    'cause its fun buying RAM faster than bus speed that your CPU uses, even if you try to overclock it?

    For the epeen. Competitive benchmarking, bragging rights, or just because someone can afford it. And it gets good coverage (advertising) for the manufacturer :)

    Just think, in a couple of years, that'll be entry level speeds :)

    I think quite a bit of the price goes towards the kingpin pot that comes with the ram. Well not a large chunk - but they certainly aren't cheap.

    Why does the branding matter?

    The perceived quality. So in this particular case I am assuming that 3GHz RAM has no place in the Vengeance range as the typical consumer of Vengeance RAM has not use of 3GHz therefore it should be put under the Dominator range. Correct me if I am wrong.

    Standard naked < XMS3 Classics < Vengeance < Dominator

    The latencies seem a bit high, surely that can't be good.

    That moment when you realize. It's probably Samsung RAM that ran 1333 @ 1.25v that is overclocked to 3000 @ 1.65v.

    That's my guess really. Those stock Samsung chips clock like mad.

    Yeah.... Someone will review them and pull one apart to discover it's something you can buy for much less.

    doubtful, these are probably some of the highest binned chips that corsair gets

    it might be possible, but very very unlikely

    it's like saying there's no point of getting a lotus exige just because you can get the same engine in a corolla, kinda
