The original 2000MHz DDR3 Blade series from OCZ comes at a very reasonable price, though it's latencies are higher than it's new brother. If you want 7-8-7-20 timings, you are going to have to spend three times as much. Those low timings are impressive for DDR3, let alone DDR3-16000 and hopefully the tighter timings will produce some speed increases. Is it enough to justify the cost? Head to Legit Reviews for your answer.
"When it comes to pricing the OCZ Blade DDR3-2000 7-8-7-20 6GB Triple Channel memory kit
will set you back a cool $415 shipped, which is a high price to pay in this day and

$134.99 shipped after a $20 rebate. Is paying an extra $280.01 for CL7 versus CL9
timings worth it? To many it may not be, but to those looking to build the fastest
system and have the money to spend then it sure is..."
