    These would go well with a DFI UT X48 or a similar schemed board.

    Bloody is!

    DDR3 for me is all about the timings and most importantly the voltage, which is what, 1.5volts? That's what I want!

    amen, brother. 2000Mhz cas9 is no diffrent than any other module on the market today.


    i also agree that 2.0v is somewhat high, similarly speced RAM runs at 1.8-1.9v

    All in all i don't see what the fuss is all about.


    BTW, what's the deal with SLI-ready Nvidia RAM, is this similar to what Corsair and the green team did with DDR2 with EPP?

    just makes it work better in a Nvidia Sli board as stated above. Reads the Jedec or SPD timings automatically with no work needing to be done by the user.

    I said the same thing about DDR2 which needed like 1.8v or whatever it was. All the kits were at 1.9 to 2.1v. If the shit is rated for 1.5V they need to figure out how to get 2.0ghz on memory at 1.5v not 2.0v.

    It's rated at 1.5V for 1066 or 1333Mhz.

    Maybe not for 1GB sticks, but it is for 2GB sticks at 2000Mhz.

    Guys it runs at higher volts because its 2 gig stics the more modules need mor volts, same goes for 1gb vrs 2gb ddr2 ram higher volts, the 1 gig versions are 1.9 volts, 2 gig versions are 2.0 volts. Run the ram at the rated speed 1066 or 1333 apeed for the said low volts you guys are talking about. You will never ever get ddr3 to run above 1600mhz with anything less than 1.9 volts period.
