More about which recommend
  1. Prices?

    Assuming prices are about the same, I'd get the Gskill.
  2. Whatever you do don't buy any OCZ, they stink in recent years. Also get ram with a 7 latency or less. the smaller the number the better.
  3. There is no big difference in the prices , the biggest difference would be about 25$
  4. Best answer
    I would go with any of these: CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 CL7 Triple Channel Kit
    Mushkin Enhanced Redline 6GB DDR3 1600 CL6 Triple Channel Kit
    G.SKILL TRIDENT 6G (3 X 2G)DDR3 BUS 1600 CL7

    Having used OCZ Gold 6GB kit, I agree.
  6. Yeah, I agree with the G Skill RAM

  7. Id actually settle with either one of the Mushkin, Gskill, or the Dominators(Just looks awesome). On a side note, can you find Pis?
  8. Mushkin is made in the USA. Also is the lowest latency of 6!! Awesome

    How is that something worth noting? It uses the same Elpida chips in most other HP RAMs.. :pt1cable:
  10. Because I particularly like american made things (even as rare as it is).
  11. I would go with the Mushkins or a CL7 Corsair XMS kit.
    I'm not a fan of tall heatspreaders that make aftermarket cpu cooling a nightmare.
  12. BTW , which one of these would hinder the ability to install large CPU coolers ? I think it would be a serious problem ??
  13. The G.SKILL TRIDENT and Corsair Dominators have very tall heat spacers, which can interfere with a large HSF.

    I support the Mushkin or the G.SKILL PI Series 6GB DDR3 1600 Cas6 or Cas7 models, as well.
  14. I have a set of G-skill rip jaws and an aftermarket cooler with no problems from the heat risers. The Ripjaws aren't very tall at all

    But hes talking about the trident.
  16. I know, he also said mushkin has a low riser. I was just adding to that, that the ripjaws don't have tall risers ;)
