Buffalo Pc3700 w/ Micron Chips......Good Oc'er?
Hey all!! I am looking at getting some memory for a new rig I am setting up and was wondering about some Ram from Newegg.com. It is Buffalo PC3700 with Micron chips. I have read various threads stating that this is cheap ram that Oc's very well. My only question is how do you know what will OC well since stick makers are constantly switching chips (I alreaady know the holy grail of chips are the BH-5's)? I know this PC3700 has a CAS of 3 (which from what I know is not good). Is that not as bad as it looks in the specs considering it is PC3700? This memory would be going into a NF2 board from DFI (NFII Infinity Ultra). I would also like to add that I am not a monster overclocker, but to like to push my system a bit to get addtional perfomance. Please let me know your thoughts. TIA!!
