very nice. and if they are sturdy enough can be manhandled, i mean removed with two fingers. instead of
pulling on a bare pcb till your hands bleed :D

also,come one,lets see some (g)ddr5 in our desktops!!!


ps '1.65 voltage' : one may need to boot first with a 1.5v memory stick and set bios mem voltage accordingly before,on some mobos.

Nice, but did anyone else notice that these look almost identical to the OCZ Reaper HPC?

How are Apacer modules in terms of reliability and overclocking though? I've been largely a Corsair/G Skill man (with the latter being horrible experiences) but wouldn't mind getting a couple of this if they come out well in reviews.

I guess since OCZ dropped out of the RAM market, other companies are free to snatch up their designs

Is Apacer popular in North America though? I don't recall seeing their products very often.

I recall seeing a lot of apacer ram in the early part of this century (around 2K onwards), but it was always non-enthusiast products such as bare ram sticks and things like add-on cards (soundcards, modems, etc.....). Pretty sure they're a subsidiary of something like ACER........

My very first OCs were carried out on a pair of standard 512K Apacer sticks from two different lots..... :)
