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