Hi there!

I was looking at these two sets of ram:


CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TR3X6G1333C9 - Retail

CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model TR3X6G1333C7 G - Retail

The difference in price is only $15.00 and the expensive one seems much better, but I don't know which one to get because of the number of reviews (I know its kinda stupid, but still...) The cheaper set has like 70 reviews while the other one has only 5... If the 15 bucks were worth, maybe the expensive one would have more reviews???

Anyways, what do you think???

And would it pair good enough with an ASUS P6X58D Premium???

Thanks a lot!

I would go with the more expensive one. It has a Cas latency of 7, while the other is 9. 7 is faster than 9. If you have the money for it, go with the cas 7.

That is between these two. As far as the amount of money you are spending, you might have other better options as well. I am only giving my opinion between these 2 choices though. :)
