After using the Crucial BallistiX DDR3 DDR3-2000 8GB kit in my primary PC for a couple, I quickly became spoiled by having an extra 4GB of RAM available compared to the 4GB kit I had been using previously. Even having a few standard applications like an internet browser, photo editor, media player, and office applications open resulted in system RAM usage of 4GB in Windows. So, I am officially convinced that I need more than 4GB of RAM for daily use...

This chips are truly something special , their place of stay should be AMD llano boards ... Most likely .
Good job on the review , i didn't really knew that AMD had better tuning options then Intel , even being an AMD fan , seriously .
Memory voltages , bus speeds , memory speeds . VROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMM , YMMV .

Yeah, at least in terms of memory overclocking, an AMD system has better flexibility than an Intel Sandy Bridge system due to the locked bus speed. If we could have bumped up the bus clock a few MHz, we would have more memory speed options.

8 months passed since I've purchased my GSkill Ripjaws 2133Mhz kit (4GB) for $62 and there is still nothing out there that can beat it especially for the price. Every time I read a review of a memory kit, it just gives me a smile to know that I've made the right choice. No monitoring and no OC - I just simply get 28.4MB/s read performance @ 1.6V and the system is super stable @ 4.7Ghz :)
