That DDR2 1066 will really come in handy when overclocking. You won't be able to use both of them together. The faster RAM will slow down to match the weaker RAM.

yeah ill throw away my kingston's if i get these. So about overclocking If i go any higher than 203 on my bus, the blend test fails after 13 minutes, rounding error. But small ftts passes (tested for 4 hours)

Will getting pc2 8500 ram alleviate this problem?

Could we have some system specs please? We can't really give an opinion unless we have them.

Kuma 7750+
Asus 790gx
Kingston 2x1GB PC2-5300


EDIT:
Also theres another set of ram i am looking at: OCZ SLI

its default voltage can be 2.35, which means it'll overclock like mad. but why are there so many bad reviews? is it just because those people are dumbasses or is it really a bad product?
