From my understanding correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't need an SB-E supported Mobo to get these sticks to work. All I need is a Mobo that has 4 memory slots and a Mobo that supports those clockspeeds? Just thought I'd check as I am a huge fan of G-Skill stuff and I'd love the RipjawsZ 1866Mhz set.

That's right. There really is no difference between dual and quad-channel when it comes the memory modules. Since there are four sticks in this kit you can run them in any DDR3 motherboard in dual channel mode.

The same works for SB-E. Instead of buying a quad-channel kit you can use matching dual channel kits and they will be set to quad-channel mode when being used with SB-E.

have you guys tested some 1.25v kits? for instance, the g-skill sniper? link.

No, the lowest voltage kit we have received so far is 1.5v.

dang. you guys should look in to it. ive always suggested low voltage kits for their (supposed) lower heat and power consumption, but it would be nice if someone could see what kind of real differences there are...especially with the overclocking potential.

I will try to see if we can get something.

Even though I have Kingston, I <3 G. Skill.

One question though: why isn't the built-in Winrar benchmark being used? It's memory-bound, it's easier to bench something that way and it's something more "comparable" in contrast to a custom file based benchmark.

The memory is standard DDR3, it is the memory controller on the CPU that determines the number of memory channels.
