Recently, several big name memory companies have offered new "low-latency" DDR memory modules capable of running with brisk 2-2-2-5 timings at 400MHz.  Based on Samsung's latest low-latency ICs, these chips have demonstrated remarkable stability, compatibility and speed as well as the potential to overclock in excess of 500MHz DDR when relaxed latencies are used. One of the lesser known players in this field is PQI Designs.  Not long ago, PQI acquired PMI Memory, incorporating their Turbo Series brand into the PQI product line.  This has given PQI a much broader product...
