Depending on the type of memory that the VIA Isaiah will be able to use, the Super Talent Project X 2x1GB PC3-14400
may be a great match. It runs at 1800MHz, with 7-7-7-21 timings and draws only 2v, fairly low for the speed offered, and uses large passive heatsinks to keep it cool. Of course, you can't expect Overclockers Online to leave these DIMMs at stock speeds, 920MHz was the top speed they hit at default timings, but they also relaxed the timings and topped the board out, while using

The newest in DDR2 is the OCZ PC2-6400 ReaperX HPC Enhanced Bandwidth 4GB Dual Channel kit shows the exact reason DDR2 is still going to be popular for a while. This pair of 800MHz, 4-4-3-15 timed 2GB DIMMs can be yours for $150 at NewEgg. When Overclock3D tested out the overclocking ability, the heatpipes helped them to hit DDR2-1100 speeds, and they only had to up the voltage to 2.1v, so the DIMMs are still under warantee.

PC2 9384 translates into DDR2-1173, or an actual speed of 586MHz. If your board can handle that FSB, the fairly low timings of 5-5-5-15 will help to speed up your system, and as the warranty will still cover you at 2.2V, you should be able to get some overclocking out of these DIMMs. TweakTown had difficulties finding a board that could keep up with

Crucial's Ballistix PC3-12800 CL8 BL2KIT12864BA1608 DDR3 1600MHz 2x1GB RAM has a really long name to remember when you try to buy some, but it is worth doing. Not only does the stock speeds and latency offer some incredible performance, Benchmark Reviews managed to push the RAM to 1825MHz. The lack of XMP support is this kits bigg
Introduction to Domination
Corsair shows us another DDR3 Dominator installment: this time using Intel Extreme Memory Profiles to overclock to 1800 MHz on a CAS 7 latency. Sure DDR3 is still expensive, but now it's also fast and easy to overclock!

Patriot's Extreme Performance 2GB PC2-9600 DDR2-1200MHz seems to be running as fast as it can go on it's factory defaults. No matter what Overclockers Club tried, they could not get the DIMMs to be stable at even a 5MHz frequency bump. That's not to say you shouldn't consider this RAM, it's EPP function worked perfectly on the 680i motherboard t

DDR3 is getting faster, and now that we are seeing DIMMs reaching the 1800MHz range, most boards actually need to be overclocked to reach those speeds. Without one of the more overclocking friendly boards, you probably won't be able to hit full speed. X-bit Labs had the chance to try two new modules, and contrast them to the three they have previously seen in the same speed range with a little help from an X38 board.
