  1. IMT451U6MFR8Y-DC0, single sided 4GB sticks.
  2. I contacted the seller to ask about those sticks last week and they did not reply to me. That said, maybe somebody not in the US will have better luck
  3. There were also 2400c8 Avexir sticks. I am aware of four sticks, and a lot more of the 2200c8, so I would guess the 2200s are the "rejects" of John Lam's operation.
  4. Agreed. Personally, my "wishlist" isn't really "kits I want to hoard in trays", that's useless to me, more like curiosities. It's why I use the phrasing of "novelty"; would be interesting to have, but I'm not really one for collecting (despite my spamming of this apparent collector post). The only reason I have a lot of rarer kits is because I have to bin them still, but I only intend to keep a handful around once all is said and done.
  5. No particular interest, I do ultimately want to get my hands on one of each IC (since it's hardly unprecedented for enthusiasts to discover a random IC that's actually useful, see Samsung 1Gb G), but I have a Pi Black 2000 9-9-9 kit of it. It was actually an accident, I didn't even notice they were 1GB sticks until I got them. Freegeek, I assume? That is a good deal, I myself got a lot of 2000-2200 sticks from them a while ago, haven't tested all of the sticks but the 2000 Ripjaws I got in that lot turned out to be excellent. Whether the blacklines are GT depends on the part number, I nabbed a kit of those when I was just getting into DDR3 and was a bit disappointed to find out they were JN. To be fair, I didn't actually pull the spreaders, but they weren't any good. Kingston also depends on the P/N: 2000C9D = 9-9-9 BBSE, 2000C9AD = 9-11-9 BDBG or BFBG, depending on production date. My wishlist was also enormous, but, well, with a lot of time, money, and patience, now the number of kits I have is enormous (a bit too enormous...) Well, shoot, now I have to talk about my favorite subject, insane (near-)vaporware bins. At least, my understanding of some. Near-vaporware (extremely limited): F3-19200CL8D-4GBPIS, 2400C8 Pi. Very good bin, source of some of the best air results I've ever seen (though I believe the particular kit I'm thinking of, which TaPaKaH had at the time, hated cold; air isn't everything), but I've seen kits that were merely "pretty good". Apparently was retail but I don't think there were more than like a dozen kits. F3-19200CL8Q-8GBZHD, 2400C8 Ripjaws Z, same deal as the Pi. Some insane sticks, very limited. As far as I know it was only quad kits, so that doesn't help things. F3-20000CL9D-4GBTDS, 2500 9-11-9 1.65V PSC. Found in an OC3D review. I would guess this exact spec didn't go retail, or if it did, insanely limited. F3-20000CL9D-4GBTDS, 2500 9-11-11 1.65V PSC. The only results I have a link to are from Hiwa, he claimed they were a retail purchase and sold out immediately. If some of those results truly were done with memory on air, that kit of his was golden. Demo/ES SKUs: F3-12800CL5Q-8GBPI, 1600 5-8-5 1.65V PSC. F3-16000CL6D-4GBFX(D?), 2000 6-9-9 1.65V PSC. Look like some sort of Reaper-Flare hybrid. F3-18400CL7D-4GBPID, 2300 7-10-10 1.65V PSC. I know where this kit is but only one stick is still alive. F3-20000CL8D-4GBTDS, 2500 8-12-8 1.65V PSC. Used by Hiwa at a Computex 2010 demo. I believe Andre Yang had a kit as well. Don't have a clear picture on hand. KHX2544C9D3T1FK2/2GX, 2544 9-11-10 1.65V BDBG. PR. F3-20800CL8D-4GBPIS, 2600 8-11-8 1.65V PSC. The "3" and "4" on the PCBs in the picture make me think there were at least two kits... Vaporware (don't have any concrete evidence of these existing, beyond people asking if it exists ) : F3-14400CL6D-4GBFLS, 1800 6-8-6 1.65V PSC. F3-18400CL9D-4GBTDS, 2300 9-9-9-24 1.65V BBSE.
  6. Some high bin and/or rare kits I own: D9GT - Corsair Dominator CM3X1024-1800C7DIN (1800 7-7-7 2V) - Definitely not as rare as the CM3X2048 version but one of the best bins Hyper - Corsair Dominator GT CMG6GX3M3A2000C7 (2000 7-8-7 1.65V) Hyper - SuperTalent Project X WX200UX6G7 (2000 7-7-7 1.65V) - A very aggressive XMP, though not sure on actual quality BBSE - G.Skill Ripjaws X F3-17000CL8D-4GBXMD (2133 8-9-8 1.65V) BBSE - G.Skill Ripjaws X F3-17600CL9D-4GBXMD (2200 9-9-9 1.65V) BBSE - Kingmax Hercules FLKE85F-B8KHA (2200 10-10-10 1.5-1.7V) - I don't think they're all that great but it's quite a high frequency BDBG - Kingston T1 KHX2250C9D3T1FK3/6GX (2250 9-11-9 1.65V), KHX2333C9D3T1FK3/3GX (2333 9-11-10 1.65V) and KHX2333C9D3T1K2/4GX (2333 9-11-9 1.65V) - high frequency Kingston bins, though not the highest PSC - G.Skill Pi F3-16000CL7D-4GBPIS (2000 7-9-7 1.65V) - Nothing special quality-wise, but seem to be rare simply due to a lack of sales PSC - G.Skill Pi F3-16000CL6D-4GBPIS and F3-16000CL6T-6GBPIS (2000 6-9-6 1.65V) - Very famous bin and was very popular back in the day due to the tight spec and some impressive kits found in this bin PSC - G.Skill Flare F3-16000CL7D-4GBFLS (2000 7-9-7 1.65V) - The highest bin of Flares, which are quite rare since they were made for AMD Rev.D - G.Skill Trident X F3-2666C10Q-16GTXD (2666 10-12-12 1.65V) - G.Skill's highest bin Rev.D - Corsair Dominator Platinum CMD16GX3M4A2666C10 (2666 10-12-12 1.65V) - The single best retail bin1 2Gb BFR - Corsair Dominator GTX8 CMGTX8 (2400 10-12-10 1.65V) - Useless for benching but a collector's item CFR - Kingston "Overclocker's dream memory" (2800 12-14-14-32 1.65V) - ES, have changed hands a couple times as a "kit" of 4, I believe there are 8-10 total but somebody can correct me if there are more MFR - G.Skill Trident X F3-2933C12D-8GTXDG (2933 12-14-14-35 1.65V) - High frequency MFR, though not G.Skill's highest Wishlist (retail or apparently retail; P.S. my PMs are open ) : D9GT - pretty much any well-binned 2GB sticks, they a bit harder to find than 1GB since it is such an old IC PSC/Hyper - Corsair GTX1-6 Hyper - Adata Extreme Edition v2 AD32133F002GM(O)U3K - novelty mostly, very high voltage spec and seems to be extremely rare BDBG - KHX2400C9D3T1FK2/4GX, Kingston's highest retail bin PSC - pretty much any of the high frequency (over 2200) bins, whether for novelty or quality depends on the particular kit (F3-18400CL8D-4GBPIS, F3-19200CL8Q-8GBZHD, F3-19200CL8D-4GBPIS, F3-19200CL9D-4GBPIS, F3-20000CL9D-4GBTDS, PVV34G2500C9K, etc.) PSC - F3-16000CL8D-4GBPIS - 2000 8-9-8 and not Corsair, lol, another case of seeming to be extremely rare simply due to a lack of sales. The one result I've heard was that it was garbage, but that won't stop me! Various SKUs interesting for other reasons -- using weird ICs (very old 512Mb kits), kits with an IC not usually meant for that model (BBSE 2000 8-8-8), etc. And maybe other stuff, this was off the top of my head And, obviously, there are lot of special demo/ES/etc SKUs that would be cool to own, or other rare bins that I'm not sure went retail, but the likelihood of getting most nowadays is nearly zero.
  7. Somebody was a little faster, reserved awaiting payment... will update if it becomes available again.
  8. For sale is a Z77 OCF with a 3570K socket protector. Good condition, only used the board for a few hours doing various testing. Never seen cold. $160 OBO shipped US (can quote international), PPFF preferred.
  9. Oh, I did buy some 2000 9-9-9 flares on the date of this post 😁 I have two kits, 1031 and 1039. They're pretty decent: In the worse 1039 pair, one stick is strong on tRCD (1100 6-9-6 8M, 1200 7-10-7 32M, 1300 8-11-8 32M), both are fine on voltage but not "strong." In the better 1031 pair (the one you're asking about), they're not quite so tRCD-strong (8M/1M 1300 tRCD11), but do pass 1333 8-12-8 tight at 1.86V which I was impressed with -- definitely my best 2000C9 at the time (though now I have found some very similar Ripjaws) I happened to see that you got some more patriots recently, hope they perform well for you T/R I don't think ever made it into 2000 9-9-9, only 2000 9-10-9, and the highest was 2200 9-11-9 as far as I know. (Also, just to be pedantic, the X/T/R system doesn't mean what "common wisdom" thinks it does 😉. But that's a discussion for another time.)
  10. I have a kit of 2133 9-11-9 patriots. PSC, but not any good.
