencies is the RAM rated? At what speed is the RAM running? What voltage are you supplying the RAM and what voltage can you supply the RAM?

    It will make a difference in certain things, but the vast majority of applications will get less than 2% difference.

    Memtest86+ is the only memory tester you'll need, though I believe you've been told this in other threads.

    Try putting it at CAS 2.5 and 2.7V. If it doesn't run through memtest86+, try it again at 2.8V.

    Theoretically anything, but it will certainly help a lot more in certain applications. Anything that involves a lot of RAM usage will get the most benefit. By this I don't mean applications that put hundreds of MBs or GBs in RAM, but rather ones that regularly access it. Some games may see a small boost, though most games are going to be limited by your video card more than your system RAM or processor.

    its value ram for starters ,but its good ram.kingston make solid modules but as far as the value part goes,i would suggest 3-3-3-8 for amds that are being overclocked but what do i know.and i told u zaq....prime95(blendtest) for windows ram stability,and metest95(test#5) for straight ram testing...

    i must have told u now 1,000 times to run those 2 dam programs..i even gave u links to them.i give up.

    Wow zach you must have some cash to blow if your spending $200+ on ram. Why do you need OCZ ram? To me Flashy looks and gold heatspreaders are not worth the 200+ pricetag. My mem cost 70$ and it runs ddr480 without errors fine!(Tested on memtest.)
