Corsair (XMS Series) > 
Item#: N82E16820145185

Pros:

Beautifully finished aluminum heatsink and proprietary PCB. Very fast and tight timing with CAS Latency: 7-7-7-20. Run and play very well on my Asus P5E3 Premium WiFi @ n mother board (intel X48 board). These Corsair RAMs are the best of the best!

Cons:

Price! Very expensive since DDR2 are still mainstream. I paid $505.00 for these over this summer. Now, these are over $100.00 below what I have paid... kinda sucks if you're an enthusiast.

Other Thoughts:

These module of Corsair are only capatible with Intel X48 chipset and the a few Nvidia chipsets. Do your homework and check for the qualifying mother boards that support these RAMs with this CAS Latency. Example: Intel X38 chipset does not officially support these RAMs... hence, one must resort to overclocking the FSB frequency in order to obtain a 1:1 bus-ram ratio.
You MUST input the CAS Latency (7-7-7-20) in the BIOS manually. I hope this bit of info clear up some of the frustrations for everyone.
