The 2000 CL8, apparently suck and are really bad, and as mentioned, are being taken off the market, just hasnt gotten to us yet though so...They damn good looking none the less though

Thanks all.
What about these?

you know. i might get some hate for this. but i stick with A-data.
its cheaper, and i have not noticed any difference at all over other brand.
very reliable. only thing is voltage is a bit higher. so maybe a gew more degrees of heat. no biggie since my case is LOADED with fans of all sizes

It might just been my lack of experience with non-integrated memory controllers (LGA 775), but I had my C2D e8400 running at 3.6ghz on a mild overclock (and with the whimpy stock cooler).

In any case, I'd say nothing in the DDR3 world that I have seen, really compares to this guy:

Mushkin Redline http://www.mushkin.com/Memory/Redline/996970.aspx very close to DDR2 speeds, however it's capable of much higher capacity. The quality of Corsair seems to have diminished from it's DDR400 days, getting that ram to run at 2-2-2-5 was absolutely painless on my old DFI Lanparty UT NF4 Ultra-D.

thats a amazing kit of ram. I have the same kit but in ridgeback form. Iirc the only difference is binning of the chips. The redlines are probly a little bit better. Im holding 1800 7-8-7-24 @ 1.65 on a amd system so im not complaining
