I have a set of these I was thinking of returning. See below. They fit under my heatsink - Scythe Zipang. I was going to buy another set, but I read that it isnt good to buy sets of memory that wasnt tested together. Is that true, or should I just buy another set?
I have a Asus Crosshair iii Formula and AMD 965 BE 125w.
I'm sure that nobody in their right mind would want DDR3-1600 if they knew that the best DDR3-1600 they could afford used D9KPT chips...and that the same chips...without sinks...on 1333-rated modules...cost less and perform better.
In other words, it's a step down that cost more. You'd have to be some kind of clown to appreciate that move.
