Gees, I'm so lost and got really no clue of what rams to take, i have read several reviews and stuff, and it just doesn't help me, so if any of you guys would consider my build, overclock and whatnot and chose the best ram for me, it would be appreciated very much!

Ask if you need to know anything.

Mobo - ASUS P6X58D Premium

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 - Samsung F3 Spinpoint

GPU - 2x 5970

OS - Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

And i'm gonna OC the CPU to about 4ghz.

That HDD is awfully expensive, could practically get a good SSD for that price.

And I thought i was supposed to go for the lowest CAS, I'm so confused.

Yeah, but that Velociraptor is awesome.

Now, a lower CL means a better RAM, but usually that RAM can't OC very well. That's why I give you two options, if u don't want OC the RAM go with the CL6, but if you want OC your RAM as your CPU and GPU, go with the PI series.

Well I can't find the thread, but another brands are Corsair, Crucial, OCZ, Mushkin and Kingston (only the HyperX series) are very good too.

Would you be so kind to help me pick some Corsair RAM that are good for OCing, for me? :3
April 22, 2010 3:11:45 PM

I hope these are close to the best i can get :3

Bumping for great justice and insecureness. Still got a few questions and stuff before i purchase anything.
Could anyone confirm that the corsair Ram that Saint19 picked out is somewhere the best/fastest/most reliable i can get for OCing?

is it 2X5970

hows it possible
April 23, 2010 7:33:15 PM

I'm not sure what you mean with "hows it possible"
Its really annoying when people doesn't don't explain themselves very well and derails my question/thread.

Sorry for repeating, but I need to know.
