Default G.skill F2-8500cl5d

Has anyone tried the G.SKILL F2-8500CL5D? If so has anyone tried them in a Gigabyte board?

I wish you guys would stop reading my mind. I was looking at those earlier today. $80 for 2gb pc2-8500? How could you not buy them?

Just found the 2x2GB sticks on NCIX's special list for 119.99. That's a hell of a price for pc2-8500.

Think I'm going to order up some myself. Anyone want some 1 week old OCZ pc2-6400? Cheap?

For some reason, I feel that they aren't gonna clock much higher than rated...not that most ppl will need them to...

So how're they doing?
