Though priced a touch on the high side, and meeting us with disappointing overclocks, the simple fact that these modules ran perfectly with tightened latencies out of the box, and the fact that they're backed by a lifetime warrantee laid our minds to rest. In the end, I'd have no qualms using something like this in a client build, or recommending something like this to a casual gamer. In terms of extremely demanding performance users (read ones with pockets deeper than oceans), memory such as this probably isn't your cup of tea, as it won't be able to keep up as your FSB goes sky high. On the plus side, though, if you do grab these modules for your next gaming rig - whether for yourself or another, you won't have to worry much about waiting days on end if the inevitable happens, and if that client does manage to fudge the sticks up, then at least the cost won't be out of your pocket - and isn't that the best value of all, when for yourself or another, you'll only have to pay for something that'll stay with you years to come once?
