    Tccd

    I dont know what TCCD is but i no it is supposed to be better.
    Are these
    TCCD?
    If not is there much difference.

    There are many on overclockers.co.uk
    Corsair 1GB DDR XMS3200C2 Pro TwinX (2x512MB) CAS2 (MY-026-CS) for £105, but I really doubt that is TCCD.
    What other TCCD modules are there, cheap? (2x512 matched)
    Thanks
    PS - (I prob wont be ordering this week so the "this week only" prices prob wont count for me.)

    I've been keeping my eye on the BH5 mentioned in this thread, meant to be pretty good and it seems very cheap but seems to overclock really well..http://forums.hexus.net/showthread.p...&highlight=bh5

    Well at the moment the Crucial stuff looks good cause its cheap but reliable, and will overclock.
    What is TCCD, TCC5 BH-5
    I DONT GET IT!
    Which one is better, and better in what respects?
    thanks

    That crucial is TCCD.

    BH-5 will do tight timings at higher clock speeds than TCCD, but it needs ALOT of voltage to do it.

    If you only have 2.8-2.9v available, TCCD is probbaly the better choice. If you can put around 3.3v through your memory, BH-5 will probbaly perfrom better.

    It the model of the actual memory chips on the module, TCCD, TCC5 or BH-5, as for whats better it seems there are many opinions

    TCCD chips are basically samsung modules that are excellent low latency modules, but they are actually DDR500 modules that have been found to run at PC3200 speeds with extremely low latencies.

    At the moment Corsair have the only agreement signed with samsung for the exclusive supply of whatever is left of these memory chips and these are mainly used in the TwinX-XL range of memory.

    Hope this info helps

    People have bought them and ripped the headspreaders off.

    Look up reviews on that memory.

    Oh, I see, So its only the Samsung modules.
    So what is the Micron (Crucial) stuff like? How is it different to the normal crucial stuff? Appart from the heat spreaders etc.
    Is the ballistix the best for around £120??
    The only other stuff have looked at is the corsair stuff, but in another thread it says it has not got such a low latency rating with AMD CPUs
    Thanks

    I've got 1 Gb of twinX-XL PRO running @ 5.2.2.2 with my 3500+ on stock speeds so they can run low latency you just need to TELL it to do

    Not only samsung modules use TCCD chips - many other manufacturers such as corsair, GEIL, patriot etc. do as well. Ballistix uses micron chips coz crucial is part of micron.

    Not sure if it's the best for ~£120, you'll have to research that. My stuff is pretty good tho. Currently doing 246mhz, can't remember the timings.

    It's differnt from normal crucial stuff coz it can run at higher frequencies/ lower latencies.

    the companys like corsiar use the samsung ram to make thier own ram

    I think the Crucial stuff is the best for me.

    It would also help if you could say would platform/motherboard it's going into & what you want to do with it, i.e. go for the highest overclock possible or not so high overclock but lowest/tightest ram timings possible.

    Amd 3500+ DFI Nforce ultra, you can see the rest by going onto my site
    www.nvening.co.uk and clicking on my pc
    I wont be overclocking much, so tighter timings would be good, but i would like the potential for doing so in the future.
