Hello there

Please I need to know where find in an USA website selling this:

2GB(1GBx2) Crucial Ballistix DDR500 PC4000,

and

Mushkin 991493 2GB Kit DDR500 XP4000 Xtreme Performance Memory Retail
http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...tCode=83433-36

the Mushkin ran out of stock at Zipzoomfly.com


if you know where to find, please tell me

i was about to order this Cas2
Corsair TWINX2048-3500LLPRO 2GB Kit DDR433 XMS3500 ProSeries Memory Retail
http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...tCode=85020-35
$304.00
and my plan was to overclock them to DDR500 by relaxing the Cas to 3,
but i paused the order, and i think it's better to buy a Cas3 DDR500 2x1GB Kit, Dont u agree ?

At Least @ DDR500 I'll not be overclocking the Ram, just the CPU, so if the system crashes I'll know it's not the ram's Fault



So my choices are the Mushkin, the Crucial Ballistix (both of them i still don't know where to find in an USA website) and this two:

OCZ Dual Channel Gold GX 2048MB PC4000 DDR 500MHz Memory (2 x 1024MB)
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...723565&CatId=0
$269.99

Corsair XMS TWINX 2048MB PC4000 500MHz (2 x 1024)
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...647096&CatId=0
http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...tCode=85017-30
$227.90


Wich one shall i choose?

I know the Mushkin 991493 2GB Kit DDR500 XP4000 Xtreme Performance runs at 2,6V. That's the cool thing about it. I don't need to stress my MoBo, or even buy an DFI nF4 SLI-DR eXpert MoBo, to be able to use the Mushkin @ DDR500.

The Corsair TWINX2048-3500LLPRO 2GB Kit DDR433 XMS3500 ProSeries also runs at standard 2,6V.

Most of this DDR500 2x1GB, like the OCZ kit, run at 2,8V. But my board Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe standard is 2,6V for Ram. Won't 2,8V put the motherboard at risk?
Shall I need to have an DFI nF4 SLI-DR eXpert MoBo? so that i'm able to safely set the Ram voltage to 2,8V without risking frying my MoBo.


I am buying a new CPU (X2 4400+)with the Toledo Core. So bye bye to the issues i had my 3500+ Clawhammer Core (wich included low overclockability caused by 130nm process, and limitations of the CPU memory controller).


What DDR500 2x1GB do u think i should buy? OCZ? Corsair ? Mushkin ? Crucial ? And possibly Swap my Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe for a DFI nF4 SLI-DR eXpert MoBo ?

Or should I just buy the Corsair TWINX2048-3500LLPRO 2GB Kit DDR433 XMS3500 ProSeries and then try to overclock it to DDR500 by relaxing the Cas to 3 ??? Although running Corsair TWINX2048-3500LLPRO @ DDR500 would also imply a raise in the voltage to almost 2,8V .. hmmm

Thanks for ur help

the corsair 3500PROLL is actually rated at 2.8v so dont worry.
