    Depends which board you get, if you get the 680i board, it doesnt matter what ram you get, itll all be unstable I did read that some corsair was having trouble with the 680i, but I cant remember where.

    Take a look at this list here:

    The supertalent is definitely the stuff to go for, Micron D9GMH/GCT/GKX is all very good stuff and you're practically guaranteed to get it if you get the supertalent while the corsair stuff is just luck of the draw.
    D9GMH is usually good for around 1000mhz at cas 4 with enough voltage and cooling.

    Hmm what do you mean luck of the draw? I thought Corsair used those Micron chips for that ram? Is this not the case anymore?

    Well I havent checked since I was looking to purchase but I think they keep changing chip suppliers with each revision, if you take a look at the DDR2 ram list - corsair have made 5 different revisions of that particular type of ram it looks like and only one of those revisions (version 1, the type that goes to reviewers) is Micron D9 stuff, the rest are promos, elpida etc.
