    Who makes the meanest, nastiest, best overclocking DDR sticks around?

    The Mushkin looks great, but the Corsair looks good, and the Kingmax seems to rock and roll too.

    Which is the best PC2700 on the block right now?

    Haven't used it personally, but reviews show Corsair as probably the best out there right now. Fairly cheap as well.

    Ive been doing some research and the Kingmax seems to be the preference among overclockers.

    Also it uses TinyBGA packaging which makes it run alot cooler than some other brands.

    TinyBGA... I agree!

    Kingmax- mine does 2x180MHz at the most aggressive timings. Too bad the rest of my system can't... The ram doesn't even get warm to the touch.

    Tom's Hardware was showing off a stick of CorsairXMS PC-2700 (DDR-333) cas2 (not 2.5). This stuff must hit 400 easy at cas2.5.

    I'm sure it wont be long before Kingmax and the others have PC3000 out too...as OCZ already does have it out. I have heard nothing but good about kingmax...and all the reviews I have seen put those TINY chips above the comp.

    Ive nothing but bad things about OCZ RAM (including their SD-RAM). Like not being able to run at intended speeds, e.g. a PC3000 having to run at CL3 and 266DDR.
