I am going to buy a Ram kit. I want 6GB. The ones i have found are
G.SKILL F3-12800CL8T-6GBPI 6GB (3X2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800 1600MHZ PI SERIES TRIPLE CHANNEL KIT
VS
CORSAIR TR3X6G1600C9 XMS3 DDR3 6GB (3X2GB) PC3-12800 (1600MHZ) TRIPLE CHANNEL KIT

Both are 6gb at 1600mhz. the g.skill has better timings (8-8-8-21 vs 9-9-9-24) but i have read there is no diference
Which is better RAM??

of course G skill kit is better but if there is a big price difference then go for Corsair ones.

Get the g.skill then. I tend to prefer Corsair normally, but if the g.skill is faster and cheaper, go for it.

Corsair used to make the highest quality modules *ever* until they started swapping out high quality (D9 chips?) for cheaper ones on their XMS line. I use a 2x2GB set of XMS2 in my rig: Fast and stable... and I use a Corsair power supply (even though they're manufactured by Seasonic? :])... but G.Skill in this case is faster and cheaper. And they use D9 chips, which is good.

I think I'm gonna go back to a set of Kingston HyperX in my next build... even though they tend to be extremely expensive compared to other similarly fast units.

Nice post.

You read the thread title, assess the question, and then proceed to type a single word post that contains no relevant or useful information.

Good job.

Good job.


His post did in fact contain plenty of relevant information that is useful. The user was comparing 2 brands ignoring a third option of a cheap higher quality alternative ram kit by OCZ. His intention was clear to make the requester look into the third option. I should say that your post is the one that has no relevant or useful information since all you did was complain about his post... :o  .... What is worse... I am now just complaining about your post. :kaola:
