So I have been DYING to buy me some 4Gb of 2000 Mhz DDR3 Diablo ram.
http://www.csx-memory.com/?site=show_info&group_id=51&article_id=630

But they don't ship to the US :/
and UK haven't gotten it yet but they will.

I'm looking for someone reliable to have the RAM shipped to, who can then ship it to me (I will pay for shipping of course).
Because of the risk I'd prefer someone with a Kicka$$ heatware, or a moderator.

If you live in:
Germany
BE
DK
FI
IE
IT
LU
NO
PT
ES
etc..

and would like to do this for me it would be greatly appreciated!

You sure you want to pay more than double (EU taxes & shipping) that you would have to pay for buying similar modules (Micron DDR3) from US?

Wow, this is the first time I've heard of something being available in Europe and not in the US. Are you sure you searched hard enough?

This RAM is not only very powerful, but has been thouroughly tested and compatable with my incoming mobo (Rampage Extreme), plus even with EU Tax AND shipping it is still significantly less expensive than the similar Corsair 4GB Modules.

I'm sure, CSX is a Lithuanian (I believe) based company, which isn't international yet, and the RAM is also fairly new, it isn't even available in the UK yet (but should be soon).

If you guys can pm me your heatware, It would be appreciated.
Oh and WhiteLotus I would set it up with you but they don't ship to UK just yet :/

"Tested and Compatible" are very bogus terms. I've had a Kingston DDR2 1066 kit Tested and Compatible with my Gigabyte P35 board refusing to do 1066 MHz in the past. Look for some CellShock / Crucial alternative. Or try Corsair's 2133 MHz kit. I bet for the same money (or even less, considering EU's taxes + the custom duty you incur at the US Customs)you could get this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227310

If you still want that Diablo thingy, pay for it, pay for its shipping to your European friend's house, pray to God he/she doesn't ditch you, pay for its international shipping to the US, clear the customs duty (if any), and then use it. Is it worth the trouble?

Besides, imagine what you'll go thru if you discover the kits are DOA and need replacement.

Very true, the DOA situation would be hell. I've looked, I might have missed something but I'm looking for 4GB (2*2) that runs at 2000MHz. I know Diablo ram uses Micron D9GTR, and I haven't found any 4GB kits [with 2GB modules] that use that, and thats the chip I want for my board. Not to mention 4GB of Diablo ram is 246 Euro while similar Corsair Dominator is 575 Euro.

From what I've seen, I think Diablo is the better RAM for my mobo, and considering it is probably going to be cheaper than the Corsair why wouldn't I opt for it?
^ Is my reasoning.

Because Newegg sells a OCZ kit for $339 (free shipping, MIR, no NY tax (yay!)). The transit costs between Europe and your place (by DHL / UPS / FedEx it's around ~$70(?) for a small box) add to the kits effective cost.. Plus do you know what the US Customs would charge you for that? Is it liable for Customs duty? Get that OCZ thingy, buy some cooler from Sidewinder.
