    My god, GEiL make TASTY ram indeed and it's even cheap as chips (pun intended) over here in the UK as well! I'd be buying this stuff if I didn't have the new HyperX ELL kit :D

    I was really surprised to see that there were not any heatspreaders on these. I personally consider that a plus though, because there are some very nice aftermarket ones out there now.

    Too bad you would lose the led "eyes", if you can even put a spreader on there with the LEDs sticking out of it.

    Any eta on when these hit the stores?

    These have been for sale for a few weeks in the UK from what I can see! Are they not available stateside?

    Am I the only one that thinks those OCing results are sub-par? These obviously aren't IC's of d9 quality. 2.4V for 1080MHz CAS5 isn't anything to write home about. (If I am, in fact, reading the chart correctly). My Ballistix cost me just about as much (although that's after a MIR), and can do over 1200MHz at 2.4V CAS5.

    If you get some Zalman ram sinks matched with a OCZ XTC cooler these should perform awesome.

    I agree Wile E, obviously not D9 chips. Also, the OC is nothing to write home about. You can get a great set of 2gb 1066 mhz ram for like 70 to 90 bucks. Geil used to be solid, these, Im not too sold on.

    I don't think these are really released with overclocking in mind but attractive, affordable, stable gaming performance. The Golden dragon 1GB kit I had in my Epox board was rock solid, never a single ram issue, or board issue for that matter and both are still going strong in the pc I built for my friend around them! Overclockers UK still have a couple of the pc6400 2GB kits left at <£40 which I consider to be tremendous value for an AM2 system for instance :D

    I'm getting them for my system as I need to replace my current sticks- as a friend is in need of some RAM this Xmas. I;ll give him mine and take these sticks which seem to be a mere £31!

    I just got a set of these in the UK for more or less £50 for 4GB!
    They handle brilliantly with a small overclock, very stable and speed up gametime.
