Why are Gskill rams recommended? Tags: Memory Corsair Product Last response: May 29, 2010 7:16 AM in Memory Share Pharaun May 28, 2010 1:08:40 PM Hey guys, I've checked the recommended builds forum and looked at other system builds around and saw that Gskill rams are used a lot. Even in gamer enthusiast builds. I'm building a new system and I wanted to go for Corsair rams because I heared they were good, but now that I see Gskill rams everywhere I can't help but ask, should I go for them instead of Corsair? The system I'm thinking to buy is going to be ATI\AMD and I'll go for 4gb which isnt too expensive. Thanks More about : gskill rams recommended Lutfij a b } Memory May 28, 2010 8:29:55 PM take a look at this - http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/dual-channel-ram-dd... at the end you'll see this : "We recommend G.Skill’s Trident DDR3-2000 specifically for mid-budget overclockers who believe in the importance of memory speeds beyond those we’ve found to be beneficial to program performance." IMO - they cost the same over at amazon.co.uk but on US sites (newegg) they are cheaper. Thus the recommendation. The same goes for the CPU cooler - Hyper 212+ since it has the best bang for buck. Personally i use/prefer OCZ but the same will be for Corsair, they are a tad bit expensive but they are bleeding fast!
