Maybe save for something better? A new gpu? An SSD? m 0 l TheBigTroll a b K Overclocking July 5, 2012 12:28:23 AM its 44.99 at newegg.ca. its cheap m 0 l Chainzsaw a b K Overclocking July 5, 2012 2:44:43 AM IMO spending 40 bucks on slightly higher clocked ram would be a waste, for around 1-2% difference.

I should have asked this in the first place, but are you trying to add more ram, or do you just want the extra "speed"? Also what set up do you have?

I thought you just wanted to go from 1600->1866 RAM. But since it's a new build, go for it. I looked up the compatibility with the Hyper 212 + Sniper and it should be good to go. Nice kit btw.
