The price is listed as 290 Euros. $379. That's a lot of lettuce.

$328 is a better deal. But what's up with that screw that prevents the ZIF socket from opening?!

@ Cloasters that screw is basically the same thing as the locking arm used on most other sockets, but its a screw that you tighten instead.

A screw head on top of mainboard solder traces. WTF, over? It's been a while since I bought a m'board, are locking levers on ZIF sockets a thing of the past? Don't think I like that "set screw."

I'm sorry but showing me a sandra score does not blow my skirt up for a review. Send me the sticks and I'll give you a review in Intel rig that has a little kick. I think I can come up with more than just sandra. Too bad about this cuz this may well be just what the doctor ordered for many Intel users. I see so many people struglling with clocks when I would be willing to bet it is there memory most of the time. G.Skill 6400HZ is rated at 4-4-4-12 at DDR-800. I am running mine at 3-3-3-4 at DDR-850 daily
So if you want to find out what this new G.Skill memory can do. send it to someone who can actually put it through it's paces and see what it can do.
