G Skills Ares

Is the G Skills Ares ram sets compatible with the new Asus P8Z77 WS mobo?

if not what ram set would you recommend for a high end rig leaning towards programming, simulations and Graphic Drawing but still gaming capable?

  1. Yes, the'll work -- no I do not recommend any of the G.SKILL Ares lines; see this link and the comments below -> http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/313756-30-16gb-compatible-sabertooth#t2101364

    Are you looking for 32GB or 16GB of RAM?

    wow that was really interesting read didn't realise that.

    Going for 32GB.

    So basically treat ram clocked above 1600MHz with an Erie of caution and check VICCO during first boot?

    Is it possible to drop the VICCO of higher clocked ram to reduce degradation of the CPU whilst still maintaining stability at the higher Frequency?

  3. Possible sure ... errors sure ... all risk on your shoulders. So unless you like pain, I don't, look for alternatives. I've listed (3) kits, the Best are the Corsair Dominators IF your HSF allows for the taller Dominator's:
    Dominator/Dominator GT:
