Help me pick some RAM please! Tags: Memory RAM Product Last response: April 21, 2010 11:17 AM in Memory Share Slipperss April 18, 2010 6:22:52 PM I need some good ram and i really got no idea of what to pick. My current built is like so: Mobo - ASUS P6X58D Premium(not clear) PSU - Corsair 1000w Cooler - Water RAM - *Missing* (Looking for some which would be best for my system) Case - Corsair 800D CPU - Intel Core I7-930 HDD - WD Caviar Black WD1001FALS GPU - 2x 5970 I thought about some Corsair Dominator's I heard these should be really good (Also really expensive) CMGTX2 These timings are really fast.. But it does also say "Ultra-low latency 4GB DOMINATOR GT kit optimized for Phenom-based DDR3 systems. 1600MHz, 6-6-6-18, 1.65V" http://www.corsair.com/store/item_view.aspx?id=979672 I could use some help picking the best ram for my system. (Cheapest and Best(more expensive) Also, i see alot of gamers with the P6T7 WS supercomputer mobo. Why is that? Could also need some help picking a gamer mobo (Cheapest and Best(more expensive) More about : pick ram ekoostik a b } Memory April 19, 2010 12:29:40 AM As far as RAM goes, I think you'll find the following three articles helpful: Core i7 Memory Scaling: From DDR3-800 to DDR3-1600 DDR3 On A Budget: Six 6 GB Memory Kits Memory Scaling on Core i7 - Is DDR3-1066 Really the Best Choice? JackNaylorPE a b } Memory April 19, 2010 12:59:53 AM Suggest you avoid Dominators, Ripjaws and other modules w/ tall heat sinks if you are going to Overclock. DDR3-1600 is overclocker's choice .... assuming not using LN2. AFter that its lowest CAS # you can afford. CAS 6 costs more and is faster than CAS7 and so on. CAS 6 Mushkin Redlines are low profile w/ 6-8-6-24 timings and go for about $250 http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E... CAS 7 CORSAIR Model CMX6GX3M3C1600C7 are low profile and go for bout $200 http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E... CAS 8 OCZ Gold Model OCZ3G1600LV6GK are low profile and go for about $158 http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E... CAS 9 is more expensive than CAS 8 of late so why bother These selections are based upon what's on the labe;l....often times modules perform better than their label and to save some $$ you might wanna scour the THG sample builds to see what they have ID'd. The supercomputer can do triple SLI / Xfire + PhysX (4 cards) so that's why it's popular w/ extreme gamers. The soon to be top dog is the Rampage III Extreme....release any day now I expect.
