    Hi , best i get on fsb is 260 which considering they are rated at 250 is a bit disappointing, but as said they do have tighter timings than most.

    Go for the corsair 3500ll sticks (with the black heatspreaders not the platinum ones). They are cheaper than the redlines and nearly all do 238mhz, 2,3,2,5. Mine are doing this at 2.7v

    I can't get the Pro 3500ll stick as my xp90 gets in the way.

    With the money saved you could change coolers - get a ninja or a BT

    I was just wondering what the difference in performance between the black heatspreader ones and platinum ones besides the heat spreader and the led's?

    I was just wondering as I am also considering the mushkin redlines to upgrade from my corsair value select.

    Hi ,there isnt any difference between the black heatspreader ones and platinum ones besides the heat spreader and the led's? same timings so same chips, but the led's are useful when having boot issues.

    the Mushkins are rated at 500Mhz where the corsair are rated at 437Mhz but the Corsair have better timings at stock and AMD boards love tight timings and even when lowering the fsb to 200 the redlines dont like cas 2 so i would opt for the corsair myself even though i have the redlines :( hope this helps

    Thanks for the reply. So it looks like I will get the platinums or the redline's.

    Im not sure if the platinum ones clock as well. They are newer memory sets so not to many people using them yet

    Okay I maaged to pick up a set of muskin reline. As hadrd as I tried the corsair is big in demand and still cost even used.

    I have installed the redline in my PC.

    The timing seems very loose. I am running my PC at stock speed and the only thing I have done so far it set the mem voltage to 2.8v and I set the divider to 250mhz

    According to CPUZ the frequency is 240 and the timings are 3-4-3-10. This si the first time i have used the mushkins.

    Do I have to se the timings maually? What would be a good timing seeming I am an OC noob.

    Something like 3-3-3-8????

    Then I can start to OC my PC again.

    Thanks for the help.
