a 512 stick is 50 bucks less than pc3200 corsairxms.

I just got mine today. It looks great! Right now I'm at 166fsb (just got a TbB as well), but I'll let you know how it goes. I can tell you this, it looks like its put together well (heat spreaders) and it's shipped in a nice package. More info to come. :)

Hmm

I've been fiddling more, and I've hit a little bit of a barrier. I can get to 169fsb fine, but if I go to 170 and above, nothing. This is puzzling to me, since it does 169 with default voltage, but even at 2.8v, it won't do 170, 171, etc. Makes me think that it may be something in the motherboard and not the memory. I suppose if I tried the UBER bios, I could mess with the northbridge vcore, but I think I will leave things as is. My machine has a nice shot in the arm with these upgrades. So far, my TbB does 1.94ghz on default vcore. :)

well it wasnt my ram. i do have this ram at 157fsb @2.82ghz and running very stable any higher and it gets rocky- ram is at aggressive timings cas2. i guess this chip is gonna keep me at 2.82 :)
