    Hi,

    I have golden dragon in my opty rig and I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the pc3200 variety. I'm not sure what maximum voltage it will handle or any rough fsb that it will hit if I slacken things off a bit. I'm guessing the ram is pretty old hat now, but is it still worth keeping or should I upgrade to something a little newer and faster?

    Cheers :)

    i thought the Golden Dragon ram was classed as value ram.

    The current stuff might well be, but this is a year or two old now.

    I used to have 2 x 512MB GeIL Golden Dragon PC3200 before I upgraded at the end of last year.

    They were a good set of memory and I had them running happily at 220FSB at default voltage in my P4 system I but never tried to push them further. I do remember reading a review once where the reviewer reckoned he managed to get them to 240FSB.

    I'd suggest that you just experiment, take it slowly and see what results you get. So long as you don't try to put more than 2.9v through them you should be OK.

    Hope this helps :)
