Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD7 and Gskill F3-12800CL8T-6GBRM


I have read thread about this configuration but ezz1r did not decide to buy F3-12800CL8T-6GBRM and I need some help.

I have the same Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD7 revision 1.0 and Intel Core i7 920 LGA 1366 d0 revision

but I don't want to go in expensive PC3 16000 memory like Trident F3-16000CL9T-6GBTD (2Gx3)

and I want to buy something exactly like this one

they are not on vendor list so I need to know it will be work fine.

Maybe it is easy question but I have only one chance to shoot and buy them. I'm completing computer for my girlfriend and you know what that means. Good choose or death.

  1. Hi syczunio and welcome to THG.

    This G.Skill PI 1600 are a little better and has very good reviews.

    Regarding to the RAM that u selected, if the RAM isn't in the QVL that doesn't mean that the RAM don't works with the mobo that only means that the mobo's manufacturer don't tested the mobo with that model.
  2. Thank you for quick answer,

    I'm glad that you're telling me about G.Skill Pi but in my country for them I have to paid 33$ more then for those G.Skill Ripjaws and another 66$ for G.Skill Trident F3-16000CL9T-6GBTD.

    I've read about them and there is no big reason to go in 2000mHz memory. According to tests I should find something with 1600mHz because I wont fell such big difference (it's not my own opinion).

    I'm looking only for some G.Skill memory so is there worth to pay this 33$ extra money for those Pi?

    In this computer there wont be more memory then 3x2Gb.

    It's not about buying something cheap but buying well so that's why I've come to this forum, first time in my live :)

  3. IMO the $33 more are a good investment and those PI series are very stable with OC that trust me u want to learn with that rig.
  4. Hi, It's hard to say something about that because I find some tests for those memories and Ripjaws on Intel i7 920 revision d0 with I'am going to.

    Cooling for procesor there will be Prolimatech Megahalems Rev. B and NOCTURA NF-P12 120/120/25 FAN.

    I can say, there was the same results for botch memories for over clock i7 920 D0.

    I can't find any real argument to pay 33$ for nothing special. I'm not going to comparing computer with some winrar/memory test so there is no point to buy them (according stuff what I've read).

    I've read on g.skill forum that there is no difference on over clocking i7 920 D0 for both memories.

    I'm replaying just now because I have to check Yours suggestion and I cant agree with them:(
