    i found an intersting read over at legit reviews, its an interesting read on the 1.65v RAM issue with the new core i7's comming out and just thought i would share it with you all

    my thought on the 1.65v spec is that intel has come out the the 1.6/1.65v on the mem controler because it is the default memory voltage for ddr3 and wouldnt want to promote any hardware running over its designed speeds/volts (not saying that the option isnt there tho, and it would be do so at your own risk)

    i have been looking into the tri-channel kits from a-data and thinking what overkill of 12 gig of 1600mhz ddr3 would be :) (tri-channel 6 gig kit X 2)
    http://oc.adata.com.tw/product-series.asp?sid=03

    it would be good to know wich type set up gives the the 38BG of bandwith we see and if it was the 1333 or 1600 mhz kits (not saying it was a A-Data kit they used to get the 38GB of bandwith)

    for example

    1gx X 3 = 3 gb
    2gb x 3 = 6 gb

    1gb x 3 X 2 = 6 gig
    2gb x 3 X 2 = 12 gig

    i guess only time will tell
