Here is a review:

Samsung 2x4GB DDR3-1600 Memory Review
BMWBAXTER | overclockers
Quote:
Throughout the overclocking process I kept saying "This has to be it, there is no way this kit can break 1800 MHz… 2000 MHz… 2200 MHz". This kit did all that and more.
Quote:
That's right folks! This little kit is able to not only able to post at 2400 MHz but was able to pass wPrime 1024m! This was with only 1.58 volts.
Here is the newegg link with 3 reviews:

This is a followup review after 1-2 weeks of testing.

Thanks for the link. I think these are very promising, and show a really good outlook for 30nm modules.

Here is a decent post from the thread:

Thanks for sharing the deal! I went ahead and bought it since I'm having problems with BF3 when I use Crossfire mode. My 4GB of RAM doesn't seem to cut it anymore when Crossfire is enabled. +rep derp can't rep.

I have prime as well, but still had to pay $5.25 to ship 3 kits. Not bad though... I'll compare them to my 24Gb RipJaw DDR3 1600 cas 8 kit.

Oh these are the half-height low profile ones that used to be really expensive. Good for X79 platform.

I want to be able to still use these when IB-E comes out. That is the upgrade I've been holding out for...

Look at the other options on the right...amazon themselves is selling the 2x4gb kit for 47.57, and you can get your prime on

I have prime as well and really tempted to snag these for the wife's build...

I've been looking for a 2x4GB kit to replace my XMS3 (4GB isn't cutting it) kit. Even if I don't OC the RAM, would it be worth it to buy these sticks?

The shipping isn't actually too bad, and was a better deal. I would be paying the newegg price (which also has free shipping), and paying $142.71 vs the $124.69 I paid.

I think so. The 2x4Gb kits have been going back up in price since December (used to be $29.99 a kit). These look like a great deal, even for DDR3 1600. Compare them to the Newegg DDR3 1600 kits:

They also have them at Microcenter for the same price

(of course you have to pay tax, but its cheaper than shipping if you're already going there)

I think I'm going to pick up a set to put in my NAS build (switching to an 1155 NAS to properly run ZFS) should shave off a few V's

The CAS rating is what scares me. I guess with a bump to 1.5V, I should be able to hit at least CAS9?

Sorry yeah, forgot to mention that. These seem to do well at 1.45v and higher with tighter timings. So they should run cas 9 timings without a problem. I won't know first hand though until I test them.
