    yeah read that.. but at 3.0v vdimm

    alot of so and so memory do well at 3.0v vdimm as well

    i'm getting 270+ mhz with ADATA PC4000 at 2.85v can't wait to get my 4PCA3+ and put 3.0v vdimm on it and tighten the timings

    my 2.4C won't make 300FSB hehe

              Nope, it's right there in the smiley box. . . . . I hope I get em' soon so we can see what to expect. . . I'd love to be in the position that I have to search for a CPU that has to keep up with the RAM for once. . . . .

                  Nope, 3.2C max is 238FSB., but the 2.4C is 288FSB. . . . .

                  I can also borrow something that goes over 300FSB, but that's not my chip. . . . .

                      I agree... 3.0 vdimm is more than most people will be willing to do... I myself will be getting my p4c800E tonight and will be doing the vdimm mod so that I can have 3.0+ available to use on my mem. Right now, I only have the 3700 premier to test it with, but from what I hear, it is good to around 520ddr...

                      I guess I was just surprised to see how good the Corsair did (even with high vdimm) after I had read so many horrid comments about it.

                      Wished I had it here to test myself though... now that would be fun!

                          Well at Newegg, the dual Gold kit is $230 and the Premier kit is $190.

                          I bought the 2 sticks of Gold (non-dual) for $80 a stick at the time.

                          Non-dual is much cheaper... but the downside is that MAYBE the sticks will not match as good...

                          Hope that helps...
