My System Specs

Default Buffalo Firestix FSX1066D2C-K2G

Has anybody had a chance to try these out yet?

CL4 1066 sticks????

Haven't done any research on them yet, but damn.... CL4 1066 right out of the box, at a sub-$100 price for a couple of sticks? That's getting my geek mojo working.... :)

Off to surf for reviews.

Just got them in.... haven't had a chance to check them out yet, but I'm thinking these (4G) will go nicely with the DFI board, and my young lad will get my fav set of super-talent sticks........

There was discussion on the product page about the mislabelling by NCIX. Oh well, still not a bad price though.

Unfortunately, you can. The DDR2-1066 stuff is great with their D9GKX chips (most likely D9GMH now), but their PCB is plagued. Everyone had these a few months ago when they were known as the best budget overclockers, until people fed more than 2.0V-2.1V to these modules. These died left and right when people set the sticks to above 2.1V, not because of the IC's, but because of the PCB design.

Things might have changed by now, considering this happened a few months ago, but you never know

Well so far they're failing to impress....

Gotta find some extended timings for them. As it stands, they won't post above 1000 with standard timings (5-5-5-18).
