    Corsair better then Micron?
    By Death_Cheese May 19, 2001, 10:54 PM

    I've heard good things about Micron ram. Most people on the forum suggest it, and most hardware sites suggest it. But my friend says Corsair ram is the best ram. Is that right?

    I'd say at stock speeds that no RAM is better than Crucial. Some may be equal, but none is better. For overclocking, Mosel is supposed to be exceptional. There are also some brands of RAM that are designed to run at PC166 Cas2 that should be excellent for overclocking.

    Buy the way Micron is the mother of Crucial. you can't go wrong with Crucial. They have the best prices at this time. I was looking Yesterday, they have a 256mg strip of PC2100 for about $80.00. Man this makes sence to have an extra 256mg stick ready when XP comes out.

    I replaced micron w/corsair of the same specs {cas2, pc133, 128m sticks} and got a perceived increase in performance, quite noticeable to me. I'm very impressed w/corsair.

    Corsair uses Micron memory. Go to www.corsairmicro.com and talk to the "Ram Guy," he'll set you straight.

    I use Mosel and have been very happy with it. The 256MB stick I have uses 7ns memory as opposed to Crucials 7.5ns memory. This means it is PC143 instead of PC133 (eventhough there isn't a PC143 spec).

    Mushkin uses Mosel. nuff said.

    what about for ddr ram.. any faster then usual speeds on ddr ram?

    By AMD Soldier May 20, 2001, 06:39 PM

    Yep my Corair uses Mircon chips on it. Looks just like my Crucial for some unknown reason.
