Man, these naming schemes are stuck in the 90s. Super-ultra turbo RAM! Don't forget to recycle!

More like stuck in places like Japan, which have absolutely no imagination as a culture. Super high-ace, super turbo deluxe, and all kind of ridiculous names are all over that country on the back of cars and products.

DRAM prices are out of control right now. I bought 8GB of DDR3-1866 back in 2011 for $75 off Newegg. It's been 3 years and the same set of RAM is selling for $90.

I have a feeling the price of DDR4 is going to border on ridiculous for the first few years of production, regardless of manufacturer.

You could buy 16GB of DDR3 for $80 on newegg in 2012. All of this new ram is mostly useless for the average user anyway. Going from DDR2 to DDR3, I notice virtually any difference. A new HDD, CPU and GPU you certainly notice a difference.

I can't even fathom some of these speeds. My work PC is from 2007 and probably has PC6400 Ram or something like that in it.

2007, it will have DDR2

Always found Corsair RAM to always be a little too expensive for my tastes, when compared with the competition. Any word on price?

Corsair does have excellent customer support though. I managed to RMA an H80i five months after I bought because it was having a known issue. And there was some RAM I had to RMA and under the list of reasons, they had one where it was basically "I know what I'm doing and just want a replacement"... Which worked :3

If you have to RMA RAM, the company is not worth buying from. That is like saying, "I had to RMA a CPU". Motherboards, Hard Drives, Power Supplies are the usual junk that needs to be sent in for RMA, but even half of those RMA's are operator/builder error.

Every type of component is going to have a defect rate. No matter what company it's from. There has never been a failure proof manufacturing process for anything. Not to mention external variables after the product leaves the factory.

Uh. Sure. I'm sure RAM is supposed to have a 0% defect rate. Yup. Uh-huh.
