That is some impressive SDRAM; although at that price point I am very curious to see some benchmarks, because it needs to produce some magical performance numbers for $340 at 4 x 4GB.

The timings are pretty unimpressive, no point in OC'ing the frequency that much if you hurt the timings that bad.

What I found less impressive was actually the voltage, 1.65V Now, if they had it at 1.35 or even at 1.5V...that would be another story. So it looks like that memory is already running at its limits.

I'm not worried about RAM running at its limits. I've taken DDR3 on some high voltage, without fail. My fear is how strong the memory controller on the Chip is. And what its Voltage limitations are.

Good to see we are getting closer and closer.
