  1. G.Skill has introduced its new "ECO" ultra low voltage memory modules today. Specifically designed to be coupled with Intel's Lynnfield Core i5 and Core i7 processors, the ECO memory runs at only 1.35V. This is 18% less VDIMM than the current standard voltage (1.65V) of DDR3 memory made for Intel's newly released platform.

    G.Skill seems to be OK.
    However the warranty seems to depend on where you make your purchase... from 1 year to 2 years to lifetime... Their price is right, but I don't consider G.Skill competitive with several other brands and modules.

    I like G.Skill. They are a great brand.

    Plus that RAM has an awesome looking heat spreader

    i wonder if this translates to better overclocking ability.

    For what it's worth the only RAM brands I've used so far have been Corsair, Crucial and G. Skill, not that other brands of RAM aren't good too. I have no complaints with G. Skill.

    I am using G. Skill DDR2 on my PC, over a year, not one issue.
    I haven't had RAM crap out in several years.
    I've always been happy with Mushkin, also.
