    I like the little tweaks to the design on the heatspreaders. That's about all I can say until we get a DDR3 Phenom :D

    Ok. again, why is Lexar announcing these? I thought Micron owned crucial or vice versa. Is it now Lexar that owns both or what?

    DDR3 for gamers? ROFL, idiots. Another dumb marketing ploy of "Ooooh look at the speed!".
    With timings of 9, yeah, that's real fast.:banghead:

    "Lexar was acquired by Micron Technology in 2006, and subsequently merged with Crucial Technology under the name Lexar Media, a subsidiary of Micron."

    According to Wikipedia...
