Over at Techware Labs, OCZ's PC2 7200 SLI-Ready 2Gb kit is on the test bench.  This RAM may be fast out of the package, but they couldn't say they'd fully tested it without a good overclock, and in this case 1200MHz @ 5-5-5-18 timings by bumping the voltage to 2.4 was the best they could get.  Add some active cooling and you may even go beyond.

Mushkin's XP2-9200 runs at 1150MHz @ 5-5-4-12 out of the box, and Overclocker's Club pushed it to 1200MHz without any effort at all.  With a different board and a bump in voltage, these DIMMs can probably go even further.  As this RAM will keep up with any processor on the market right now, it lets you take full advantage of a 1:1 ratio between RAM and CPU.

HotHardware has posted a review of Corsair's newest Dominator, the TWIN2X2048-10000C5DF.  It is a pair of 1GB DIMMs running at PC2-10000 DIMMs with timings of 5-5-5-18-2T at 1250MHz, and sports the Dominator cooling fans and shroud.   Because this is pretty much the fastest RAM going, there isn't much room for OCing, but it does come out king in

CellShock and MSC GmbH are probably not names that spring to mind when someone is talking about RAM.  However, they have been active in Europe for over 20 years.  Legit Reviews takes a look at their DDR2 1000 2GB kit.  The DIMMS have a good heatsink, use Micron D9GKX IC's, live on an 8 layer PCB and can hold their own against Corsair.

 Legion Hardware sets out to solve a mystery in this article about low latency RAM.  The cost difference between a lower latency DIMM and a higher can be enormous, so they test RAM at 5 different speeds and 4 different timings.  Can a high frequency overcome a low latency?

X-bit Labs reviews the Acer Aspire 9300, a Turion X2 based machine coupled with Nvidia nForce Go 430 MCP and Nvidia GeForce Go 6100 chipset plus an onboard 7600 Go SE.  It is not going to keep up with an Alienware machine, but the combined battery life, and the price/performance ratio might just tempt quite a few people.

Corsair's DOMINATOR Twin2X2048-8888C4DF runs at 1111 MHz with timings of 4-4-4-12.  They have Corsair's newly designed heatspreaders, and the DOMINATOR Airflow fan bracket is optional.  Thanks to this efficient cooling scheme, 1244 MHz at 4-4-4-12 is reachable, if the voltage is bumped to 2.5V.  Be prepared to pay for this performance though, these modules will set you back more than $700.  Re
