    Ok i just returned some crappy no name 333 ram i got for my EPoX 8K3A+ & have a credit card infront of me :D

    Crucial don't offer PC2700 ram that runs guarenteed at Cas Latency 2, only 2.5

    Corsair do.

    Hmmmm, I need input guy's and gals please.

    It's a very Crucial choice, but I would go with the Corsair.:)

    i have micron sdram... cas2, 7ns... simply the best pc133 memory you can get.

    crucial is micron's value brand. they have great memory (reliability/compatibility-wise) at a decent price, but look elsewhere if you want the best performance.

    I love my strip of crucial, it gives me great results in Sandra for memory bandwidth, I got a score of:
    Int - 2003
    Float - 1909

    Wich is really good :)

    OK I orderd myself some Corsair XMS 3000 as it states it runs a 2-2-2 timing at 166 DRAM Bus, Sounds good to me. :D oh and i got me some of that ere arctic silver 3 gloop as well to see if i shave a degree or two off my cpu temp.
