Hi, i noticed in a review by anandtech that the OCZ gold pc3700 revision 2 dimms are single-sided, whereas the original were double sided. i also noticed the revision 2 were much cheaper than the original. So, what is the difference between the single sided revision 2 dimms and the original OCZ gold? is there a performance difference?

the original ones were rated at tighter timings, so possible using more expensive memory chips!

so do those timing differences result in a performance hit? or is the revision 2 just like the original ones?

the rev2 uses other memory chips which don't yield overclock results as the older did. they had to make a 2nd revision because the supply for the chip used in the first batch were no longer available, or available in lesser extend, that translates into a higher price. as you have already noticed.
