i guess because they want more profits? i mean its selling pretty quickly since i recommend it atleast 5 times a day at the forum, that or low on stock and the price jack is for the low supply high demand til more stock comes

It's about supply and demand.

I have a feeling though, when the July 22 price cuts happen....other components could go up, because there will be a higher demand to build computers.

thank god i bought mine for 109...still, i think i shoulda bought the 2x2GB so that when i want more, i just add another 2x2GB in and then i maxed out my mobo...but the prices had a $40 instant savings...and that savings just went away..

on a side note, whats difference betweek HK and HZ's? i bought the black ones, HZ's

HZ are D9, they also (supposedly) overclock better. they have better heat spreaders. they are black lol. the HK have tighter timings, though.
but i have reaf that the HK will do over 1000mhz at their stock timings if you juice em a bit....so i dunno. thats a pretty massive overclock for having those kinds of timings.
i think they raised the prices because the supply is down. when they get back up to stock the prices will come down i reckon. i will be watching for sure. now i'm thinking of buying the HK before they go up 50 bucks....crap.
