Hi,

Here in Brazil i have the following memory options for my new build, from my local shop:

1) Kit DDR3 Geil GB36GB1600C8TC Black Dragon 1600MHz 6GB (3x2GB) - Price 469 R$

2) Kit DDR3 Corsair Dominator TR3X6G1866C9DF 6GB (3x2GB) - Price 669 R$

3) 3x Corsair XMS3 TR3X6G1600C9 (not a kit) - Price 3x159 R$ = 477 R$.

Motherboard will be a ASUS P6X58D-E with Core i7 950 and a thermalright IFX-14 (already have). My goal is a overclock around 4 GHz.

My first thought is option 1), is this a resonable choice?

I think Corsair is a better brand, but think that the price premium in option 2) is too great and i won´t need more than 1600MHz.
Option 3) price is ok, but is CL9 ram and is not a kit, so the modules maybe not well matched?

Thanks.

Three of a kind is all you need. Go for one of the cheaper options. I'm running 6 gigs of gskill and micron at 1600 with 9-9-9-24 timings, and it's plenty fast.
