    As you've got 512 Mb of corsair already installed it would be a good idea to get the same type of memory from any corsair retailer as mixing modules may affect stability.

    hi,

    if you follow the link on the 1st post it should take you to an ebuyer page with it on.

    however if the link is down it is Corsair DDR400 / PC3200, non-ECC, Unbuffered, CL2.5.

    thanks for the help.

    Are you sure? I though there were two types - one with a CAS latency of 3, and one with a CAS latency of 2.5?

    CAS2.5: http://www.tekheads.co.uk/s/product?product=603102

    yea i saw this, but didn't know the timings. i've done a quick google on it and i think it is the 2.5 version.

    does any one know this to be right.

    Cheers for all the help.

    Its labelled as 3 but can run @ 2.5

    Most of my work collegues that have Corsair VS ram all run it at CAS 2.5 on a variety of systems.

    Hope this explains the above comparisons

    Ah, found the answer: http://www.corsairmemory.com/corsair/valueselect.html

    Corsair produces two different versions, just to confuse us

    As for this RAM:http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=48122, the fact that it doesn't have C3 on the end of the product code means that it should be CL2.5.

    Hope this helps

    Mike
