Decent memory, not had any of that b4.

I`d kinda liken buying a 2x kit to put in a 3x array `as` equiv to putting a single stick in a 2x array.

So.. with the emphasis of working 1.5v+ for an i7 setup, why sell it as a 2x ? Of course u can buy another stick.. but with all the unquantified differences, ur timings will require the massaging. And not being a kit, performance or compatability not guaranteed.

It`s always greater to have less voltage to work ur ddr3 in a 4 series mobo, as I`m almost sure all the "good" ones have a tremendous range of vdimm. So on the one hand u cut the voltage req to allow i7, and sell as a pair for non i7.

Could well be ofc, that moving forward, it`s just the case that all newer ddr3 they, and others, produce will be ~1.5v as standard.

Nice review, nice sticks.

Nice review as per usual Jimbo. Any idea at all on pricing? I really wouldn't mind cutting over to DDR3 right now if it's not too dear.

Kempez you are right the DDR3 prices are falling and are now justifible to upgrade to and their timings are getting tighter also. Soon I might make the jump, we will see.
