Cons: Could not get to 2600 MHz.

Maybe it's just me but breaking 2500 MHz with $100 memory is pretty awesome. :lol:

2400MHz, man I really am old school. 65 quid in Sterling or so, sounds about right to me.

When guys are pushing past 2600 with this kit I think that's valid.

Luck of the draw I guess. Still impressive!

Good enough, actually more than expected performance from a $100 kit.

What would be nice is to start showing the overclocking or underclocking ability with limiting the voltages to 1.55V's on SB/IB systems. Not that I've seen or heard of any issues with DRAM Voltage higher than 1.55V's, but most users tend to stay on the safe side.

^^ Exactly.
I, personally, fear to go beyond 1.55V as I don't have dedicated RAM cooler.

If you're using RAM with an XMP profile and your CPU dies Intel will replace it no questions asked. :cheers:
