If this keeps up, 8Gb's in a PC could become the new norm.

I am running Crucial 4gb (2x2gb) 1333Mhz rated at CL6 and the replacements are now CL7. It looks like most if not all 4gb sticks are now all CL9 so it will take a major speed bump to make up the CL difference. My sticks are rated for 1.8v and it looks like most of the newer chips are at 1.5v or 1.65v so I think this is why the CL has gone up. My next build will probably be a Bulldozer which will handle DDR3 1866 as default so the CL9 should be OK. Since it is predicted for Ram prices to fall in the 4th quarter it looks like perfect timing for a new Bulldozer build. Everytime I work on the wife's laptop I complain how slow it is and she is now convinced. So I can now build me a new rig and give her my old rig which to her is super fast. Things are a lot easier when you lay a good foundation.

I don't see any advantage with Socket 2011 it will only come in the common 4 cores and newer 6 cores which you can buy today in socket 1366. I highly doubt that a 1366 - 3.4 Ghz Hex core will be outdated in 3 years, scratch that 4 years, quite possibly 5 years.

The first sitck of RAM was $50 a meg--yes a meg not a gig. That has been quite a few years ago.

$50 per meg? I remember when 256 K - (that's kilobytes for you younger folks who never saw anything that small) went for about $400.00 CDN.

On topic, for those looking for some good RAM that works flawlessly in an AMD rig, I've always had good luck with the Mushkin Blackline series. I've got 8GB of DDR3-1600 in my rig, and I haven't had so much as a hiccup in over a year. If I remember right, the CL is around 6 or 7 for these babies, and they run with 1.63V. (I just checked, the timings are 7-7-7-20 @ 1600)

I had some of their DDR2 RAM in my old rig, and I pushed it pretty hard and it never failed. The wife has them now, but she made me slow them down. lol

I will use the Mushkin RAM to recommend to people with AMD RAM issues.

A lot of people are having serious issues with running RAM at 1600MHz on AMD CPU/motherboards.
What settings did you use?
Any 'special' tricks?

No doubt it'll go up in Australia. We have outrageous prices down here.
