They are going to have to be cheaper than the Ripjaws that are 1600 at 7-7-7 and the same voltage. If these hit shelves for $100 Canadian they should sell quite well.

How much are you expecting them to sell for? These are 4GB dimms, which are still pretty hard to find. The best I could see the 4GB Ripjaw dimms on for was $200/ea.

No...it's a matter of preference. G.Skill is not at all preferable to Mushkin. I would readily buy Mushkin over G.Skill. Heck, just today I bought a 4GB DDR2-800 kit for a household machine.

Who cares about support when all the major memory brands offer lifetime warranties these days? If someone needs actual support that's not RMA-related, then they're probably too incompetent to even own the RAM kit.

Any half-knowledgeable enthusiast can configure a RAM kit, overclock it, and troubleshoot it.

According to Ramlist. Mushkin did not make any DDR3 rams with Elpida Hyper ICs.
