In response to Intel's recent official release of its latest quad-core processors Core i7-800 series and Core i5-700 series, Apacer Technology Inc., the leading memory module manufacturer, unveils two DDR3 dual-channel overclocking memory modules—Golden and Aeolus series. They target desktop and overclocking users to by delivering extreme performance and fully support Core i7 and Core i5 processors that use Intel's Nehalem microarchitecture for optimum platform compatibility for mainstream desktop computers. Excellent overclocking performance thus comes realized.

To support P55 chipset-based Intel Core i7 and Core i5 platforms, Apacer's new DDR3 overclocking memory modules can be powered by 1.65V low voltage supply. When running under the dual-channel mode, Golden series can achieve bandwidth up to 1800 MHz. Aeolus series featuring unique Dual-layer Heat Spreader can reduce the temperature by as much as 20°C and also support maximum frequency of 2200 MHz. Exclusively designed for hardcore gamers and overclocking users, the overclocking memory modules allow users to experience the extreme overclocking performance.

In addition to the extreme speed and ultra low voltage, both of the two DDR3 dual-channel overclocking memory modules support Intel's latest XMP (Extreme Memory Profiles). The chipset will automatically read the memory module's SPD (Serial Presence Detect) and then automatically perform overclocking, enabling the user to experience all the excitement and power that overclocking has to offer.

Apacer's DDR3 modules adopt the latest process featuring 1Gbit/128Mx8 chip. It was screened in the dual channel test environment using the advanced test fixture and programs under diversified parameters of voltage and time sequences, to ensure best memory module performance and stability.

Admittedly, this is the first I've heard of Apacer... Interesting stuff. Wonder how loud that fan is? It's one of those things where you look at it, find it relatively neat and useful, only to come to the realization that damn, that would be an absolute bitch if it went out. Harkens back to the old ECS Extreme motherboards with their neon-colored VRM fans...

Judging by the pics on their website though, you may or may not be able to use four of these in a single system... http://usa.apacer.com/us/products/Overclocking_Series_Aeolus_DDR3-1800_Overclocking_Memory.htm

Yeah I never heard of them either and I was just complaining on the other thread of wanting a dual channel kit and blamo, here we go. Latencies are a tad high even the 10 on them. However, Id snag up the fan ones in a heart beat.
