If a Core i7 build using an X58 chipset board is in your future, you're going to need DDR3 triple channel memory. OCC checks out a kit with 9-9-9-28 timings in our review of the Geil Black Dragon PC3 12800 CAS 9 6GB - http://www.overclock...ck__dragon_6gb/

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 2.83GHz / ASUS P5Q Deluxe / Patriot Extreme Performance 2GB PC2-9600 DDR2-1200MHz / 2x Seagate ST3160827AS 160GB RAID 1 / Seagate ST31000340AS 1TB
Corsair TX750W / Sapphire HD 5870 1GB GDDR5 / SilverStone TJ05 / Scythe Zipang 140mm CPU Cooler / ASUS VH202T-P 20" widescreen monitor (x2) / XP Pro SP 3

just like the DDR sticks, the gold bits are supposed to be two dragons, with the red lights in their eyes.

those are pretty sweet looking. curious how they don't use a heatspreader when they seem to be all the rage these days. I wonder if that has any effect on OCs

Nope, they are low voltage as well. Low voltage being a relative term. Plus they are also tested in a room at more than 100 Celsius as a burn in process.

It looks like the memory chips have ceramic heat spreaders cemented to them?

To me it looks like the chamber is heated therefore the modules would be up to 100C or higher based on the room temperature!
