    I just got it in today at work, when I get home and throw it in my machine I'll let you guys know how it is. Only cost $73.98 shipped at Newegg. I bought the 2x1gb DDR2-800 kit. Runs at 1.8v and 4-4-4-12 timings. People have this stuff OC'd past the DDR2-1066 range. If this RAM runs good you bet I'm ordering another 2gb worth :) I know that the Crucial is cheaper after rebate and such, but I like the low voltage requirements of this RAM as well as its looks. It looks real nice!

    Ok, after some testing here are the results:

    Stable OC:
    450mhz (900mhz DDR2) at 4-5-5-15 2T timings.

    Highest OC:
    466mhz (932mhz DDR2) at 4-5-5-15 2T timings.

    466mhz was the highest I could boot into windows with. Even at 457mhz Orthos would report memory errors. However, I do not think this is memory related, but rather Motherboard/PSU related. My PSU is not of the best quality and can't handle much in the overclock department. Also, my motherboard doesn't have the best BIOS revision and frankly, I'm too lazy to try to flash it to an older version. I've seen several people hit DDR2-1066 with this RAM. Keep in mind, the numbers I listed were at the stock voltages of 1.8v. I could raise the MCH and DDR2 volts but I like to keep my system running cool :) When I buy my MSI P6N Platinum (unless something better that can do SLI with 8800GT's and overclock a quad-core comes out) I'm sure I can OC this RAM higher. Right now the CPU is running at 3.15ghz stable.

    Here are some numbers from Everest Ultimate:
    Memory Read: 7469 Mb/s
    Memory Write: 8083 Mb/s
    Memory Copy: 6490 Mb/s
    Memory Latency: 70.3 ns
