I sure didn't know that memory speed was so closely associated with physics performance. It's actually Mushkin 1866 MHz. http://www.mushkin.com/Memory/Redline/997008.aspx Time to speed it back up. I don't know why this ASUS mobo slowed it down to begin with.
Mushkin also beat NewEgg's price once more. I just ordered another pair since it's on sale again. Weight wise, these Redline's are the heaviest modules I've ever owned. The heat sinks/spreaders/whatever are solid cast aluminum. One stick weighs as much as, say, a pair of Corsair Vengeance. The heatspreaders are also bolted on, unlike Corsair's cheap, double sided tape that almost always fails. Especially after the memory warms up. I've had Vengeance heatspreaders completely pull loose when just removing them from the package.
Also, each stick of Mushkin is tested by hand to ensure it's working at spec. before it's even packaged for sale. Corsair = fail.

Not that big of a difference, IMO.
