I can't think of a single reason why 1600 won't be supported, but even if it isn't, buying now would be a bad move. If the deal seems too good to pass up, find a way to test the RAM before the RMA window is closed. If the test results are favorable, store the RAM in its original packaging, and then seal it in an anti-static bag.
No I agree.......it was more that there was a "great deal" on that RAM at $50 vs $90 generally.
I guess I'll just wait and see what "great deals" they have on RAM in January once SB chips are available and I'm ready to buy my system. Will feel silly if I spend $50 now and then something is wrong, and I can't return it, and I have to buy RAM twice.
