    Are the Kingston and Corsair Value RAM any good?

    I was looking at the CORSAIR 512MB PC3200 VALUE SELECT on newegg for $73.

    I don't know about corsair but for the kingston valueram, beware of compatibility issue. No doubt when it does works it works great but be very careful....

    I have since learn not to go for low quality value rams but instead get quality RAM so I have less headache down the road.

    if you get the kingston ram with hynix chips, beware..

    the Infineon stuff works great, but the rest is poo
    The hynix module i received cannot run at 166 on an 8rda+ and i am in the process of RMA ing it (they say this is a known issue and are being VERY nice about it.. A+ to kingston) for a compatible chip.

    The chip works very well on my gigabyte board and at 133 speed - it just cannot run full speed on a nforce2.. overall i would buy it again, if compatibility was assured.
    as for corsair value, i have no idea..
