That RAM isn't bad. At 1.5-2-2-5, it may have the fastest DDR400 (PC3200) timings, but it loses if you get higher than that.

Here, get this.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820146392

Mushkin Redline XP4000 DDR-500 (PC4000) RAM. It owns. It has 2-2-2-5 timings stock, but when you overclock it and give it voltage, it owns the GeIL ONE RAM. It can go to 1.5-2-2-5 at DDR-500 speeds, not DDR-400. Winbond's CH die isn't bad, but their BH-5's were legendary overclockers. Samsung's TCCD isn't bad either, too bad they discontinued them. The TCC5's aren't as good.

Just make sure your motherboard supports 3.2v+.

Yay, I win.

Try the scan 3xs chameleon.
The paint alone costs 1000 as its thermochromic- which means it changes colour as the PC heats up!!!

Haha, why has nobody mentioned a PC with a Pentium 840? What about Velocity Micro's $4k PC with a Pentium 840 Extreme Edition tuned up to 4.0Ghz

Lol, Alvino squeezing in the last word. I have to admit the Redline does have impressive stats, but I can't believe it cost less than the Geil ONE at the same time, have lower latency. That's weird.

Check newegg.

Unfortunately, I've heard that Mushkin isn't manufacturing the Redline XP4000 anymore...which sucks. That means you should buy it right away if you really want it! Because once newegg.com's stock is out, it's GONE!
