Hey guys, this might have been asked before, but i'm still gonna ask:

What few good OC'ing rams (DDR3 1600MHZ) are out there to buy? More than likely i'm gonna be wanting to OC 2000MHz. :p 

I've personally used Kingston and OCZ, which none have failed me - but the OCZ doesn't OC very far (was ddr2 though).

So any suggestions for good ddr3? xD And on a side note, how good is mushkin memory? =P

Edit: Oh yeah, triple channel, and prefferably 12GB? lol

1. 12GB is too much!

2. For me the best Oc'ing RAM is GSkill, high quality chips and can be OC'ed really well. Next would be Mushkin and Patriot.

1600MHz is good enough for OC'ing!

1. True, but if i already have 6GB, i believe an "upgrade" is in order xD

2. GSkill: Me likey ;D. Well then Mushkin must not be all that bad, hmm. (Patriot definitely!)

Well i want 1600Mhz stock. So it won't exactly be OC'ed to begin with =P.

Well if you already have 6GB then the question of matching the new RAM's to the old RAM's comes into the question. What's the RAM that you currently have?

Oh pffft - it's ddr2. I don't upgrade as in adding - i meant upgrade as in replacing. I'm working on my new build and my old one is based of the LGA775 suckit - i mean socket. lol.

The new board will be using ddr3, but since my old build already has 6GB, i want 12GB this time lol.

^^That is the 6GB version of the same RAM which i mentioned above. Only thing is the 12GB one comes with the cooler.

LOL I lmao-ed when i saw this.

Oops, some explanation: PC-12800 - DDR3 1600, means it's overclockable to 1600 Mhz. By default it's maybe detected 1333 first in the BIOS. Dunno, but some of these PC-12800 can be overclocked to 1800Mhz too.

If, you want 2000 Mhz, it's PC-16000. Then I recommend G.Skill Ripjaws series.

or, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... not Ripjaws, but G.Skill claims this to use better chips than Ripjaws.
