Anyways you already notice that the one is missing is the motherboard..
Ill go for Z77 for sure.. Ill go for ASUS for sure..

  1. Welcome to Tom's Forum! :)

    Problem, the only way to get 32GB of RAM on any LGA 1155 MOBO is to get a 4x8GB kit. You listed the Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1866C9R which is a 2x4GB single kit i.e. 8GB and if you purchased (2) kits: 1. they might not work at a fully-matched 4x__GB Rated Frequency/CAS, 2. 4x4GB is 16GB i.e. two kit(s).

    Next, yeah sure if you meant the ASUS P8Z77-V PRO it's a nice MOBO.

    32GB of RAM I'd consider the G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR3 1600 Model F3-1600C9Q-32GXM - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231569

    For 'Gaming' 8GB is perfectly fine.
  2. thanks fr the welcome..

    Actually im going for 16 GBs of ram so my mistake the number..
    Anw so you say that the p8z77v pro is on top of sabertoothz77 uh? go for that one?
  3. Either the ASUS P8Z77-V PRO or Sabertooth Z77 are fine on the SB, I just am not sure how any MOBO will perform with the IB since there's no (very little) data.

    For 16GB @ DDR3-1866 then I would get one of these kits -> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007611%20600006073&IsNodeId=1&srchInDesc=1866&page=1&bop=And&CompareItemList=147%7C20-233-228%5E20-233-228-TS%2C20-233-248%5E20-233-248-TS%2C20-231-456%5E20-231-456-TS%2C20-226-303%5E20-226-303-02%23

    DDR3 1600MHz is all that needed...

    ^Not arguing on that.

    If the OP wants DDR3-1866 then go for it...
