Full lineup here on Newegg.

Got my eye on the 7-8-7-24 1600MHz kit, but was wondering if anyone has used these yet?
Will be using for an i5 build and figured these low voltage kits (1.35v) would be a good idea.

I know the vast majority of kits are within 1.6-1.65v and everyone seems to be doing fine with them, but doesn't Intel say not to exceed 1.5v?

TIA - CV

Up to 1.65v on the memory modules is just fine for an Intel build, so look for the best kit within that voltage.

So Intel warning that + 1.5v RAM could damage CPU is caca?

2000MHz kit of Ripjaws (1.6v) were my first choice, but they won't fit under a Megatron / fan
...I'd have to use a H-50 for those (mATX build...not doing custom loop lol)

They say they were designed for 1156... does anyone think I'll have problems running them on 1366? I plan to get 3 sets of the 4GB DDR3-1600 8-8-8-24 kits for 12GB.

Just a FYI, I e-mailed G.Skill about the DDR3-1333 7-7-7-21 ECO modules - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231318 to ask about their capabilities in terms of voltage and frequencies, and I got this reply back:

Dear Customer

These are high performance modules, so they can surely take quite a bit of stress. Although we do not recommend it, these modules can be overvolted to 1.65V. Many people have been able to reach DDR3-1800. It will simply require some tuning, but once you find the settings, your system should be plenty fast.

Thank you
GSKILL SUPPORT

I'm going to try to get it stable at DDR3-1600 and beyond when I make my next overclock push. If I were in the market for more memory I'd get this one - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231321

Just thought you'd all like to know. The ECO series rocks
I'm running at DDR3-1400 and 1.4v (minimum on mobo) right now
