    I saw this^ and I'm curious. it looks like it has good timings and such...so why is it 'Value'? and at $15+ cheaper than typical pc3200 it looks like a good deal

    but I'd like to know why the 'Value' tag is stuck on it before I go investing any money

    :cheers:

    Looking at their website, the only difference I see is that the value branded modules don't use the 6-layer PCB

    funny thing about that, is the link above says:
    6 Layer PCB
    so maybe newegg.com has a typo, maybe?

    It's likely called "value" as it don't o/c very well if at all.

    I'm sorry but I can't see any other reason for the the "value" tag. :shrug:

    It looks good too. It has a raised silver/blk GEIL emblem on the other side which is a NICE touch to heatsink for value ram.
    They say it is value but I don't know, people are get 432-436 out of it. At a gig of memory.
    Not bad if you ask me.
    I can't wait till I get my system together and see how it works out. I didn't want to buy Corsair, I read the house of help for a couple days, and it seems hit and miss with them lately. Like you might as well go through value ram, cause that is what they are pushing, even in their highest touted chips.

    The timings are about the same. And did you read the reviews on the Golden, it looks like it has a little bit of issues running 200 in dual.

    The blue has 73 reviews. A lot of people with the A7N8X have had great results with it.

    JMHO. It seems like even better ram, and cheaper.
    The golden does look pretty cool too. I was looking into getting some. But I read geils site and a bunch of other reviews and it seems there are problems with it running dual.
    I hope it works out for you. Let me know if it does. I am still looking for something better if this Geil I have now doesn't work out the best. But i want to stay away from Corsair at the moment. too many problems right now with them and their Quality assurance from what I have researched.
