DDR3 1866/1800/1600/1333/1066

Define "Max Out" - My definition by knowing that MOBO is 1800 MHz with 3X4GB in Tri Channel. {Optimal Speed + Performance} However, anything above 1600 MHz with low CAS is going to be extremely costly and would require extensive CPU wayer cooling to be of any use.

My recommendation for your MOBO / CORSAIR DOMINATOR 12GB (3 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) CMP12GX3M3A1600C9 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Big Budget "Max Out" $1,100 - https://shop.corsair.com/store/item_view.aspx?id=141869...

3X4GB 1600 MHz - http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E...(3%20x%204GB)
3X4GB 2000 MHz - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
{And, yes you can run 2000 MHz on your MOBO}

Inefficient Hexa Channel"max out"
CORSAIR DOMINATOR-GT 12GB (6 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1866 with Airflow Fan Model CMT12GX3M6A1866C9 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Good Luck!

sounds good. What I don't understand yet is why the Ripjaws http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

is more affordable if I purchased 3x Ripjaws wouldn't that work as well?

^ I added some above.

The {F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL} is a dual channel. You "really" want matched Tri or Hexa Channel sets, but as I mentioned Hexa is less efficient that Tri Channel.

Thank you for the advice. It looks like I might be spending more money in other areas and so I am hoping possibly to get away with 2x 4GB of the best memory for my motherboard at this time and buy additional sticks later. Do you have a suggestion for the 2x 4gb?

^ Yeah don't do it.

Also, I don't recommend the GA Sabertooth. Instead I would recommend the ASUS P6X58D-E with TR3X6G1600C8D. Your way cost = $390 ; Better way cost = $410 - > resulting in 6 GB Tri Channel & better MOBO and guaranteed to work :D  vs problematic :??:  .

thanks a lot bro.

Do you have a link for purchase of these items? Is it a combo?

and what is better about the MB your suggesting?



edit: I see now. Although the sabertooth is only $379 with that memory vs $409 with the MB you suggested unless I am doing something wrong here..

Now that I look at the specs of the Motherboard you suggested, I see that it is superior.

I still do not see how I can pay $390 for it with the memory though (need someone to show me this)

$230 + $180 = $410 Jaquith // $200 + $190 = $390 ggsxt. I'm not looking at the rebates or combos. BTW if considering the i7 930 get the i7 950 for $20 last time I checked.

ASUS P6X58D-E vs Sabertooth - the Sabertooth is built-off the UD3R/UD5 specs and has a known H/W flaw with SSD + RAID and or SSD + multiple HDDs whereas the ASUS P6X58D-E doesn't.

Good Luck!
