    Thank you so much Mickypheonix. what is the best brand to buy 4 numbers of 8gb ddr3? As I would like to upgrade my pc.
  3. Best answer
    Corsair , Mushkin ,Kingston, gskill
    I personally use all mushkin ram but that is only a matter of preference , all these brands have lifetime warranty and good reputation
    Mushkin is cheaper than most of these but overclocks well and i have never had an issue with multiple rigs and different setups, it is what i recommend to friends wanting to upgrade
  4. for your setup if you want to go with 1866mhz then get a low cas latency , cas 9 or lower

    Thanks and Sorry Mickypheonix, I couldnt get this line. "then get a low cas latency , cas 9 or lower"
  6. if you are going with 1866mhz try to get ram with a cas latency of 9 or lower

  9. The highest speed ram you can put in your motherboard is 1866mhz , the ram timings have a lot to do with how fast the memory can communicate with your cpu, this will help explain timings ,

    Amen :)
  14. If going 32GB, migtht want to rethink and save some money - the FX 8150 is rated "UP to 1866 at 1 DIMM per channel", or 2 DIMMs total, (and they don't say, but the testing was done with 4GB sticks)...if going to try 32GB (4x8GB) the highest I would spend money on would be 1600, and even then have it in mind that 1333 might be the highest you can run

    Here's an optimistic guide from AMD ;)
