has anyone had any experience -good, bad or indifferent- using Patriot Viper II DDR3 SDRam with the x58 mobo? Patriot doesn't have gigabyte listed as one of the tested mobos though with some forum entries on their site a couple of folks attest to their compatiblity. main reason i'm looking at this ram is the price point and a pretty attractive specs. on sale at newegg with some other discounts, the trio of sticks totals out to $105.
incidentally, it's a damn shame memory is so much more expensive than a year ago. i haven't explored what precious commodity figures into that dramatic fluctuation but one would think & hope that it would be the other way around as time lingers on and improved sticks are introduced to the market.
