5 out of 5 eggsIt is what it is

Pros: This memory runs fine at the stated specifications (200 Mhz, 2.7V, 2.5-3-3-6). Popped in the memory and tested using Memtest86+ overnight with no errors at spec.

When overclocking, it appears that milage will vary, and is probably a result of the specific environment created by the motherboard, processor, and memory. In my case, I am using this memory with the ASRock 775I65G R3.0 motherboard (865G Northbridge), and a Pentium Dual Core E5800. I have seen the following results:

1) When first testing memory settings with Memtest86+, using the "High" memory voltage setting (2.7V) and 2.5-3-3-6 timings in the Bios, I found that I started getting first pass errors at 227 mhz. I settled on 225 mhz to attempt to test using a Prime95 torture test in Windows XP. Prime 95 test failed within 10 min! I then restarted the Prime 95 test using 220 mhz and I ended it after it ran for over an hour with no problems.

2) I then checked to see if the timings could be tightened. Found out that the computer would not even POST when CAS is lowered to 2 at stock 200 mhz on the 2.7V setting. My motherboard cannot set the voltage higher than that, so I gave up on that project...

3) After playing with various iterations of timings and hi/low voltages, I settled with the 220 mhz speed (DDR 440, PC 3500) at stock 2.5-3-3-6 timings on the motherboard "High" (2.7V) setting. I had found that
loosening timings did not allow me to run at higher frequencies without showing errors in Memtest86+.

4) My observation is the same as several others: That higher voltage doesn't appear to scale up the CAS or allow a huge overclock. It appears that the RAM is simply a quality, lower CAS DDR 400 RAM without much hope to go significantly faster than that.

Again, I stress that this is MY experience on MY hardware combination. I have no doubts that other people with different hardware are seeing 233 mhz (DDR 466), 250 mhz (DDR 500), and higher stable overclocks.

Cons: If your memory runs fine at the stated specs, then how can there be any cons?

Other Thoughts: Chose this memory after deciding to build a new computer that could still run a Windows 9X operating system that I dubbed "Old Gamer". The idea for this project came as a result of my not being able to run old X-wing and Tie Fighter space combat simulation games in Windows XP or Windows 7. These games were improved ports of the DOS versions and specified Windows 95/98 as the required operating systems. Attempts to get them to run on higher Windows had failed, even when using the correct Windows compatibility settings.

My goal was to build the most powerful system I could that would support Windows ME, and I stumbled on the ASRock 775I65G R3.0 motherboard (still offered by Newegg as of this date), which is a socket 775, 865G
chipset motherboard supporting up to 2GB of DDR memory and is able to run most Wolfdale 800fsb/1066fsb processors as well as all the 800fsb/1066fsb Kentsfield and Conroe processors. To be able to run 1066 fsb
processors, an AGP card must be used, as well as DDR 400 memory that MUST have a 2.5 or lower CAS latency. This was the only 2GB DDR memory set that fit the bill, so I purchased it. The result is a computer that screams when running any game produced between 1995 - 2005, and when using Dosbox, can effectively play 20 years' worth of old games!

The computer specs:

1) ASRock 775I65G R3.0 Motherboard
2) Intel Pentium Dual Core E5800 (3.2Ghz, 800fsb, 2MB L2 Cache)
3) 2GB G.Skill DDR 400 CL2.5 (Model "F1-3200PHU2-2GBNS", sold at Newegg and requires higher voltage to run)
4) Nvidia Geforce 6800GS (the highest level video card officially supported with Windows 98/ME drivers that would work well with the motherboard)
5) LG DVD-RW SATA Optical Drive
6) 80 GB Samsung SATA HD
7) 160 GB Western Digital SATA HD
8) Generic Floppy Drive (still needed for installing Windows 98/ME)
9) Inland Gold 500W Power Supply
10) MSI S-8810 Case
11) Triple booting into Windows ME/ Windows XP SP3 / Windows 8.1

I hope I helped someone make a purchase decision.

Pros: The RAM speed exceeded expectations. Motherboard recognized RAM without any conflicts. Dell Dimension 2400 is approximately 5 times faster than with previous 2 sticks of 256 MB, not sure speed of replaced RAM.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: They work! I popped these in on an Asus K8S-LA motherboard (Socket 754, AMD Athlon 64 3200+ @ 2.2 GHz) and they run just fine. I already had two 1GB sticks running at 3 CAS instead of 2.5 so the increase in performance wasn't that noticeable, if at all. I ran Memtest on them with no errors. At this point the system is about 8 years old but with a discrete AMD HD 3650 AGP graphics card and 2 x 1 TB SATA hard drives, the system runs 32-bit Windows 7 and 64-bit Ubuntu 13.04 like a hot knife through butter.

Some of the reviews here caution that you shouldn't buy these sticks if you have an HP, Dell, etc. because you may not be able to change voltage settings in the BIOS to accomodate the increase in power the sticks require. It may be true that you cannot change the BIOS settings because the manufacturers locked down the settings to make only the basics adjustable. That is true of my motherboard, actually. I bought it as a Compaq but have since upgraded everything but the motherboard and optical drive. These sticks of RAM work anyway in spite of me not even being able to see voltage settings in the BIOS. So if you're on the fence and are holding back because you think you can't change voltage settings either, I think it's worth the shot. Your motherboard may increase the voltage on its own, like mine apparently does in spite of being a former Compaq. I think the worst that can happen if the sticks don't work is an unstable system that will crash (if you even make it past POST) on you when the sticks try to pull more power but can't access it (some reviews here indicate that). They're not going to fry your motherboard if they can't draw 2.75V.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Ordered on a Friday morning, arrived on a Saturday(!) morning. Those of us in southern California are so lucky Newegg is nearby.

5 out of 5 eggs2GB's in LC'd ABIT NF7-S ver. 2.0

Pros: Excellent Memory... G.Skill always has been. Have had this set of 2GB's PC3200 in my LC'd ABIT NF7-S ver. 2.0 board for over 7 yrs. OC'd to 460MHz on 2.7v and they are still "Cool" to the touch.. extremely Nice heat sinks, match the board, VGA card and tubing perfectly... Red, yah! I want Red... there's no substitute for Red! Red, yah! Paint it Red... Green ain't Mean compared to Red!

Still has my old, OC'd - unlocked AXDA2600DKV3C socket 462 (0319) in it (removed old Arctic Silver & replaced with Shin Etsu X23-7783D TIM and dropped all temps 5c in LC'ing loop.

Cons: Cons... ...what...?

Other Thoughts: If any Member/Customer/User of ANY G.Skill memory modules are having issues, then they aren't wearing anti-static wristbands, are lacking in knowledge of Motherboard cpu/memory frequency settings, are attempting to use memory which is Not Compatible with their system, or possibly have received a bad module - not uncommon in All Of The Above. Hey, don't rate your "Tech Knowledge" in the same manor you do research before buying!
