    I just wish they were higher density, 2gb sticks at 2000mhz and cl8 are nice but 4gb sticks at 2000mhz and cl8 would be much better :D

    Black PCB would have really done these nicely. Either that, or make the radioactive logos green as to match the PCB.

    Heh first time I saw these, I thought about Fallout. And I saw them long time ago, when they released first pieces.. looks like someone had same thinking. :)

    It fits well, just as been said, black PCB FTW. :D

    I think it is time to do away with the green pcb in general. Black, Blue, Red, Purple, Yellow, yeah that is the way to go.

    Clear PCB! With user-swappable LEDs on the ends of each stick.

    Wow, a truly "scientific" glow. From what I recall, they were even marketing radium infused tablets to "invograte" health. Not to get off topic or anything :)

    I know I have seen a pretty sweet S.T.A.L.K.E.R.-themed case mod project at some point. These woulda been absolutely perfect.
