    Killer deal for those looking for some no frills RAM. I'm trying to avoid buying random cheap stuff off Newegg, but this deal is still extremely tempting.. Maybe if someone wanted to go 50/50 on an 8gb kit :laugh:

    4GB is for spares for my crunchers but it's still 30% off on 1 set ($17.49 w/free shipping) so still not bad :D

    Couldn't resist, bought 8GB. I'll save 4GB for backup like Norton and use the rest in a G530 build I am starting :toast:

    I have this memory in tri channel for my 920. I run it exactly at 1600 9-9-9-24 1.5v as the specs page lists. I tried going to 8-8-8-24 and it worked, but I was getting some quirky issues and went back to 9-9-9-24 (didn't really test it). Not too much to be excited about, it's just memory... DDR3 is already so fast it doesn't really matter.

    If you're in to super high performance cooling, you may not like these. The heatspreaders seem to be thin sheets of sheet metal stuck on with thermal tape. Mostly for looks, I guess... no real heat dissipation there.

    DRAM Prices Expected to Rise, not by huge amounts, but RAM hit its basement earlier this year- it is only going to get more expensive.

    I just hope it's shipping from the NJ warehouse instead of CA. I get items from that warehouse 24 hours after UPS get's it :toast:

    Mine shipped from CA, 2-3 days for me although UPS is more than capable of screwing that up- hopefully yours comes out of NJ.

    Looks like Newegg has pulled the 2+ pricing now on the RAM, so 8gb @ $25.19 is no more.

    Thanks for catching that- I dropped an edit on the 1st post. :shadedshu

    Hoping that a lot of us caught the original deal while it was still active....

    They must have been hit pretty hard with it too.... don't remember seeing the 5 per customer limit before either???

    Mine shipped out of NJ. :toast:

    Don't get me wrong - those 1866 are nice sticks, but they're too much for the kids' rig. Hell, they don't need half of what's in there. Most of it's for my benefit ;)

    I just wish for the 1866 to go to a good home where they can run free!
