    It can take 2.4 volts w/o heatspreaders? Even 2.0 w/o heatspreaders imo is high

    Heard they run pretty good, and the heatspreaders cool very well too but too pricey. You can get DDR2 1066 2x2gb rams for much cheaper.

    Some good kits can handle 2.2V w/o heatspreaders, and look at the reviews, not a lot mentioned it runs hot.
