Hey Pook I would be careful running these with the stock heatspreaders at anything over 2.2v for extended periods of time. They dont seem to handle the high volts very well. I mean sure with active cooling they can take it for a little while but really you run a huge chance of killing them with high volts. The guinie pigs at XS proved this one with there insane oc's and as such insane voltages.

2 sticks should do 1200 with 5-5-5-15 with 2.2vdimm and should last a while. Just a FYI for you guys getting this ram.

yep I have a 120 blowing on them, the heat is what kills it, not the voltage, unless you run 2.4v. They went from so hot that I couldn't even touch them, to luke warm.
