    What is your system spec? Is it Core i7 built? If it is then go for 6GB (3x2GB) package.

    Patriot-Gaming 6GB DDR3 1600 would be great but I would go for the chepest in the list.
  2. Yeah its an i7 920 w/ a Asus p6t Deluxe MB

    The prices are as followed, high due to AU pricing.

    6GB Kit DDR3 2000 G.Skill-Trident $225

    * CAS Latency: 9-9-9-24
    * Voltage: 1.65 Volts

    6GB Kit DDR3 1600 Patriot-Gaming $208

    * Memory Timings: 9-9-9-24
    * Voltage Settings: 1.65V

    6G Kit DDR3 1600 Patriot-Signature $175
    6G Kit DDR3 1600 Kingston / G.Skill NQ $175 / $208

    Couldn't find timings or voltage settings for other 3 :(
    Going off a very rudimentary sales site.

    Any further opinions
  3. Timings and voltage please. You must not choose a memory without knowing the timings and voltage. If you do, you are making an uniformed choice.

    interesting... what timings are good for DDR3 1333 memory, as i'm buying a new board and cpu... cpu= i3 530
  6. Basically you are looking for a combination of the fastest (lowest) timings and lowest voltage. Timings of 9 are average for 1600mhz memory, 7 for 1333mhz.
    Unless you are planning on overclocking your processor quite a bit, I would opt for the 1333mhz with timings of 7, over 1600mhz memory with timings of 9.
  7. thanks a lot
