Sounds like a 2 for here!!!!! You get some nice quality RAM and when they are out dated as all hardware eventually becomes, you can melt them down and make a herringbone chain out them.

Isn't CAS 9 @ DDR3-1333 @ 1.65v standard? Seems like every set on Newegg has close to those numbers. Wouldn't 1.35-1.4v be low voltage?

Actually 9-9-9 @ 667Mhz @ 1.5v is standard. They fail at voltage, being 10% over standard.

They better offer very good prices. G.Skill has their Pi 2x4GB running 6-8-6 @ 800Mhz @ 1.6v if you want slightly over volted performance or their Ripjaws running 9-9-9 @ 800Mhz @ 1.5v as an example of what they will be competing against. The G.Skill Pi is just about the cheapest 2x4GB kit I have seen too.

Looks like they are going to get a few more miles out of those gold plate stamps. Looks just like the ones on my current DDR2's.

Hopefully these will come down in price when I am ready for my Mobo upgrade. Good to know they are coming out with the 4GB ones!

I like G.Skill RipJaws memory myself. It's good performance for a lot less money than most other brands. This is OCZ's real competition.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

I agree Realneil!
 
I have been keeping an eye on the reviews of the Ripjaws, and for the price you get more for your money.
 
I have OCZ's now, and every time I think about it, I just think about the guy behind the curtain in OZ. Who will charge more for less!

OCZ doesn't have good reliability... Go with G.Skill! They are excellent Memory with Low CAS Latency & Timing plus it loads up to 1.5V. Look at newegg.com
