WD WD VelociRaptor WD3000GLFSRTL 300GB 10000 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Don't complain you got the better model. Plus the SATA plug-ins are in the wrong place on the GLFS, they can't be swapped out of a HD case and have trouble with operating in RAID. The HLFS is their RAID model.

Average Seek Time 4.2ms

Cons: SSD are taking over mechanical HDs.

OCZ ReaperX HPC 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ2RPX800EB4GK
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: WOW!!!
These bit(hes are advertised at 4-4-3-15 @ 2.1v 800mhz
Well I couldn't get a 3 out of them, best I got was 4-4-4-12 but at only 1.95v 800mhz. So that was good. Same as the 2GB Corsair XMS2 800mhz I replaced with this 4GB set. Same 4-4-4-12 timings BTW.
So because I couldn't get a 3 (all reviewers could?) out of them I went with mhz, I kept the 4-4-4 but upped it to 15 @ 2.1v and got 1066mhz out of them and they can go more but my mother board maxes out at 1066. Now I'm going to do some gaming, COD4, Combat Arms, etc. and put them to the test. Well I tested them for 3 hours with no problems at those settings.

Cons: One of the reasons I went with these sticks was the 3 timing they got with them. Any other sticks with 3 timings are above $200.

Oh well. :~(

GeIL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model GX24GB6400C4UDC
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Worked great for a month.

Cons: After a month I started getting BSOD while starting/playing COD4 and other games so I had to put my Corsair 6400 X2GB back in it and continue playing.
Also had to manually change 800mhz, 4-4-4-12 settings in BIOS on a ASUS mb which normally doesn't need ajustments, especially with EPP for memory .

Other Thoughts: I bought this memory because of all the positive remarks here but my experience with Geil hasn't been a good one.
I didn't even have them OCed, they were fast enough at 800mhz. Oh well.
