More about which series
  1. you left out corsair vengeance (not low profile), there probably isn't a difference but I think they look a lot better
  2. Depends on some many other factors...so unless you list a CPU + MOBO none of this means zip. Also, what DRAM Frequency and Density (GB/stick) or Size (GB)?
  3. 16GB (4X4)
    i7 3770k
    z77 ud5h
  4. Most folks, the Corsair Vengeance is a solid choice the downside is running them > Rated i.e. >DDR3-1600 but @ Rated they're rock solid:
    Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 Model CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233143

    If you plan to OC both the CPU and RAM >Rated: Corsair Dominator (including GT), G.SKILL Trident X Series, or Mushkin Enhanced Redline. The Corsair Dominator series are all hand picked (expensive) IC's and easily OC.

    I have a budget - 100$

    Low profile kits are preferred as tpc 812 is a large heatsink...

    Currently considering G.Skill ares 1600mhz (4x4) blue

    Blue matches my color scheme...
  6. Your GA-Z77X-UD5H is mostly 'Black', if you want 'Blue' then CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9B or low voltage F3-12800CL9Q-16GBXM.

    How does low voltage ram affect performance?
  8. I actually prefer the 1.35v because it's easier on the CPU, the performance is the same for comparable Frequency & CAS. I'm running two kits of CMZ16GX3M4X1600C9G and in my testing their actually better than the 1.50v Vengeance.

    Keep in mind a low voltage (1.35v) kits can run @ 1.50v or 1.35v; DDR3L.

    If i buy 1.35v ram, will i get better OC results?
  10. Typically no, it's about the same but in my experiences I can shave-off a little vCore - http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2320509

    IB is designed to include DDR3L - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivy_Bridge_(microarchitecture)#Features

    What is DDR3L?
  12. Is 8gb of ram enough for video editing?
  13. DDR3L = Double Data Rate revision 3 Low voltage.
