The Patriot Viper Extreme 2GB PC3-15000 kit run at 1866MHz and timings of 8-8-8-24 and while it hasn't appeared on Pricegrabber or NewEgg, some smaller retailers seem to be selling the kit for over $500. Overclockers Online pushed the voltage up to 2.06V and managed several overclocks, some with tighter timings and some with higher frequencies, which they compare performance wise. Along the way they made some interesting discoveries about XMP on the ASUS Maximus Extrem

The Patriot Viper Fin Extreme Latency PC2 6400 run at 800MHz, 3-4-3-8 latencies and 2.3 volts, plus they have a very impressive looking heatsinks. With the low latency that these DIMMs have, they can keep up with the competition, but when they are overclocked their performance really starts to shine. Overclocker's Club hit 1234MHz by reducing the timings to 5-4-4-10, fairly impressive for RAM with a 800MHz stock speed.

Don't let the name Aeneon Xtune DDR3-1333 confuse you, these DIMMs are made by Qimonda, almost as big a name in memory as Micron. Although they are sold at 1333MHz, 8-8-8-15 and 1.5v, they are guaranteed to hit 1500MHz by the manufacturer and Bjorn3D hit 1600 MHz, 9-9-9-24 at 1.9v. It might be hard to justify buying this kit at the same price as a DD

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!
