I recommend CORSAIR Vengeance 99% of the time, quality RAM and low profile with XMP profile. And if u will get an aftermarket CPU cooler, low profile is the worry free remedy with perfect fit with any large cooler.

Vengeance Low Profile heat spreaders have a reduced height of 1.03" (26.25mm). They're designed for high-performance systems with extra-large CPU coolers, small form factor system builds, or any other space-constrained application where standard Vengeance memory might not fit.

None yet I haven't ordered the parts. But it will probably be a 212 evo. I'm a bit over budget so the cooler might be put off for a couple weeks.

BTW, that first Corsair will work for u too.

U will use the second and fourth RAM slot, so there is enough room.

That is great RAM for OC, so its nice to have it, but in normal speed it is not needed at all.

Most RAM don't need any heat spreaders, because it doesn't get hot,

like the DDR2 and DDR1 did.

I like those too. Great RAM. Mostly I used the Corsair, as I never had any problem with them.

But lately I installed the G.SKILL too, just a few days ago, and it was 1866MHz with no issue on your mobo.

It adjusted for the XMP mode and we run it @ 4.2GHz with low 60°C in Prime 95.

And the RAM was cool to touch : )

Thanx to companies like G.SKILL and others, the RAM is so cheap now.

Not only because the memory is cheap,

but these quality RAM availability on market.

They keep competition in check, and that is good for us.

The XMP mode is pretty much preset frequency on the RAM chip, so u can only enable the mode on your mobo and be done. The RAM is overclocked, because the CPU runs in native speed @ 1600MHz

This is what u will do when u will get it.

When it comes to choosing the right memory for your system there are three main factors to consider regarding performance. These factors are memory frequency, latency and density. This presentation will briefly go over these performance factors and also explain Intel® XMP (Extreme Memory Profile). With XMP the days of trial and error memory overclocking are gone. XMP allows guaranteed overclocked memory performance to be enabled with the “flick of a switch”, while still allowing expert users the option of manual configuration and tweaks, beyond the officially tested and guaranteed overclocked settings.
