  4. You would be better off with quad channel kit that is optimized.
  5. BTW, why only 16GB?
  6. im only using it for gaming i cant see me using more than 16gb of ram, why that one over the one i picked? my cpu can only support 1600 and the timmings and latency is way higher
  7. U can use XMP profile or OC manually.
  8. cpu is 3930K

    What is most important, that it is @ 1.5V
  10. that ram is a little out of my price range since i need 8 sticks
  11. so your suggesting i get something optimized for quad channel ? stay away from "duel channel"?
  12. With more sticks u are increasing the chance of bad RAM stick.

    It works fine in most cases. But there is a reason for it.
  13. i guess what i don't understand if u compare that one to

    this has lower timings and lower latency so wouldn't it make it faster? or am i missing something
