    Who's selling the tickets??? Where can I buy a front row seat?!

    I've said before this is Corsair pulling a fast one. From the looks of it, it uses Samsung UCCC which has just been binned higher. So basically instead of paying £150, you pay £220 for the higher bin of 275mhz over 250mhz.

    My OCZ does 270mhz memtest stable with 3-3-2-5 so I'm very happy - not that I actually use it.

    Think were all waiting for the 300mhz memory to arrive (in 2x 1gb packs).

    Scales to around 267mhz @ 3.0-3-2-5 shown on XS ;) Uses Infineon CE-5.

    The GSkill also shown on there went to 291mhz @ 3.0-4-4-7. These use Samsung UCCC.

    The Corsair would be best bet for you really, for your X2 4800+. I take it your running the X2 @ 280x10 or 254x11. If your @ 280 then go for the Gskill. Try to lower the timmings, as its shown it can scale high if you loosen the timmings.

    Anyways, its down to user preference, if you want to use a Divider, some do and some dont. Depends what cpu you got. Most of us have dividers as we cant afford / dont want to speed huge amounts of money on a cpu.

    I like to use 1:1 divider if I can but with no having much money on the next build, a cheap Opty 144 / 146 or a X2 3800+ is needed, meaning that I would have to get a divider working if I want the most out of the cpu. Oh well...

    Give it up, just stay quiet in the knowledge of the fact that your 2-2-2-5 is wiping the floor with his 270mhz
