Pretty cheap, with heatspreaders too
Nice dude! The CAS latency is kind of weird (2-6-3-3) but that's a really good deal for trusted memory of that quantity w/ low latency. Usually this cheap memory has DD2 style latency like 3-4-4-8 or something like that.
Just to tell you guys that its Geil Ultra and it's NOT capable of 2-6-3-3
The website has specified the information wrongly:
it should be listed as: 2-3-3-6 not 2-6-3-3 as the way timings are "written down" are always in the same order, as to not confuse people.
I had this memory, and i've tried it in an Nforce 4 board & my Abit AV8 939 board and it WILL not do Cas 2, it will do 2.5-3-3-6 but even if i cranked the voltage up to 3.0V it wouldn't make it even in an Nforce 4 board.
Oh it will do 3-4-4-8 @ PC4400 (277MHz FSB) - i actually got it to run @ 2.5-4-4-8 which is slgihtly better.
Also, the only memory Geil do that does Cas 2 is their Ultra-X range, which ALL do: 2-2-2-5 out of the box @ PC3200.
fry's is a whorehouse.
