    Although all this makes sense, I am still somewhat surprised by the results. Thanks for doing this one though Hexus, I am looking to build a new system sooner or later and just going with 4gb should knock a fair amount of cash off the price!

    So wait, what chips do each vendor use in their offerings? What's the advertised failure rate? Real world encoding benchmarks that aren't PCMark? All I see are a bunch of synthetics and a couple of games and no real explanation and analysis.

    hmmm why not try some `cheap as chips` ram? the baseline crucial for example is £15 for a 2 gig stick on play.com , would make an interesting metric tbh , if the `ultra uber high end` is really any better than the usual stuff.

    Re: Reviews - Intel Sandy Bridge DDR3 memory shootout: Corsair vs. Crucial vs. G.Skil

    Interesting read with a suprising outcome. Would like to see this repeated on a AMD hexa core system to see if there is any differance but I would suspect the results will be similar. Might just buy some 1600 speed ram and overclock to 1866 if buldozer does officially support that speed.
