Value 512MB DDR400 Cas 2.5 Memory Shootout: Corsair Vs OCZ
Memory is one of the most important components when are building out a system. You want stability, and some dodgy sticks can ruin your day. Do you have to pay a premium on ultra low timing high clocked memory to get solid performance and stability? Certainly not for DDR400 which has been the standard from JEDEC for longer than I would like to think. There are loads of options for 512MB DDR400 sticks near the $50 mark that will do just fine for many installations, and if you are lucky they just might overclock well past their rated speed.

To test this week picked up a couple of sticks from fierce competitors Corsair and OCZ each for just under $50 to see how they stacked up performance-wise, and with overclocking. Above you can see both come without a fancy heat spreader with the Corsair in its typical retail packaging, and the OCZ in more of an OEM container.
