Very good ram. Uses the same chips as Corsair and is said to be oc friendly.

I would stay away from Kingston. Bought a pair of 256 PC3500 HyperX to go along with my 2500+ barton OC'd to 3200+ on my Epox 8RDA+ and I could not get the mem to run at 400 FSB along with the cpu, would only do 333. Checked various forums and saw lotsa people having the same prob. Called Kingston, keeping in mind that 3500 is SUPPOSED to run at 434. Their response was that on my board the mem is only rated at 333 !!!! Well where the hell does it say that on the box or their website??? Heck, the buffalo is cheaper anyway. Can't go wrong at these prices.

hard core cooling has some pc3200 cas2.0 ram that uses winbond chips. i use them and know a bunch of others that do and its great ram; ocs and performs better than corsair in almost everyones experience. right now the 512 price is up to $100, but ive seen it as low at $70 and picked up my sticks at $75 each. http://www.hardcorecooling.us/product.asp?0=200&1=201&3=199

I stumbled accross hardcorecooling.com while I was searching for the right memory for my board. It appears that in the past they had some "mislabled" chips, i.e. oc'd pc2700 sold as pc3200, which they blamed on their distributor. Since my 8RDA+ is particular about the memory in it, I felt the best price/performance along with the reliability of Newegg made the Buffalo chips the best deal.
