Tomorrow 02/26th is the last day of the sale at Frys.

Frys has 2gb of Corsair Dominator D5 PC2-8500 for $90 with $40 MIR makes it $50 AR. If you can find Rev 1.X then they are Micron IC D9G handpicked chip, yes HANDPICKED and these things are the next best thing to the Crucial Ballistix PC2-5300 667mhz 10th Anniversary Edition. These thing can Overclock to the ROOF. I bought 2 kits so I have 4 gb total, planning to build a desktop with Vista Ultimate 64 bit, just waiting for the newer Intel Quad Core to come out. They still have a lot of older Revision of these kits. Remember, Rev 2.0 and Newer are not Micron D9G. But Frys never had any promotion on these ram and they were over $300 and thus they never sold any and thus still have a lot of old stock left. Therefore you have very high chance to get older REV.

The link was the Sunday ad published in San Jose Mercury News Paper, but I bought the ram at Frys in Las Vegas Area and thus it is nationwide as long as you have Frys in your area. Good Luck Folks

Thanks for the tip gc. I swung by Frys today and grabbed a kit, specifically asked for rev 1.2 and that’s what I got. The quandry I’m in now is trying to decide whether to keep them or ebay them!


#3

should keep them or ebay them if you dont want to keep it. You will not loose money on it. These things can OC to 1200mhz, but you might want to add a fan to it and it can take 2.4V

Thanks Two Degrees, I think I may go by Fry’s in the morning and get 4 GB. Did yours get hot like gc mentioned?


#6

I’m not running them at higher voltages/timings so standard cooling should be fine.

Thanks for the nfo


#8

as long as you keep it under 2.2V without Overclocking, then you dont need a fan. But if you are using 2.2V and higher for to overclock, then a fan will make a big difference in your system stability.

[QUOTE=ghetocowboy;2015637]as long as you keep it under 2.2V without Overclocking, then you dont need a fan…[/QUOTE]Good, good, good advice for Micron D9 ICs. But also remember that it’s not only heat that can kill your mems… pumping 2.4 V through your D9’s is still 2.4 V whether you’ve got active cooling or not. There are dozens of stories of OC’d Micron ICs failing after a few days, weeks, or months of running at higher voltage.

Good point tropic. I will keep that in mind when im am overclocking.

=ghetocowboy these things are the next best thing to the Crucial Ballistix PC2-5300 667mhz 10th Anniversary Edition.

hey gc what kit do you think is better than these Corsair Dominator PC-8500’s?


#12

those Corsair Dominator PC2-9000 that comes with the fan and those CAS 3 PC2-6400 dominator series.

Are the Crucial PC2-8500 as good or better than the Corsair Dominator PC2-8500 1066mhz ?


#14

I would imagine the Ballistix 8500 are just as good as Dominator 8500 Rev 1.2 since both use D9GMH, unless you happen to get some of the newer single-sided Ballistix which use different chips.
