This would have been awesome...2 years ago.

More so for the innovation, and not the power saving.

Now if we got cheap RAM that ran under 1v. That would be something to jump about for.

Except if you're running this on 100,200,500 or even 1000 corporate computers, which for a company isn't unthinkable. Save 1KWh by just using different ram sticks. Yay.

It can add up!

Used recycled paper probably isn't a bad idea, every little bit counts.

As long as it's not causing more waste or pollution we shouldn't be criticizing any company for starting a line of green products.

How about the fact that these will boot in any board? I have had some 680i and 780i boards that are really picky after a cmos what they will boot up on until you up the volts.

Was wondering that too. Plus they have no heatspreaders so you can see the IC's straight away. Just put a fan over them or something

So the only thing green about them besides the colour is they use .2v less and come in a recycled paper packaging

i wouldnt call that green, id call the power saving nice and the packaging/marketing a gimmick

for it to be really green we'd need to know about the process sued to make it , whats done with all the waste and what kind of waste is it etc and what it takes to create it and how much polution is given off and how much power is requred to make it etc etc etc

im not a greeny by far but it just ****s me to tears when people just slap labels on something without all the stuff needed to back it up

on an up side maybe the clock well if they can use lower volts for 1066mhz , and as for the no heat spreader whats everyone whinging about? just go out and buy a nice aftermarket heat sink, plenty of people do that anyway even when the memory they buy has a HS

Yep yep, 3$ and your kit is good to go.

I actually want to pick up a pair of the Cas6 1066 sticks to give them a run.

Slap some of theses on them for cooling and all should be well.

1066MHz CAS6 @ 1.6V no heat spreaders FTW! Wow, I really wonder what ICs are onboard- and just how much volts they'll take. If they max @ 2.2-2.3V that's a lot of headroom to tighten timings and crank the MHz.

Or for $13/dimm some of these. I'd like to get some just to see myself.

Wow, those would look good in my case. I picked up the TT modules at Fry's on sale for $5.99 ea. last year- and used $15 from returns in store credit to pay

I would buy a stick of these for my up coming netbook if they provided some for laptop memory and it operated at a lower voltage then what comes packaged with it.
