Hi guys, I need help.. I just got MSI z77 GD65 that just came out, and right now deciding on DDR3 16gb.

Just wondering, does this motherboard support these two ram from g.skil, DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000)?

If those doesn't support what you guys think of Corsair Vengenace for this mortherboard, it will be pair up with I7 3770k when it comes out with cooler Corsair H80. Thanks

Your help is appericated! Thanks

Both of those G-Skill RAM kits will work great. The only thing is that when you install them, they are going to default to 1600MHz, you will have to OC them in order to bump them up to 2133MHz. This should be easy enough through an XMP profile setting in the BIOS.

itzdanielp, which g-skill do you prefer ? I was planning to get the G.Skill Gamer one but they don't have much review at all.

Is there noticably difference performance from 1600mhz to 2133mhz?

Going us i7 3770k and SSD

Both of the G-Skill kits are identical. The only difference is the physical look and design / color.

In daily use you will see no difference between the RAM speeds, only in synthetic benchmarks.
