I've used PNY memory, long ago and I wasn't a huge fan of it then. While some of the prices seem nice, I dont get the pc6400 being priced more than the pc8500. That its latencies are so low (3-4-4-8) as opposed to the pc8500 (5-5-5-15) doesnt justify the huge price increase. Also, is it me, or does everyone seem to be following Corsair's design for "new age" heat spreaders?
