The model number is VSA4GSDSKIT667C4 and can supposedly save you 20% or more in memory resources.

See this video for details. http://www.channelflip.com/2008/06/2...-memory-boost/

Anyone using this? Can you notice a significant difference in speed/resources? Is it worth the price?

Thanks!

While lower memory latencies will certainly improve performance, it will only do so in memory intensive programs. The difference is not noticeable in everyday usage.

However, even if you want the fastest performance, that Corsair memory is horribly overpriced. You can get similar low latency memory from other companies, such as G.Skill, for much less.
