|Joe_Key||This would be a good deal if I didn't just get 16gb of Corsair 1600 Vengeance for $90 a couple weeks ago.|

This line of GSkill memory has been nothing but good to me in OC; I have a both the 2x2gb and 2x4gb bundles in my and my wife's computers. Minor NB voltage increases have consistently netted a stable 2x800mhz, even on my cheap boards, so getting to 1600mhz really is a stone's throw. I haven't tried to push much farther, but I wouldn't be surprised to see a lot more at closer to 1.6v.
I know that overclocking isn't everyone's cup of tea, but in a lot cases it's a nearly-free efficiency boost.
Decent memory article on SB http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/...dy-bridge/ -- I don't have any great IB articles TBH, but I reckon that there are plenty of folks on here still playing in 32nm land. Hell, my daily-use boxes are still 45 .
TL;DR: 1333mhz memory clock wouldn't deter me if I were in the market, and even with modern architecture there are rapidly diminishing returns in increased memory clocks under real-world use. If you're a benchmark whore you'll only be happy with low-latency, 2133 bits anyway.

I just assume it to be regular unless it says otherwise. But that's just me
And here are some SB memory articles for you girls to fight over:

Since the memory controller moved to on-die, RAM speed is EVERYTHING. There is some diminishing returns after a certain speed, but you still see a nice gain.

of course it fits for SoDimm, but it also fits for regular ram.

Part of me longs for 32gb even though there is no good reason to. I don't even bottom out the 8gb I have now...
History repeats itself and it's a riot. Remember when 1mb was plenty? 4mb? 8? 16? 32/64/128/512/1gb/2gb/4gb/8gb etc etc etc. In 10 years our computers will probably have 1TB of ram. Go bloatware!
I just had a flashback to 1996 when 64mb of ram (SDRAM! Sweet....) cost me $200 and that was a hot deal. I was pimpin the 200mhz Pentium to the max!
