Nice review!

I got G.Skill in my system right now, it works. Not this set, but the Ripjaws X.

Decent look for the set to boot.

I had read another article on this memory kit a few days ago. They stated they had successfully used the 1t command rate setting instead of the reccommended 2t setting without problems. Did you try the 1t setting and if you did, did you encounter any problems? I thought i read your review carefully and didnt see any reference.
