Unless you plan to run a higher ratio that 1:1 (which is a good idea, don't get me wrong), you technically only need something that does DDR2-890, which means pretty much any decent DDR2-800 kit.

But that said, 5:6 (DDR2-1068) or 4:5 (DDR2-1113) would be nice :)

Oh, & btw, get the Mushkin.

I was running my old Corsair XMS2 DDR-2 667 @ 800 4-4-4-12 for over a year 24/7 and not a single problem. My new DHX 4GB can easily do 1066, I haven't tried more but it does it ! :D
BTW, does Mushkin use Mt chipsets ?

We haven't disclosed chips used since we were first with 2x2GB overclocking kits in jan 07 based on micron d9's.
I personally don't even know, I can guess pretty well, isn't many choices.

2x1GB is obviously different for overclocking, we had many d9 based kits. But those are discontinued.

No, most micron d9's are eol, we have no micron based overclocking kits I know of that are not discontinued

If I'm correct EOL stands for "End Of Life" which basically means it has been taken out of the production line and will no longer be made.

I bought Ascent because of Greg being here & NCIX. Have only owned them for 24 hours so far but like them a lot - and man they're heavy compared to normal DDR2 ... but so beautiful.
