    It is, yes, but that's a misprice and not likely to be in-stock anytime soon.

    We'll contact Scan for confirmation.

    Re: Reviews - Corsair DDR3-1,600MHz: worth the premium over DDR2?

    The review on page 3 gives the part number of the memory as TW3X2G1600C9DHXNV but seeing as it shows that the pack is 2 x 2Gb of memory shouldn't the part number be TW3X4G1600C9DHXNV instead?

    Re: Reviews - Corsair DDR3-1,600MHz: worth the premium over DDR2?

    i wonder IF i7 allows for higher FPS with DDR3 if its due to the proccessor, OR due to the extra bandwidth....

    will there be a way to test it vs DDR2/3 on an X48/P45 chipset?
