The default timings are slightly different from the G-Skills, but the chips on the ram are better binned. The low voltage version of the Blade series can overclock to around 1235mhz at CL5, which is very impressive for a 2x2GB set. The price is also right

Thanks! Plus the Blade height size's lower too, or am I wrong?

Yes, the heatspreaders are overkill anyway at low voltage

Cheers Decide to overclock it in the future. Know any good low profile CPU cooler? Need to be less than 70mm I think.

*Edit*

Found some, Zalman CNPS8700 LED 66mm, Rosewill RCX-Z2-EX69mm, Scythe Shuriken SCSK-100065mm, Thermolab TLI-U Nano Silencer 45mm

If you are going with the 9800gt why dont you get the DFI nvidia board with the 9400 onboard graphics so you can run hybrid SLi. They are very similarly priced and have pretty much the same features.

You can find it here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136064

Thank you, that's very useful! Been trying to find a review of it with the hybrid SLi benchmark, you know where I could find one?

The Nvidia website has a comparison between hybrid SLi vs standard dedicated GPU. I think there is a decent improvement in graphics quality. Also you shouldnt have a problem fitting a 9 inch card into you case seeing as most matx mobos are 9.6" x 9.6"
