    Are you planning on expanding your storage solutions into the mobile market (in terms of being a provider of RAM for ODMs)? What about expanding to SSDs? Finally what is patriot doing to keep ahead of its competition?

    By the way I loved the first gen gauntlet.

    Ive always been under the impression that heat spreaders on system ram were, for the most part at least, not all they were cracked up to be. A lot of them are put on with double sided tape and actually increase heat rather than decrease it. Is that true and are there any plans to improve their use that doesnt involve pointy heat sink fins stabbing me in the fingers?

    Is DDR4 memory the only thing to be looking foward to in replaceing ddr3 memory ? a few other types of memory have poped up over the years and id like to know if there is an alternative to the seemingly slight improvement of the DDR series memory ? it saddens me to know that if cutting my latencies in half would be a better solution for my need for speed if my system wouldnt fail or getting a quad channel capable rig. i know lowering energy costs is the argument for the "improvement" but seems negligible compared to the computer system as a whole and simply having a much higher energy efficient PSU.

    Are you guys trying to move to a faster memory setup, or more memory in general for your memory cards?

    Will you have 16 GBytes (or even 32 GB) memory modules soon? I would love to populate my system with 4x16GB sticks to get a total of 64 GBytes of ram.

    Will there ever again be memory with good timings to go along with high frequency? I miss the good ole ddr3-1600cl6 and ddr3-2000cl7 days.
