 Kingston's PC2-9600 DDR2 (1200MHz) kit runs 5-5-5-15 timings at 2.3V and is just begging to be pushed farther.  Big Bruin had no troubles using this RAM to push an E6850 to 400Mhz with a FSB:DRAM ratio of 5:8.  Considering how cheap these modules are, if you even suspect your RAM is holding back a better overclock, you might want to invest in this kit.

US Modular is far better known for portable storage, usually flash based, but they are moving in to the field of DDR2.  The first module up for review is the 2Gb dual channel Cold Fusion DDR2-800 kit, which runs at 4-12-4-4 at 2V.  The Tech Lounge was shocked to see it beating out DIMMs from Corsair and other big names, but this kit has an Achilles' Heel, it does not overclock well.  The other problem is that it doesn't seem to be for sale anywhere.

If you were curious what Fred Weber is up to these days, as the former CTO of AMD, look no further than to a company called MetaRam that is promising 4x the current capacity of memory modules with little to no price hike or performance penalty.  According to this engadget post, MetaRam "uses a specialized "MetaSDRAM" chipset that effectively bonds and
addresses four cheap 1Gb DRAM chips as one, tricking any machine's
memory controller into using it as a 4x capacity DIMM."
