I've read a little about this online, but what do you guys think? Given the choice between memory with Intel Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) or without it, what would you pick.

Example = New Corsair DDR3-1800 modules (one with XMP, one without)

They are the ones on the left hand side of the link above under DDR3 Modules. See, the ones that support XMP are cheaper, but that doesn't make sense if I understand XMP correctly.

Looks like a good thing to me. At least, I'd say its not a bad thing.
