16 won't help much, unless u have a phobia from futureproofing! but it wont. that ripjaws x won't help either(for now).
you can buy a corsair xms3 or a set of ripjaws of1666mhz.
even the ripjaws X model u wer saying abt...it works at stock speed of 1666mhz. "i have a pair".
8 gb is enuff.
those classy looking heat spreaders don't work magic unless you have one side of your case open!
she looks beautiful BTW.
if u believe your ram sticks r gonna stay fit for that long. GET THEM.
ITS USELESS if not!
I read an article which said over 1600 has little benefit. I just got 2133 because they were $5 more, but with a 4.4GHz o/c on my CPU, I actually run them at 1600 with tighter timing (it was more stable that way) and I get similar Maxmem scores as at 2400 with looser timing.
