2.1 DFI NFII Ulra Infinity. running AMD XP-M 2600.
2.2 DFI NFII Lanparty B Rev. B. running AMD XP-M 2600.
2.3 DFI NF4 SLi-D. Will run AMD A64 3500 San Diego core.

Thank you very much.

All XMS3200XL and XMS4400C25 modules use Samsung TCCD IC's and we use and enhanced version of the Brain Power PCB for XMS4400C25 and have done so since day one with this part.

As far as those systems, these modules would be compatible, but I am not sure the CPU's you have will Over Clock to the frequency needed to run these modules at the rated speed. You might check the S-Spec of the CPU's at www.overclockers.com to be sure.

Hey Ramguy,
I too am considering buying some CORSAIR 550MHZ XMS4400 C2.5, but I want to be sure that these modules contain Samsung TCCD and not TCC5 ICs.

Is there only 1 version / revision of these sticks, if not, what version should I look for to be certain of TCCDs.

That'd be a good piece of info, too. In fact, I wanted to ask you this question but forgot to do so. They just won't allow me to return just because I bought an unwanted revision.

So, how many revision does "XMS4400C25" have and which revision has TCCD ships on Brain Power PCB?

As soon as I get your confirmation info I'll press the ENTER button to make an on-line order.

That's absolutely OK if the pair should run at 260 something.

Not that I think there much difference between Samsung TCCD and TCC5, but I will not buy these sticks until I know which ICs are present in each revision. I know that TCCDs are not produced anymore, so Corsair must be using a different IC or have stopped making this particular DIMM. Ram is too expensive to just go out to the mall and by on the spur of the moment, a little research helps make an informed decision. I'm just about to start upgrading my desktop PC to A64 S939 and if I can't be 100% certain that TwinX1024-4400C25 or CMX512-4400C25 contain TCCD... dam heat spreaders....I will NOT buy them.
My other option is to purchase some G.Skill 4400LE as there are no heat spreaders on this ram, but is a tad more expensive. Anyways I've got to make a decision soon before more local PC shop runs out of stock of G.Skill.

If Ramguy dose not reply and clear up the confusion I will go out buy G.Skill, it really is not worth arguing about to save $20.

CMX512-4400C25 (v1.1 I think)... I removed the heat spreader saw that they were TCC5 and promply sold them on ebay and bought some P Q I Turbo Memory DC PC4000 with TCCDs which did 305MHz @ 2.5, 4, 4, 14.

Good to hear from you. Let's hear from Ram Guy what he has to say. In fact I asked a shop to find out the pricing but have not told them to order a package for me.
