Default Re: Best gaming Memory?

Doesn't corsair and G-skill and most memory company's have a life time warranty? Every product you buy no matter how good it is will have failures, it's just life in the electronic world.

Meh. It's about like any other. Works good, but is NOT very friendly about replacing previous different brand. Crucial is rather sensitive about not liking to be put in a motherboard that previously had a different brand of ram in it. You have to clear CMOS before putting the Crucial in or it will not be totally stable. Never had that problem with Patriot, but not a real big deal either. Corsair can be iffy about that, as can OCZ. Kingston is usually very friendly about not caring what ram was in the system before.

I used to buy high dollar memory like my corsair Dominator,but now I look for the cheapest with the best RMA support.I bought 16gigs of G.skill DDR2 1333 7-7-7-21 1.5v for $80 and it overclocks better then the more expensive memory that I have bought in the past.I had 6gigs of OCZ DDR3 1600 7-7-7-21 1.64v and it was barley stable at the rated speed,The G.skill 16gig of DDR3 1333 7-7-7-21 will overclock to 1866 just by changeing the timeing.
