  1. What was wrong with the Patriot RAM? That's a great price.

    Corsair

  2. I called amazon, and they said it would not ship for 1 to 3 months, i know i thoughtit was a great price till i saw i wouldhave to wait that long to get it. I was thinking about this one http://pcpartpicker.com/part/patriot-memory-pvi38g186c9k
  3. Wouldnt the one you suggested be slower than the other patriot sice the original one was 1866MHz, and also is the one i chose even compatible with the stuff?. I put the one i was thinking about on pcpartpicker.com and it said it was compatible with no problems found with all the other parts.

    The Corsair I linked costs less.

    Have a look at results of different speeds and make a decision
