ADATA emailed and, like G.Skill before them, iterated appreciation for our candor, so that's two for two manufacturers that actually listen to their feedback. Whether it will affect things in the grand scheme of things is doubtful, but both of their reactions were admirable.

On the plus side, the price for this kit just dropped drastically, so I added an Author's note to the end of the article and updated the pricing.

Author's Note - ADATA has adjusted the price of these kits and the article is edited to reflect that change. They went from their previous $364.99 (gold) & $359.99 (gray) to both kits retailing for $299.99. In their category, that makes this kit from ADATA especially tempting. Still not where they should be in terms of performance, but if you're looking for a frequency clocking kit, this is a good price for it.

Those unfortunately are based on Samsung 4Gbit ICs which are pretty much capped to 2550MHz or if you're really lucky, 2600MHz.

still better than 1600 in nearly the same price ;) ... 1600 is probably on similar IC , maybe lower binned and not guaranteed 2400+

I have 2 kits of the samsung mini rams rated 1600 11-11-11 that will do 2700 and 2750 on ivy. are dual sided and seem to be a great value, though no longer avialable in retail channels
