Hmm not much of an overclocker, but green PCB aside they look lush. Great price too

Quick reaction, but this seems a pretty damn good 2nd to the OCZ Blades and I'd have to check the prices but it's a load cheaper aint it ?

Amazing performance for the price. Word I'm not allowed to use ridiculously good.

To be fair to the OCZ, the Blade have dropped too although nowhere near the level of the GSKill. Price is very much based on latency these days and the OCZ is CAS7 vs the CAS9 of the GSkill so the chips used on the OCZ are alot more expensive.

Hard to justify the cost though when the benchmarks don't show such a big difference in performance.

Thanks for the kind comments as always guys.

Very good value that there... I just wish manufacturers would make some black memory with electric blue or something rather than the red that seems to turning up all over the place.

Nice review Rich... With all this Asus hunting going on, I realised you've been writing reviews for a little over a year now! How time flies!
