What memory do people recommend for a Asus TUSL-2 with a Pentium 3 866? Look at stability as number 1.


Thanks,

Hi Jym:


___Can you please lurk for a bit before asking questions like this? Do a search for “Best in Class†and it will lead you directly to the most stable SDRAM you can own on that platform and for a price that is pretty amazing as well. Please make sure you only purchase from Crucial as Micron on thirds which is what everybody else sells is of lower quality.


___Good Luck

Crucial will work fine, and is by far the most economical memory that's stable on the CUSL2. However, for the record, the MOST stable RAM for the CUSL2 has been and remains Mushkin REV2 ( www.mushkin.com ).


It's impossible to justify the Mushkin price for a HTPC which is never going to be overclocked (heck, mine is UNDERclocked to run without a fan), but if you're talking about a non-HTPC system that you want the best performance from, Mushkin REV2 is the absolutely the finest.

Hi KC:


___Except for possibly the latest Rev 3+, the Rev 3 std.’s on down are the same performance or less of every Crucial CAS2 PC133 I have ever used. Having gone through at least a hundred sticks of CAS2 PC133 at 150 MHz CAS2 on multitudes of ASUS CUSL2’s using 800EB’s to 900 MHz without failure, the CAS2 at 150 MHz is a given from any PC133 CAS DIMM ordered directly from Crucial. I used to purchase Mushkin before PC133 was even available in the form of Samsung GH on Samsung PCB’s myself until I received everything I needed at even less cost from the Micron built PC133 CAS2 SDRAM DIMM’s directly. Not only have I received all the performance of the Mushkin parts, but I have received better prices and the Free shipping on an almost continuous basis is a gift that keeps on giving.


___Good Luck
