In Reply to: MS are you saying that all 512 MB ram is bad ? posted by Bob

The point is that you cannot really overclock them. Also, you need to watch out that you don't get x4 DIMMs since there are timing issues and VIA doesn't support the x4 DDR at all.

There are only Infineon 32Mx8 chips (256 Mbit) that allow to build 512 (x8) DIMMs and those are th balls.

The Special from Mushkin use IBM DDR chips that don't overclock beyond 154 MHz but run stable at 150 2:2:2.

The unbuffered 512 MB (Infineon) run $177 which is chaep since Infineon charge an arm and a leg for the chips but I have run 3 of those stable on the AK31.
