lycium Posted December 15, 2005 Share Posted December 15, 2005 Hi everyone :) I've just bought two sticks of CMX512-3200C2PT Corsair XMS, with the intention of running it on an ASUS A8N-E and Athlon X2 4400+. I've heard that Corsair memory overclocks well, and to this end I went with the ~$300 worth of "gaming memory" (as my supplier listed it) rather than the Value Select. After scouring the IC list the closest match I could find for my memory (says 0537038-0 and is v5.2) is the following: CMX512 3200C2PT 3202v5.2 0530088-0 = Promos -5 Rev A* This is 7 weeks before my mem, so can I hope that my mem is revision A* and not A? Is there a noticable difference between the two? The only info I was able to find on the net about these chips indicated (hardly a reputable source though) that other vendors use them in their value memory :/ Indeed I was somewhat disappointed when I read on the Corsair page that the mem runs at CAS 2.5 on AMD systems, 2.0 on Intels. I haven't opened the boxes yet (still waiting on the ASUS board) so if this is true and they don't overclock decently I'll probably be looking to sell them locally as they cost an absolute fortune here (don't get me started on the joys of living in a 3rd world country...) relative to other available value memory. So basically I have three questions: 1. How far do these chips usually overclock? At CAS 2.5 there's not a lot of room for relaxing timings at higher clocks, and CAS 3 is kinda lacklustre for $300 worth of memory :/ 2. Are they really CAS 2.5? I read elsewhere on this forum that I should set the CAS to 2 (link: http://www.houseofhelp.com/v3/showpost.php?p=227179&postcount=2) 3. Is the memory revision A* or A? Thanks for your time, much appreciated! :) Thomas Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
