    It's all about the packaging! "Great Skill in Memory World"!! They do look good. Don't like the timings.

    I love G.Skills packaging. "Great Skill in Memory World" Man, it says it all. They do make some great modules. These I have are awesome. They have allowed me to really move beyond spec. Im working towards 2.8Ghz then 3.0Ghz myself.

    If you don't like the timings, underclock to DDR2-800 and CL3 or look for other ram. You're going to have to trade transfer speed for latencies no matter what memory you buy. =/

    Better yet, stop complaining and design your own memory. :laugh:

    Seriously though, you have to choose speed or latency. You can't have both.

    But that's through testing. It's not rated at DDR2-1066 4-4-4. You could probably drive these chips down to DDR2-1066 4-4-4 too, but some people don't want to or don't know how to mess with those settings.
    It's probably the same chips like you say, just different SPDs.
