Hi guys,

Building a new i5-2500k setup, still working on the motherboard because it's so hard to find one I want in stock. Anyway, I've been looking at different types of RAM to buy, and I found a combo deal on one that I really liked that had this RAM in it:

I really liked that RAM, and I was going to buy it but it hasn't been available any time I've checked. I found a similar product, but there is a difference in the timing and I was wondering exactly what it means. Here's the available product:

I know the first one says it's designed specifically for Sandy Bridge and P67 applications, but I just wanted to understand if the extra -2N in the available RAM's timing would make the RAM a product I should avoid. Thanks in advance for any help!

No takers? I'm hoping to be able to save the $25 with the promo code that ends tomorrow if the other RAM actually will work.

The F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL was originally designed for the Intel P55, AMD 790 Series and AMD 890 Series motherboard chipsets.

That's not to say that it won't work with a P67 Express Chipset because there are customers that have done just that and it works.

2N (a.k.a. 2T) is the recommended Command Rate. Some have been able to run this memory at 1N/1T Command Rate.
