I'd go the Tridents, been using them for IB and Haswell as primary sticks for over a year and a half, have yet to see a set without OC headroom, so very strong sticks, haven't used a ton of the V-Pros but wasn't overly thrilled, tend to need looser advanced timings so not quite up there performance wise

But Im worried about the voltage being 1.6v will that cause any problem

No, I stick with 1.5 for 1866 and under, then 1.6-1.65 is fine for 2133 and up (Intel even certifies the higher voltage sticks) they recommend 1.5 as pertaining to the native DRAM freq of their CPUs (i.e. IB CPUs are native 1333 and Haswell CPUs are native 1600), I generally always use2133 and up for client builds currently, and some with 1866, haven't used under that since the the early Sandy Bridge builds

The Trident line was targeted for Haswell, and released far earlier but only up to 2400 initially, I got my 2400 set when they were released in May of 2012 and popped them in with my IB build (in sig, the 3570K), while waiting for Haswell to come out, GSkill was accumulating the high quality chips that have gone in to the 2666, 2800 and up sticks....All work extremely well with Haswell, have tried most all of the sets on my Hero and other client builds

TheUnknownPC beware, all the new production of the TridentX that is currently in the market especially the 2400 CL10 kits are:

Single-Sided using high density 512mbit ICs that run at a ridiculously high tRFC of 313

the results are, as apposed to the old double-sided TridentX they are much slower as the tRFC of 313 that they need to run stable makes the primary timings almost ineffective

Also being a single rank kit contribute to the slowness because rank interleaving will not work as it does for the double-sided memory to access all ranks simultaneously making it faster in the same way dual channel configuration does

Also this new single-sided kits that are currently in the market are dull as hell when it comes to overclocking, they can not even boot at anything above 2400mhz .. not even when you try to run at CL9 instead of CL10

i am not sure about the vengeance pro but i tell you, the old tridenX production was awesome, very fast and could clock to the roof, the new single-sided high density line is nothing like it, in my opinion it is garbage when it comes to enthusiasts kit standards and not worth its money, even though they look great and the company has knowledgeable and responsive support.

I had the new production of Kingston HyperX predator 2400mhz to test as well, they were still single-sided one rank kits so still very slow compared to the double-sided bandwidth, but the easily ran at 2666mhz while the Tridentx could not move a bit above 2400mhz

Keep this information in mind when you shop for TridentX these days!

Alright ..

how to identify single form double sided rank RAM ?

Also tell me please this one refer to which model of TRIDENTs ??

http://

And, how about vengeance high profile, RED or BLUE RAMs ?

Finally, which RAMs are good for OCing ?


Thanks ..
