    I am using the first set you linked, the Ripjaws. They work fine in my EX58-UD3R. I have them running at DDR3-1640 @7-8-7-22-1T, 1.60 volts. Geez they were only $139 when I got them.

    ^^+1, I prefer the Ripjaw too. Better value for money IMO and should easily OC to 1800 @ CAS 8 too.

    Price has increased recently because they're getting very popular. GSkill and the retailers must have noticed the extra demand and decided to take advantage of it, sadly.

    The Pi series has always been good. Problem is, they're a premium line. There may be a little more OC head room in them but for me, they don't represent real good value. Those Ripjaw are remarkable for the price.

    Ya they are a bit more, but you do get what you pay for. And I do often see users saying they bin their kits fairly tight, do you think the same?

    I am thinking about seeing if they will send me a kit for review. Have to wait on one other item to see if I will be reviewing it or not though before I ask because I don't want to have more to do then I can handle at once.

    I really do want to review them though, and hope they include that new cooling fan with the 6GB kits as well, it looks very nice

    Yes, I agree. It seems they only give you the bare minimum "quality" needed to run at rated speed. I've had better luck OCing value RAM than the GSkill PI and PK I've used.

    Maybe with the advent of DDR3 and its lower voltage, better current leakage handling etc this may change. I'd still expect there highest speed kits to be pretty tightly binned though. Especially in this day and age of a dodgy ecoonomy, they'll be trying to keep costs as low as possible.

    I bought the GSKILL trident more oc room and better heat sinks for cooling. thanks..

    Will the Corsair Dominator GT 6GB DDR3 PC3-15000C7 1866MHz be fine with the UD7 board? If given the choice between these and the G-Skill Trident which would be the better choice?
