wow, thats impressive, and very nice timings but it's 1000mhz if I'm not mistake

but you say that it can do 1100mhz?

EDIT: I just read some customer reviews, and apperently, these sets die FAST, I'm not sure if this is a widespread problem though

whats the warranty on this set?

Definitely not a wide spread problem, at least not that I'm aware of. Check the signatures on this forum and I'm sure 1/3rd of people here are running the Redlines. That should tell you something right there. I got some Redlines for X-mas to replace my OCZ ram.

Mine are still kicking just fine @ 1100mhz, I have the 8000 kit but same shit just the 8500 are better binned, for the last 6 months or so running 2.16v.

I have been beating the crap out of my ram for 3+ months, running 1066MHz right now @ 2.0V too. And you must remember all the people out there that will pump 2.4V through stuff like this to get crazy speeds and then bitch because they die.

No, he isn't. Those sticks allow you tight timings with a high oc. Redlines are very good; XPs are the best.

Redlines are part of the XP series. I have mine at 1066, 5-5-5-12, with tight subtimings at 2.0v. Very decent stuff.
