3D games running on high settings.
I'm going to be using 2500k with gtx570, no o/c
4 slotted MoBo, so i need a set of ram.

I don't think i'm gonna need a Low Profile since i can place them in 2nd and 4th slot. (1st and 3rd restricted because of my CPU cooler)

4Gb(2Gbx2) or 8Gb(4Gbx2)?

CL 9 or lower?

PC3-10600 or higher?

I know RAM doesnt affect much in gaming like cpu&gpu does, but i dont want it to ruin it either.

Looking for a good set of RAMs. Probably with heatpads attached.

Timings/speeds don't make a notable difference in games/apps etc.They're mainly important for OC'ng.So a decent pair of 8GB DDR3 1600MHz RAMs(such as Corsair Vengeance series) will be fine.

Not all mobos are running if the 0 slot is empty.

OK, make sure it is @ 1.5V than.

It does not make any difference how it looks tho : )) Does it?

Yes it will.

1.35v - 1.5v is OK, but the 2500K don't like 1.65v.

BTW, any other than 1.5v and 1333 MHz voids the warranty : )) So don't tell.
