Yeah. ;)

Also, the timings can be tightened pretty well, but not at super-high overclocks. With Sandy Bridge, it's a bit easier since you don't really increase BCLK.

My two settings I use:
Memory: 4 x 4GB Samsung Extreme Low Voltage 1866MHz @ 8-9-9-24-1T at 1.5V's - this is what I typically use
Memory: 4 x 4GB Samsung Extreme Low Voltage 2133MHz @ 10-10-10-28-1T at 1.55V's - this is what I use for benchmarks

I also did get one set at tighter timings:
Memory: 4 x 4GB Samsung Extreme Low Voltage 2133MHz @ 9-10-10-28-1T at 1.55V's - luck of the draw, I guess

This kit is one of the best available in sub 45 range IMO. Although prices have increased a bit and thereby crossing 50 mark.
