What memory manufacturers do you use in your machines?
I have used OCZ, Corsair, and Mushkin.
I swear by Corsair and Mushkin, with Mushkin being in my latest Nforce2 rig and it is awesome.
I will stick with Mushkin for the forseeable future!

I've always used crucial..I've got rdram on one pc, so I've been shopping for cheap on ebay..I've still got one rig to max out, maybe I'll go Muskin on that as per ur recommendation :)
Crucial here, never had a problem with it, it's very good. But hey, I'm from Idaho, and so is Micron (Crucial)

I used to use Crucial but the overclocks are not very good and lots of people are getting defective RAM (and I mean lots of people).
The best ones to try out are Twinmoss with Winbond chips or the Corsair XMS, though the XMS is more expensive.

Corsair and Crucial with Corsair being the preference for my main workstation.

I'm using Corsair, Crucial & Twinmos.
Corsair seems best for o/c. Twinmos, imo, a good compromise between price & performance.
Have never had probs with these brands, have had several generic Ram sticks crap out on me several years ago, afore I wised up.

I'm runing Kingmax.. Never had any problems w/ it ^_^; Of course, I don't overclock very much either.

interesting results - was expecting crucial and corsair to be at the top of the list but it seems not much people here use Mushkin memory.
except me and someone else :D

I've always liked Corsair XMS, but I find that Kingston's HyperX is just as good. I have a stick of Corsair XMS (non LL) that used to run 2-2-2-6 @ 200mhz all day. All of the sudden, I began getting errors that was solved by relaxing the settings. :beatsme:
I'm using HyperX in dual bank on my current system and it has no problems with 2-2-2-6 @ 200mhz. So I voted for Kingston.

I've been using Mushkin for 3 years now and I'm glad I spent the extra $ on it. I haven't had any problems with it and it OCs well. I still haven't decided what I'm going to use in the rig I'm starting to build now because I haven't made the decision which platform to go with yet. Currently looking at Corsair and Kingston as a possibility.

mushkin are the same prices as corsair so given the choice I am going to buy mushkin from now on.
09-29-2003, 09:43 PM
Micron or Samsung here.
Yeah, come to think of it, the 512 stick I have in my computer is Crucial, but it has Samsung chips - good memory anyway . . .

you guys realize you can multi select your votes?
Nope. Do now though . . .

I used multi-choice, ticked three.

... but then I usually use whatever the supplier sends. The systems are still out there. ;)

It's only in the last year that we have finally begun to have a worthwhile choice of brandnames in the UK.
Prior to that Crucial and Kingston were the major brands here, but now it's nice to see Corsair at a lot of places. Corsair and Mushkin was available but specially imported one or two OC suppliers and was *very* expensive.
I haven't bought any memory inthe last 12 months or so, but will be trying out corsair next. Prior to now I have always bought Kingston or Crucial. I did buy generic once - it's working fine to this day....

Corsair XMS and Kingston HyperX top my list for buying high-performance ram.
When building a system for someone else that doesn't get top-performance everything, I tend to go with either Crucial or Geil (for the budget systems).

Crucial and Samsung.
Never had a problem with oc's on either. I just prefer the crucial cause of the ease of rma if necessary, not that i've had to.
I don;t go for extreme oc'ing so that tempers the choice.
err well, not of memory anyway :lol:
