    It will be reasonable, give or take $5. I'm expecting it to be priced <$70 (the 2x 2GB kit).

    sounds very good. Most of the good ddr3 kits are tri channels.

    Meh, didn't OCZ did something similar?
    What's the point of announcing this without stecs of speed and latency?

    funny how adding the words "Black Edition" or "________ Edition" will increase sales by at least 45%.

    True that, just wondering to compare it to other brands is all, if its just as good but cheaper then it would be a good buy.

    Another gimmick.

    Remember the OCZ ATI CrossFire Certified Edition Ram.

    They look good but i don't think they'll make much of a difference.

    These are not a gimmick like that stuff. This new label just means that it already has a AMD OverDrive Black Memory Profile. That would allow you to get the most out of your RAM with the click of two buttons.

    actually the OCZ AMD edition ram clocked better on AMD platforms than the same rated platinums did

    That being a fact, it still has everything to do with the RAM and nothing to do with Crossfire. Good to know though, thanks for the info. I won't be so quick to dismiss "Certified" RAM when shopping.
