What, no love for AMD/i3/i5 in the dual channel 4 Gig range?

I do like the non-standard look though.

They have dual channel kits SS, and if you look they are all 4GB modules which is probably going to be the new standard moving forward. Lots of AMD and i3/5 love. The Kits are all 1.5 which is spec for those Chips IMC's.

Hence why I asked about Dual channel 4 Gig (as in 2X2G). They have a 3X2G, don't see why they wouldn't offer a dual channel set of 2G sticks.

As far as I can tell, I think the idea is that the Vengeance series will only be an enthusiast focused 4GB DIMM only series. I'll see if I can touch base with Corsair to confirm.

looks like simply a price point to have something 'cheap' in this line of memory for i7 triple channel users.

without that kit, the cheapest triple channel kit is $225. looks like they just didn't want to alienate entry level X58 users IMO.
