Our Review
It took us a while to get hold of one of these, but once we did we hooked it up with a Phenom II 715 (HDZ715WCJ3DGI) on an ASUS Motherboard. The performance especially while gaming is spectacular as you would expect from the Dominator Range. Our only gripe has nothing to do with technical abilities just that it was hard to get hold of and as it is so specific to a couple of CPU types the resale value will probably decline faster. With that in mind a more broad ranging version of the Dominator family would probably be a better buy.

Other Reviews
Craig SThis really is good memory, it has much faster memory timings than some in this range and that really does come through when you try and use it for gaming. I am not too struck on the AMD only thing but if you like AMD then its a must have. Try this, a Phenom II 1055T and an ATI/AMD 7950 and see if you can stop playing Modern Warfare 3.
Malcolm EIt really requires a Phenom II to get the best out of this memory, I tried it with both and although it was good with a Phenom it wasn't until I upgraded completely and turned it loose on a Phenom II 960T setup that it really did shine. If you are going to go the AMD route and have no intention of being drawn to the dark side (Intel) then I would recommend this memory 100%.
