    Probably not long, seeing as how the Lanfest stuff went quickly.

    Nice review :toast:

    I'll actually ask my contact at Crucial about that as I was unclear on that as well, the only thing that leads me to believe these are limited edition is Newegg's comment:
    But I'm wondering if that simply means that they are a Newegg Exclusive for a limited time? lol that'd be good wordplay if so ;)

    funny thing is that's even good for 1 GB modules that are rated at 800 MHz and CL4, let alone 2 GB modules

    yep sorry mussels, the only way would be to physically desolder the LEDs from the PCB, which I expect wouldn't be too difficult
    but let me also say that the pictures exaggerate gawdiness of the LEDs lol, in anything other than pitch black they're a very manageable brightness

    i agree with u on that because the pics i posted reflect too much light form them but in reality the little red leds are like moving dots no even close to overexposed brightness like in the pic , plus i also used contrast on the pics before posting cause i took the pics in the dark =)
