Ram for i7 and P8P67? (stock) Tags: Memory RAM Intel i7 Product Last response: October 17, 2011 4:43 AM in Memory Share neutralTTY October 16, 2011 2:54:48 PM Hello. I'm new. I have an Asus P8P67 LE 4 x DIMM Máx. 32 GB, DDR3 1866(O.C.)/2133(O.C.)/2200(O.C.)/1600*/1333/1066 And I will put hree an i7-2600K processor (D2 stepping) I probably maintain the cpu in stock voltage. The usage of the computer will be: virtualization under linux I read that best RAM for OC are 1600Mhz, but I think I will not OC nothing (I THINK). So my question is: In performance terms for the computer, and with stock parameters of RAM and CPU. Which RAM should I put for more performance? 1600 Mhz?? 2133Mhz?? I'm sawing the Kingston HyperX for 1600Mhz And G.Skill Ripjaws X for 2133Mhz Any more sugestions?? Thanks a lot More about : ram p8p67 stock crisan_tiberiu a b } Memory October 16, 2011 3:18:01 PM well, i say 1600 Mhz its enaugh for you, and if you really keep the 2600k @ stock voltage dont bother, grab the simple 2600. sosofm a b } Memory October 16, 2011 3:18:54 PM With 2133Mhz you will gain a litlle+ in performance but mostly in synthetic test. For normal users go 1600Mhz. If you wanna overclock your CPU with the new UEFI bios you can do just with a simple raise from the multiplier.

Just remember to get 1.5V. neutralTTY October 16, 2011 5:17:47 PM Thanks to all. I will purchase 1600Mhz RAM > and if you really keep the 2600k @ stock voltage dont bother, grab the simple 2600. but remember, actually you can buy 2600K at same price than a 2600 neutralTTY October 16, 2011 5:46:55 PM > Just remember to get 1.5V. In 1.5V I have the same price between these, which you suggest me? G.Skill Ripjaws X DDR3 1600 PC3-12800 16GB 4x4GB CL8 8-8-8-24 1.5 Volts Corsair Vengeance PC3-12800 DDR3 1600 16GB 4x4GB CL9 9-9-9-24 1.5 V And why not 1.65V of Kingston HyperX? Thanks hunuok October 17, 2011 4:43:33 AM Quote:G.Skill Ripjaws X DDR3 1600 PC3-12800 16GB 4x4GB CL8 8-8-8-24 1.5 Volts I use the same memory. In BIOS, set OC to X.M.P for best results. The Corsair is another alternative. I believe this is a little more expensive than G Skill (Here in Korea anyways). Quote:And why not 1.65V of Kingston HyperX? As mentioned, Sandy is rated for 1.5V. Using 1.65V can cause instability/damage to components. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources I5 2500K 87 DEGREES IDLE! + Asus P8P67 Evo Problems NEED HELP!
