Hey guys,

I've been looking into CAS latencies and timings, but I'm still confused about what would be optimal for me. I'm not looking to overclock right now (probably getting an i5-2300, therefore no OCing), but will in the future.

Either getting 16gb or 8gb... if I go 8, I want to be able to add more to get to 16gb later on.

I.e. the Ripjaws X http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and I can just add another set later on, but I've heard troubles with them? How better/worse than the other RipJaws X? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Any help would be appreciated!

with ram first see that it on the mb tested list or the vendor tested list.not buying ram that on the list might not let the bord post or the mb could have bsod or hangs. you then want to find memory with smaller heat spreaders then the ones on gskill if your going to use an after market heat sink..intel stock speed for ib and sb is 1333..(667) ram..ib can use 1600 per intel spec. most ram in those two spots are going to be the best value for speed. as you go up in speed...some ram is now 2400 and faster just posted on toms under news..your going to pay extra price for for a little more speed.

if you have a H67 board you won't be overclocking no matter what chip you get.

when it comes to RAM speed, anything above 1600 9CAS isn't worth it:

Actually guys, I meant the H77-D3H, my bad. Does that effect your answers? :/

Now I'm confused... on the memory list, it shows F3-12800CL9Q-16GBXL, but that's a quad-channel kit? Ehhh. This mobo is only dual-channel.

dual channel is 2 matched sticks. quad channel is 4 matched sticks (2+2) no difference. :)

But why does it list a quad channel kit as compatible? And if you're correct, all four-stick kits should say 'quad', no? But there are 4 x 4gb 'dual channel' kits. So now I am confused :(

stop. you're gonna kill yourself.
as i said dual channel is two matching sticks. quad channel is 4 matching sticks.

its more of a marking ploy then a technical standard.

DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT!
