Very true. Proper cooling. Still, OCZ claims this ram doesn't even need active cooling! Now, I'm not dumb enough to believe that, but again, Marketing.
Also keep in mind that I had 4 sticks and you know how close they are in the slots, so I am getting one of those purpose-built ram coolers when my RMA comes back.
I'm not convinced the mobos are to blame for ram dying and even reading nVidia's response, it's seems pretty clear that they also think 2.4v is too much for DDR2.
Oh well, one of the main reasons I bought 4 sticks was so that I wouldn't be completely dead in the water should I lose one or two, and as was said, OCZ warantee on these is lifetime at 2.4v :-)
