:hello: 

I'm working on a new build and was wondering the communities input on what the best memory would be to pair with the following:

Intel Sandy Bridge i7 2600k
ASUS P8P67 PRO
Nvidia gtx 570

The computer is going to be used as higher end main stream/ enthusiast gaming and game developing computer.

Normally I'm a huge Corsair fan, but I must admit G.SKILL's new Ripjaws X is pretty darn good. I would look at the 1866 MHz DDR3, apparently I wasn't the only one they're all sold out.

Hope that helps.



so would the ram have to be clocked? Or would it be a plug n play operation?

Since there's no manual published, typically you set the AI OC Tuner -> XMP, and if needed the DRAM Frequency -> DDR3-1866MHz.

Cool thanks.

I'll keep you in mind so when I run into ram issues I'll give you a shout...

Newegg has some gskill ripjaws 2 x 4gb sticks for $79.99 after rebate with email promo code; runs at 1333 at 1.5v leaving some room for overclocking at 1.65v.
