Hey guys i have a question, will this memory work on my asus rampage 3 formula board:Corsair XMS3 CMX6GX3M3A2000C9 6GB 3X2GB DDR3-2000 CL9-9-9-24 1T Core i7 Triple Channel Memory Kit.
Its on this website:http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=53609
If both of these are compatable which one would be better to get? One is a 2133 and the other is a 2000 but one is a 6 GB while the other comes only in 4 GB..i am confused as to go for 6GB one or go for the faster one?
In case you guys are wondering my specs:
Asus rampage 3 formula mobo
2 X 570 SLI
2 gb kingston 1033 memory (right now)
intel 950 3.7 ghz
Thanks and if need more info id be happy to provide!
Of the two you have listed I would go for the Corsair. I have that kit in mine and it does well and I like the low profile of the ram which won't interfere with large heat sinks.
Before I got the Corsair kit I tried a 1600 cas6 Mushkin set of low latency ram that wouldn't run stable at 1600 or above no matter the timings. So I looked at the QVL list for the board and the Cosair was listed. It will run 1750 or so cas8 with decent voltages (qpi/vtt under 1.4) and rated voltage for the ram. The thing with the high speed ram they don't tell you is at what qpi/vtt it needs to run that speed which can be as high as the ram itself which is too high for me to feel safe for 24/7 use.
Thank you all three of you for answering and clearing up my question. All three of you guys had something to add and for that thank you. I will choose wiini for the best answer since he was first but again thanks to all three of you guys. I now know exactly what to get and far less cheaper too!
