    single-sided ram?

    i heard a while ago that ram that has all the mem chips on 1 side is suppose to be better quality ram for some reason, anyone heard of this before?

    if there is a difference, what r the pros and cons for double and single coz i got a stick of legend side-sided and a hyundai double-sided

    Now if you were very cynical you could argue the worst chip was on the reverse side, (one of the ones removed), but if you read through the whole article carefully you get the idea MS knows his stuff. Anyone that can and will remove a whole bank of chips from a 256mb Mushkin Rev 2 dimm is insane right?. But if they can prove a point and through that get the makers of Mushkin to take it on board to produce 128mb Rev 3 because of it then???............ well just read it and make your own conclusions

    BladeRunner, nice link. I am currently using 2 Rev3 Muskin 128mb pc133 sticks. Was using 1 generic double sided 128mb pc 133 stick. I record and edit music mostly and I have to say the difference is, well no errors at all yet, 2 days. It all just works better. I like this Muskin.

    Yes good ram is the heart of a stable system especially if you intend to overclock. I do have trouble with mates saying "I can get 256mb for the price of the Mushkin 128". yes I say, but you get what you pay for in life

    I heard a while back that some people perfered one sided ram because it was hitting higher fsb speeds than it's dbl sided match. I have 2 sticks of crucial. One is 128 single sided and the other is 256 double, and both oc great. Had them running stable at cas2 153mhz when I had my duron, an I will see just how high I can get them on my kk266 when it gets put together. I can't recomend www.crucial.com enough. They have free shipping and top quality products. And I believe they also have a lifetime waranty.
