Asus P6T Deluxe V2 - RAM selection assistance


I thought I was relatively tech savvy; but, after looking at pages and pages of RAM stats, I am utterly confused - I only know the basics. I am looking to upgrade my current ram: Elpida 1GB DDR3 1333MHZ JEDEC STANDARD PC3-10666. I have 3 of these. I want to upgrade to 3 x 4GB (I figure I can have a max of 24GB so why not get half now and half later?); I guess I can settle for 3 x 2GB since I don't really game heavily; BUT, I want to keep it at 1.5V because I had some power related shutdown issues... I think the CPU overheated but again I am not tech savvy enough to know. And I think heatsinks are probably a good idea, cause it gets real hot and humid in the summer here. I was looking at the following:

CORSAIR Vengeance 12GB (3 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ12GX3M3A1600C9:

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 12GB (3 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL7T-12GBRH:

I have a Intel Core i7 920 @2.67GHz Bloomfield (don't know if you need to know); I use the X.M.P. profile in my bios; it was just kinda there, heard it was good; so keep in mind I don't play with OC'ing

I did find some forum posts on my motherboard and ram; but it was more geared toward that person and I had a little trouble making sense of everything that was said, so any suggestions or help is so, very welcome.

Thanks :)

P.S. if my post format or anything is wrong, please let me know.

    You have chosen correcty. Either one of those RAM choices will work. Personlally, I would go with the Gskill because of it's lower latency.
  2. Sweet, Gskill it is! I was afraid it wouldn't be compatible or something, heh. Thanks :)
