A-Data RAM
I'm curious about these guys as I haven't heard much about them.

They've got some nice inexpensive (relatively speaking) triple channel DDR3 kits out.

Probably the cheapest 1600MHz 3x2 kit I've seen yet is this one:
NCIX.com - Buy A-DATA AD31600G002GU3K 6GB DDR3 3X2GB DDR3-1600 CL 9-9-9-24 Triple Channel Memory Kit - AD31600G002GU3K In Canada.

Anyone have any experience with these guys?

I'm more inclined to go with Mushkin or Corsair, but we're getting close to a $200 price difference here.:doh:

So much stuff out there is spit out of the same factory and rebadged by different vendors I'd be surprised if this is not identical to a few of the expensive brands.

$200 for a heat spreader.

I've used adata memory and have no problems with it, nothing enthusiast.

They are trying to make a splash in Canada and North America in general. That is why you will see reviews of some of their products here on HWC in the coming months.

Hmm...so maybe worth a shot then?

Food for thought.

Well Im not even close to a RAM expert but when I buy a new part I check out online rivews. So my sugestion would be to check out some online rivews before you desided on it. Persionaly tho I would stick to a known brand for the time being

A-Data has made some kick-arse RAM, more popular in Europe/Asia. Many records on XS have been set using A-Data. I wouldn't hesitate to grab some, if the price(and warranty) was right.

Edit: Here's their website.. if you're interested in the RAM, browse around their site first.

Thanks 1Tanker...I'll definitely look through there.
