That being said, your current Dom RAM should be fine.
Someone bought 2 kits already from their Microcenter and had some light testing on them in the thread linked below. I bought them through Amazon/Tiger Direct, though I kind of regret it as I actually went to a movie theater near my local Microcenter just an hour later after buying them online. Instant gratification is always better than having to play the waiting game.
Dude that memory is cheap right now, read the overclockers review and newegg has 4 reviews and think 3 overclocked it over 2000mhz, the 4th guy i dont think wasnt an enthusiast. I wish samsung would release their own extreme line, I think its because they provide to so many, they might look at it as a conflict of interest perhaps, but this goes on with power supplies all day long, seasonic/corsair for example.
Anyone know if memtest 86+ is a good enough test to determine if my memory is stable? I just want to make sure Im not thinking its a cpu overclock issue if I use prime. Let it run a few hours last night, made 6 full passes at 1.58v with no errors. I want to try to lower it some more and see when it starts to fail.
