    yes, please provide link. if it's what i think it is, it's actaully high/crappy latency and nothing more than the cheap value ram with a colorful heatspreader.

    the patriot viper or extreme performance is the way to go...

    will i notice a difference in performance going to a better quality of ram than I have now? Or will it be money not well spent? Iam kinda at my limits for o/cing because of my ram, unless I lower the speed right down, right now its at 1033 and pretty well max for that ,I could lower it too lets say 899 or somethng like that but then I thought iam loseing out that way by doing that? Iam kinda leaning towards the patriot gamers,, from reviews they sounded alrigth, voltages are high though, I dont know if that matters or not, My elpidas have a 1.5v but i needed to crank them up to 1.62 for stability, any other thoughts?
