    I have used 1x4gb stick of this ram in a build for a friend and it worked the same as my G2 Patriot ram. They just put a sticker on it and called it amd.

    I don't get calling it Radeon edition, system memory has nothing to do with your graphics card.

    Actually, they do (in a few select test regions):

    AMD FX-8150 Black Edition CPU Water Cooler Review

    It's an Asetek with an AMD sticker/badge slapped on the waterblock.

    yea the intel one has the word intel in blue glowing on the water block stickers just dont look as nice, what would be nice is the amd logo glowing in red on the block.

    intel processor + amd memory + nvidia card... tutti frutti

    or maybe an intel processor + amd memory + amd card...

    AMD could earn lot of money by selling intel system like these. But What if AMD starts making chipsets for intel processors?
    AMD could also make PSUs but its a market overloaded with more than 15 brands to choose from. Not sure sound cards and nics.
