Why didn't they have cool shit like this when I was younger and why are younger people that would buy this on Xbox's and Playstation 3's?

 

Seriously though, looks great for an enthusiast,  or a rich kid with more money than he should have, or overcompansating Red sports car drivers.  The enthusiast remark is serious, delete the rest.

 

I bet this will make Half Life, HL Opposing Force, and Blue Shift run smooth.

This is soooo overkill for any gamers looking for a performance increase.  Nowadays when you have 4gb of ddr3, stepping up to 8gb ddr3 etc makes little/no difference in your fps.  However, I'm sure video encoding and photoshop-y tasks would be perfect for such a huge amount.

Holy crap, 24GB. Maybe I'm not as hardcore (or rich) as the rest of you, but 8GB is pretty much all I've ever needed. Of course, that will change in the future but still...

this sounds cool but my nforce 790i only supports 8G :(

I've got the Rampage II Extreme, need to RMA it, hopefully they replace it with the Rampage III Extreme, but I know I'm not that lucky.  The RIIE supports up to 24GB of DDR3 in triple channel, so this is perfect for my mobo.

It's random insults like those that inspire hate-filled flames.

Finally, time to start saving up for this.

It even has its own cooling unit too. I never understood how RAM could run so hot that it would require it's own cooling system. 

Having that much memory (DDR3 no less) with that much speed is enough to make my brain explode xD

This is quite an incredible feat to get 24 GB of RAM to run at 2 GHz, just think if you could run these with an SSD!!! I would love to get my hands one just to see how much you could actually push it. And this product just isn't for gamers either people doing high amount of video/picture encoding/editing will see a dramatic improvement in performance as well.
