Whatever you choose, make sure that it will do the quoted voltage at 1.5v. There is a large amount of inexpensive memory capable of doing 1600MHz, but only with 1.65v. The Sandy Bridge memory controller may be damaged by using voltage greater than the stock 1.5v plus a margin of 5%, or 1.575v.

Otherwise, just go for whatever -- corsair, g. skill, crucial -- all decent brands for DDR3. Memory is a commodity item, so just go with the price for the speed you want.

Query: Why do you want to use a 4x2GB setup instead of a 2x4GB setup? Lower timings don't make that much of a difference. Plus, you may have issues running those low timings with four sticks. Double the RAM will make more difference than the low timings, especially since the 2x4GB kits are $50 less. If anything, you can get CL8 or CL7 2x4GB 1600 kits as well.

Hey -- just out of curiosity, how do you get your capitalization like that? Did you just hold shift for the first letter of every word? that looks like a huge pain in the neck...

Thanks For All The Help N The Info !


I think you made a great choice -- not only does this memory look extremely slick (not that you'll ever really see it under what I hope will be a bulky heat sink), but at 1.25v for 1600MHz, that memory will last you forever. You may be able to pump the voltage and get some higher speeds.

But so you know -- just reading the newegg reviews, it does look like you may have some trouble getting it to run at 1.25v:

Quote:
Cons: Auto voltage set to 1.35V. XMP still left it at 1.35V. Had to dial down voltage manually to 1.25V. Stable so far @ 1.25V.


Not a deal-breaker -- just make sure you go into the BIOS and tweak the settings when you take delivery.

Enjoy the system!
