Man... thats all you can give me?!

This a lot of money to throw down the drain if theyre piles of crap.
Lifetime warranty is helpful but that doesnt mean performance will be good.

the latency is very good

"4-3-3-12(DDR2 700)" most DDR2 533 ram are 4-4-4-12 @ 533 so that's very good imo

Nubius, by the way, how much does overclocking RAM help? Say you overclock from DDR400 to DDR533, will the difference be noticeable in everyday computing tasks, or is more for benchmarking?

ddr400=3.2 gb/sec bandwidth
ddr533=4.264 gb/sec bandwidth

the increase should be noticeable if your doing something that takes up more bandwidth then the usual stuff

Well every little bit counts, you'd have to do countless tests of things you run everyday to truly find out. But yes with good overclocking you can gain over 1gb/sec in data transfer which will help a lot opening programs, even running games.

Of course yes in benchmarks you get to see the actual numbers
