    Re: Ram Advice

    In theory it should be, but if it's that really cheap looking stuff I would be a bit nervous and probably just buy the corsair lol

    Re: Ram Advice

    Yeah thats teh stuff I thought. I'm sure it's fine but I'd spend the extra on corsair. It's often on today only for £55 anyway.

    Re: Ram Advice

    I think the Super Talent will do just fine, they're a Japanese brand that's not very well known but many of their RAM have received praise. Super Talent is a brand much like Mushkin, Geil and G.Skill; they have hardcore followings. Corsair are simply more well known (maybe for a reason ). It is certainly not unbranded value RAM.

    The standard heat spreader xms2 is £56 at the dreaded OCUK but you would need to add delivery.
