Easily one of the fastest and accessible pieces of DDR3 kit, if your system does not support OC'ed RAM. At 1600 MHz and a CAS latency of only 9 cycles, plus an understated cooling element that looks absolutely wicked, you can't go wrong. Can be had for $17 per 4 GB stick on eBay.

It's ok. It's just ok... To slow for heavy work. 8BG will be fine for gaming tho.
