    tri channel kit same one I linked, but yes I am only running in dual channel, which may have a bit to do with my OC. I still lean to the Tridents, unless you have seen better numbers on the tri channel comparison sheets.

    donate me an i7 and mobo? even for a couple days? :roll:

    I would love to see what they can do there too. I do remember seeing a ton of screen shots on this ram, both tri and dual channel, but I will have to ask Cold Storm for the links. I will just say this, it was impressive on both sides.

    BTW....2100 CAS9 http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/foru...6000-cl9-tri-channel-memory-kit-review-6.html

    2100 CAS8 http://www.erodov.com/forums/erodov...r3-f3-12800cl6t-6gbtd-review/25970-page7.html

    Found cold storms link....http://i4memory.com/f83/6gb-gskill-trident-f3-16000cl9t-6gbtd-preliminary-test-results-19504/ is that 2266mhz I see in Tri channel and 2000mhz at CAS7??

    Hope you didn't pay the $349 price on that 920 box. Currently $199 at Microcenter.
