    Not bad. The 2GB sticks are finally starting to scale better.

    Id love to get these for my new Phenom Mobo and see how far they clock. Price should be great, considering the prices of 2gb and 4gb ddr2 kits here lately.

    Aren't 2GB sticks supposed to require less volts vs 1GB sticks? Could be wrong as the source was somewhat unreliable.

    to be honest, Im not really sure. Alot of the new memory techs (ddr2 and ddr3) are supposed to require less voltage, but all the kits coming out are mainly for enthusiasts, which are preclocked. This means they require more voltage. DDr3 is supposed to hold solid with 1.5v I believe, but almost all kits out are in the 1.8v+

    No. Your source is thinking of DDR3 vs DDR2. The bigger the capacity, the more power required, if all else is equal.

    If you mean PCB-s with new new memory chips like 70nm Elpida (8x-E) DDR2 or upcoming from other manufacturers - Yes when comparing to old ones. They can be overclocked on default voltage 1.8V with minimal heat dispersion.
