    OCZ or Corsair memory?

    Does anyone have an opinion on which of these 2x2gb DDR2 kits is better:
    http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...odid=MY-086-OC
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-TWIN.../dp/B000Q061WU

    Price is similar (although availability may be an issue with amazon).

    thx

    Given a similar price, I'd go with Corsair.

    Crappy experiences with Corsair XMS brand, Value Select is good but not performance, never had any problems with OCZ, love their XTC Gold and Platinum EPP ram.

    The Corsair looks nicer...... performance difference will be negligable even when overclocked

    Re: OCZ or Corsair memory?

    I use the OCZ Platinum and its FANTASTIC.
    I think the reason alot go for Corsair is because thats really all Scan do. (For some unknown reason which we will never be privvy to).

    I had the same wrestle with this as you and went for the OCZ.

    I like Corsair, but with ALL their products, they only look after the North America market and show little interest in the UK market.(Sorry Yellowbeard...you do your best but its true).
    If they bucked their ideas up i might buy more of their stuff. Until then...no way!


    Just FYI.......Microdirect do the best deals on OCZ....delivery is very fast aswell. I picked up 2x1gb OCZ Platinum PC6400 for under £70 a couple of weeks back.

    http://www.microdirect.co.uk/(16746)...R2-PC6400.aspx

    Its now £50 ...... There isnt better for that price.

    I had planned on getting 2x2gb rather than 4x1gb (as it tends to work better apparently?). I had ordered from amazon but that was 5 weeks ago (they do state 4-6 weeks), but I am getting a bit anxious as to whether they will actually get it in (had previously ordered a book which took them 3 months to deliver!). So I am looking for alternatives as should hopefully have everything together for my new build next week.

    But at that price I am tempted to go for 4x1gb

    Crucial Ballistix PC2-6400 2x1GiB for £52.86 at the moment, direct from crucial. Dpepnding on your other gear, you can potentially run this stuff at 3-3-3-3@800Mhz, 4-4-4-4@1066Mhz and 5-5-5-5 anything up to 1300Mhz, but of course, your mileage may vary

    I only ever buy Corsair - after experiencing their Customer Support for 4 year old RAM that went bad..... they were brilliant!
    Try to make each and every day the best it can be.
