    Memory Shootout - Extremely High Performance DDR using Samsung TCCD DRAMs

    Ryszard has written an article with such a detailed title that it won't fit in the VBulletin subject field, so here's title and quote in all its glory:

    Memory Shootout - Extremely High Performance DDR using Samsung TCCD DRAMs on Socket 939 AMD64
    To sum up, if you want the coolest modules on the block and you're feeling flush, the Corsair Xpert is in a niche of its own. Paired with Samsung's TCCD modules, there's a world of performance to be had from them at modest Vdimm. Otherwise, the G.Skill and OCZ both come recommended at around the £200 mark, with Corsair's XL PRO and XL PT under that price, too.

    Nice review but it's a shame that Samsung TCCD chips are apparently no longer being produced either now, so supplies could be drying up in the near future if reports are correct.

    it would be great if you could add, ocz vx to the comparison, and give its max at 2-2-2-5 and at any latency, something which hasnt been done, on the same board and what its max mhz is.

    I understood that they were still being made in limited volume & that Corsair had an exclusive contract to buy the lot?

    Were these running 'to hot to touch' ? I'm a little concerned about the size of the overhang on the corsair modules - could be blocking off airflow for the high end clocks?

    What happened to the Patriot XBLK PC3200 TCCD RAM???

    I would have liked to see this RAM in the shootout! Just to see how this RAM compares to the others in the group.

    The reason for asking was that it is supposedly very high performance RAM and i have some, it is also relatively cheap (and guaranteed to run at 533 PC4200 at quite tight settings). You can pick up these for about £150 plus postage atm!

    Yep I have two sets of Patriot XBLK memory, I know one set will do 290fsb at least, the other set I've not test yet as it's just come back from being rma'd.
