    interesting i didnt think it would be that much


    my home server was built in an attempt to balance power usage with power! i haven't tried dropping the memory voltage down yet but hopefully i can get the idle to drop a few watts (5 would be nice to get me under 100w)

    Hmmm... I wonder what happened to Geil's 1.35 modules? Eitherway, I'm definitely interested in lower power modules!

    :D

    But, can the lower voltage memory handle fast speeds and timings? What about overclocking? If it's just as capable as current modules then there's no problem, but usually performance for power draw is the trade-off anyone has to make.

    What are the chances some of these kits are failed/downclocked 1.65v 1800mhz+ kits?
