hi

I have the option of the following 667mhz Ram's to use with my e4300 system soon

all are 2GB kits
Prices are in AUS
These are all the store has
A-Data 667 - 304$ (I like this because it has a nice looking red heat spreader) :p
Kingston 667 - 308$
Samsung 667 - 295$
Corsair Value 667 - 332$
OCZ Gold 675 - 330$

I wont be overclocking at first(CPU to 3ghz, so ram is only 667) but will push it a little further once I get a better cooler down the track

I know I wont need really high clocks with the e4300 but lets just say I had an e6300 and if I wanted to OC how high would all these get?
will they all reach over 800mhz?

which would be the best and why?
is it worth the extra $$$ for the Corsair/OCZ?

Thanks!

Links Help...............
Folks would need to do lots of work to lookup and compare the various memory sets.

All in All, it likely does not matter too much.
If any of those RAM chips only require 1.8v I would consider that to lessen motherboard compatibility issues since some boards may otherwise need some bootstrap ram to let you startup the PC and adjust the bios for higher voltage ram.

I would personally go for kingston it sounds like a good value! You could hit 400mhz on all of those ram choices with the proper timing re-configs and all that b.s. If your looking to go higher than 400 i would get a faster ram. I'm running a e6600 with a 680i mobo and 667 ram and i have them all running @ 1333 perfect 1:1 ratio so the 667 ram is good for me right now!!! But in the future i would be upgrading to faster ram for more of an OC

Stick with 667 if your not planning on going nuts on O/C
