Its prolly because your system is so fast, little to do with the memory, OCZ is a rip off....

Well I purchased the stick from GoogleGear.
OCZ OCZ333512R32 512MB DDR333 PC2700 Rev 3.2 64x64 184 Pin Memory w/Aluminum Heat Spreader Retail
Seems to out perform any other ram I've purchased. Hey, I'm happy with it. Geeze... put up a good score and get dumped on
EDIT: I haven't had any other ram hold up to 1.5 2 2 Cas Timings at almost 400MHz either. They would all run at 2.5 3 3 and never would reach near 400MHz.

No no don't get me wrong, congrats on your high score, but I am saying that, I bet its more to do with your system itself than the ram, tho some people did get good ram from OCZ..

Congrats on the great score!
But i agree with what GB has said, u gotta becarefull with the OCZ stuff, yep some of it is great & can't be beaten. But they have had VERY bad history of not keeping up with their claims of memory speeds etc... & also there has been evidence of very poor working environments. There was a thread about OCZ memory about a year or so ago over at the madonion forums (now futuremark). There were pictures taken of the equipment & the environment the ram chip wer put onto the PCB tested, let me tell ya, the pictures didn't promote a good picture! (The thread has long been deleted by madonion/futuremark, due to threats from OCZ).
But, then again, this was about a year ago, so maybe things on their manufacturing line have improved? only time will tell...
Anyways, congrats on getting some nice scores & ram...

Ive got similar results with similar equipment P4 2.4 @ 3001 with 256megs of OCZ3500---ive purchased from OCZ a few times now without a problem...

Nice scores! I was unaware of there history. So far the ram has performed very nicely. Guess time will tell though as stated above........

I'd say if the ram is performing nicely, then it will stay that way.
But in the past its been pretty hit & miss on whether the stick performs as its rated to (e.g. they sent reviewers top quality stuff, the sent purchasers any o'd stuff & called it top quality, then when it doesnt run at the rated speed, u try to get a rma & they were giving people the run around).
Hopefully from the looks of it they may have cleaned up their act abit, which is all good. Competition is always good no matter what market its in, hopefully if OCZ keeps up the good quality, cosair might notice & they could both start bringing their prices down.... everyone wins! hehe
BTW, i soooooo need (ok, well "want" is probably more correct hehe), to build myself a new PC, wish i had more money to blow on it... oh well, i'll probably be stuck with this rig for another year or so.....
