    That PC-9600 is looking quite impressive. If it doesn't cost an arm and a leg, I might get some for my Q9650.

    But since it will, bummer.

    yeah, this will cost much less than Corsair's 16gb kit ($800 way overpriced).

    that 1200mhz kit has pretty good timings w/ that voltages..
    & I think many ppl can still buy this without losing their kidneys :laugh:

    Yeahhhhhh this was what I was waiting for! Now if the 9600 blade would only be under $100.00.... I would get 2 kits, for sure.

    Yeah, but DDR2-1100, check for the price of the DDR2-1200... it just skyrockets..
    $230.00 for DDR2-1200 5-5-5-15 at 2.1v
    So indeed... OCZ doing DDR2-1200 5-5-5-18 at 1.8v is top notch....
    I doubt there will be a better DDR2 stick than that... this probably will be the last great stick of DDR2 era...... Of course, if not tagged on this crazy $230.00, because it just doesn't make any sense not moving to DDR3 (including selling the old and buying new ddr3 mobo) rather than paying that much for an old tec.
    Under $100.00 would be just as fair as it should.

    I tried 2 sets of those. Neither would hit 1200Mhz, no matter how hard I tried.

    I bought the pc2 9200's with the $10 off promo code from newegg.
    The 9600's were sold out.
    But I think they aren't binning too tightly yet so should get 9600 performance since the IC's are the same...we'll see...
