Pretty good stuff, whatever it is. I mean, obviously it's memory (DRAM), but I have no idea which ICs (chips - as in, Samsung, Hynix, Micron, etc.) that this kit uses because Thaiphoon Burner can't read them for some reason. However, they've overclocked like a champ. I'm currently running them at 2400 MT/s 11-13-13-31 1T @ 1.675V with an i7-3770K and Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD4H motherboard. See my results link below.
