So is the Kingston memory no good for the I7 2600k? Because in a review I just read researching your statment. The guy said a I7 875k was a good cpu to use or any unlocked cpu. ???? | Report abuse JHBorden October 5, 2011 4:13:47 AM So would 2 of the vengence ram at 4 gb's each be better then the 4 kingston at 2 gbs each please help!

Therefore, I recommend DDR3-1600 CAS 8 or 9, 2x4GB @ 1.50v. My favorites are the G.SKILL Ripjaws X F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM which play well in double sets -> http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682... or Kingston KHX1600C9D3T1K2/8GX -> http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682... | Report abuse JHBorden October 5, 2011 2:43:26 PM Best answer selected by jhborden. | Report abuse JHBorden October 5, 2011 2:44:44 PM Ok Great!
