Silicon Power have been around for 7 years and mostly have provided CF card but are extending their expertise to SSDs and RAM. In this particular review it is the XPower DDR3 2000 RAM, nothing to do with MSI even with a name similar to a particular Big Bang series motherboard. The stats are right, a pair of XMP profiles will have you running at either DDR3-1800 @ 9-9-9-24 or DDR3-2000 @ 9-9-9-27, at least in theory. What Bjorn3D found was that the XMP profiles would not work properly for them and they had

Over at OC3D they got their hands on Mushkin's new PC16000 Radioactive 6GB RAM kit, with a very unique colour scheme. The yellow colour is reminiscent of glow in the dark plastic and will certainly stand out in any case, though likely clashing with some of the more colourful motherboards available nowadays. You can even expect a decent overclock from them as well.

Perhaps the most disappointing thing that AnandTech found about the Acer Aspire 5551G-4591
is that it is out of stock everywhere. Consider the low expectations that they had walking into the review that almost rates as a stellar recommendation; the fact that AnandTech actually went looking for the device puts this Aspire miles ahead of past models. It is not a high powered notebook, it is better compared to Atom+ION netbooks as opposed to gaming laptops with switchable GPUs.

The 4GB OCZ Blade ST 2000MHz Low Voltage DDR3 kit
has quite a bit going for it, from its 9-9-9-24 timings @ 1.65v to the ease it adds to those looking to overclock an LGA1156 CPU. A little tweaking to the BCLK is much easier when your RAM is happy to run at those speeds, removing it as a cause of instability when you are overclocking. Drop by BenchMark Reviews to see these DIMMs in action.

The G.Skill FLARE PC3-16000
kit is a pair of 2GB DIMMs running at 2000MHz and running you about $180. The high price is the penalty you face for trying to grab some of the fastest RAM available. Once OC3D popped open the kit the AM3 branding seemed a little off as no matter what they tried they could not get these DIMMs runnin

Picking up a Core i3, i5 or certain i7 CPUs does limit you to dual channel memory if you use an H55 based board and many feel that going that route limits your RAM. Really, the difference between triple channel and dual channel RAM is minuscule and
there is no reason you can't have large amounts of RAM on a dual channel system. G.Skill makes this obvious with their 8GB Trident 2000 MHz DD

DDR3 is not really that old but has finally overtaken DDR2 for the first choice in memory for new systems. Just like its predecessors, as the DDR3 standard matures manufacturers can get higher frequencies out of their DIMMs and of course charge a premium for those high speed kits. Kingston has been rather forceful in pushing DDR3 to its current limitations and they have just released two new kits. The highest end kit hit 2.5GHz @ 9-11-9-27 during the quick overclock
