Solved Should I buy this RAM? Tags: Homebuilt RAM Intel i5 New Build Systems Product Last response: June 24, 2011 1:42 AM in Systems Share ramble235 June 23, 2011 5:38:04 PM I'm still trying to decide on what I want/can afford for a new build but would like to buy RAM today because its on sale at Newegg. This will be used with either the i5 2500K or i5 2400, but I've not yet decided on mobo (tho probably P67 with 2500K), or SLI/CF or not. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... But this should be pretty good, right, no matter the final build? Vs. some other 8gb set? I am a little concerned about the height of the heat spreaders. Thanks More about : buy ram Best solution Jmassault June 23, 2011 5:41:45 PM Ram looks good. Some aftermarket coolers might not fit as well as they should with the heat spreaders, but you really only need an aftermarket cooler if you plan to overclock. ramble235 June 23, 2011 5:49:39 PM I'd certainly want to OC the 2500K.

The spreaders are not nearly as tall as some (looking at you, Corsair).

I have the exact same RAM and I'm using a Z68 aswell. ramble235 June 24, 2011 1:42:36 AM Terrific! Thank you. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
