you might be alright with the ''PI'' sticks, the ICs may take a little more punishment, but out of all RAM sticks ive had the GSKILL were the only ones ive had die on me.

I think I'll give them a shot, and if the G.Skills crap out on me I'll just stick my 2GB of OCZ 9200 back for the original 6GB.

the GSKILL's should have ''lifetime warranty'' anyway, if they crap out send them back, they will replace them....


i have 8gb OCZ GOLD, theyre sturdy sticks..... the ''EVP'' does allow quite a lot of voltage adjustment but they clock like crap

the highest i can get em is about 900mhz @ 6-6-6-18, theyre not very good for an OCer, but fine for everyday use at rated speeds....

Ah ok, that's good to know. I'll just see how it goes.

I couldn't get my OCZ 8500 / 9200 mix up over 857 with any sort of stability so I went the other direction with the 4-3-3-5 timings. All in all I'd rather the mHz as I care more about game FPS than benchmarking scores but I'll take what I can. I suppose the main thing is stability. :P

I have a set of GSKILL pc2-6400 as well, and I would try to match the ram timings close to the GSKILL if you can.
