    Been trying to find two more sticks of ram.Ocz pc316000 platinum series ocz3p20004gk at 9-9-9-20 @ 1.9v.Already have two 2gb sticks and thought i'd fill up the two spare slots in my mbOcz have discontinued it and the shop i bought it from no longer stocks it.In fact i cant find any in the uk,hoping someone might have some from a post core i7 build or know of some re e tailer that has some.If not what can i get to best my memory.I understand fthat i could fit other ddr3 ram but I'd ideally like to keep it all the same.Cheers in advance.

    I think you might be out of luck, did a search myself and found quite a few websites listing it but not one had any in stock. The thing is that RAM wouldnt have been used in i7 sockets as the voltage is too high 1.9v to i7's 1.65v so it'll only have been used in AMD systems utilising DDR3 memory which as far as I know, are far and few between.

    Sucks RAM is so expensive at the moment too as buying a new set up to 8GB will likely cost over £200.

    cheers xoner,trawled all over the net myself.Shocked at some of the prices for it,anywhere between £108 to£228:jawdrop:.Bought these last june from microdirect in stockport for £85.So at that price i assume it must have been the last of there stock.There was a seller on sleazebay but they went last month £85 secondhand.as you can see from my avatar my system isn't lacking too much.New to pc building in the last year and still experimenting,just wanted to push it a bit more.Was hoping to carry this ram over to a core i7 build later this year,but as xoner has pointed out the voltages are too high so will hold on to cash.Again cheers xoner you have savedme quite a bit of cash there:thumb:.
