    like the heatspreaders, would have liked to see the inside of them however, are they copper?

    Metallica ram? Patriot should pay LARS ulrich to use them for drumsticks on the next tour, for a laugh.

    Pretty disappointed you don’t mention anything about voltages apart from ‘it defaulted to 1.65v’ on the 4th page. So what volts did you actually test the ram at and did they run at the advertised 1.5v????

    Sweet looking memory!Nice review!

    What about FPS gaming performance? raising the speed and increasing the timings is all well and good, but will drop the framerates. Any chance you can also test RAM in games next time? As gamers upgrade their RAM as much as other users, your review didn’t really help me much.
