    Hope my order date gets moved up.
    I also hope I can find someone that will trade a 32gb kit for both of my 16gb kits and come cash.

    I just received an email from amazon saying mine will probably be arriving april 4th as well. I previously only had 8GB of ram and saw this amazing deal for 16GB dunno what I'm gonna do with all this extra ram since I never used maybe over 4-5GB at a time.

    Both mine shipped also.

    Will be hard to fight the temptation to build something with all this RAM in the closet. :p

    EDIT: I wonder if this stuff overclocks very well. Could be worth swapping my current 32GB for 16GB if I could actually gain some speed from the stuff...

    Mine are probably gonna be here either tomorrow or Friday. According to tracking history, it looks like it's pretty close to me, so I don't see why it couldn't be here Tomorrow... but then again I've seen delivery companies literally do what looks like just dawdling around for a certain amount of time... just because all they have to do is get it to me by the estimated.

    I guess this should be a lesson: If something is on Amazon and it's for a ridiculously low price that looks like a pricing error... TAKE IT ANYWAY, because it doesn't matter either way. Nothing to lose.

    Same! Actually plan on splitting it up between two machines, so I RAM'd them both for $27 apiece ;)

    Mine will be here today but I honestly have no idea what I'm going to do with it. Probably trade it as I'm in need of a graphics card. My main is loaded up with 32gb and even my mame cab/piddle rig is 16gb. I couldn't pass it up though.

    I don't think I've ever seen RAM come in a cardboard box before. It's tempting to open mine, but I'm going to leave them sealed in case I don't find a use.

    I haven't seen it either but it sure makes it safe for travel.

    I need to test the ram and make sure it works.

    Anyone open the box up yet? I'm tempted to see what it looks like inside. I don't want to open it =) It's just a white box with the ballistix black and grey sticker on the outside. I'm also surprised I don't see any one the bay!

    It is standard for Crucial. My old DDR2 1066 came in a brown cardboard box.

    Interesting. It just threw me off for a second because my Ballistix Sport VLP came in the standard plastic packaging.

    P.s. Also hoping someone opens theirs up! I've already packed it with the rest of my unused parts and don't want to take it out again. For now. :p

    Installed the kit tonight, and ran out pass of Memtest86. I feel like a criminal getting the memory at the price I got a 2x4GB kit two months ago!
