Nice. I haven't had any experience with the ECO line, though: I've heard they're all right, but has anyone here used them?

Are these just a higher binned version of their current ECO RAM? The only thing I see different is the latency which could be done from the BIOS anyway...no?

Is 2 less latency at stock worth more than twice the amount of money?

I have been corrected.

That's a 4x2GB kit; this is a 2x4GB kit.

Ah, I see...I stand corrected. For those looking around for how the ECO's match up...they seem to do pretty well.

Here is the 2x2GB kit with same latency.

They are rock stable and OC like beasts, that's how they match up
I've loved every kit I've used. (I think three so far)

I have a 2 x 2 GB kit of the ECO series DDR3 1600 dual channel... 7-8-7-24 2T. Amazing memory. Ran fine at stock voltage, 1333 MHz and 7-7-7-20 1T timings. Runs fine at rated specs and at 1680 MHz 7-8-7-24 2T only requiring 1.40v. Overall this RAM line seems to get some praise... this kit would be great for me but not sure about the price. I might upgrade to a 2 x 4GB kit one day, don't want to use all 4 DIMM slots since I overclock.

No idea actually; before it was actually the opposite, but 2x4GB has really come down in price.
Redhat: hey hey, we haven't even seen the overclocking potential of this yet. It'd be a bit unfair to judge now
