If you want to overclock your Intel platform to its maximum, get this memory. This is the first memory where I wished I had an even better test system. With the CPU in the 4.4GHz range the memory had no trouble performing and I think there is quite some headroom left.
However, with a price tag of $200 for a 1 GB kit, this memory is expensive for the 2-3% performance you can get over using standard memory at 1:1. Still, 2-3% are what makes the difference between winning or losing in a benchmarking competition.
