XMS3 :

Hi guys, i am finding hardware to a new gamer PC 3820 i7 build.

We are currently discussing about RAM. My friend says that the XMS3 is better than the vengeance because it has 2000 mhz, but the vengeance have CL7 and a newer technology with 1600 mhz.

Which one is best of these two ?

Welcome to Tom's Forum! :) 

The following is Corsair's 'pecking' order:

Dominator Platinum
Dominator GT
XMS series
Value RAM series

For the X79/LGA 2011 and the i7-3820 SB-E purchase Quad Channel kits - Anything faster than DDR3-1600 yields little to no gains in performance and other than a RAM Disk is virtually identical.

Before spending a lot on RAM given the choice use the savings for an i7-3930K.

I use these DDR3L-1600 kits and love them and the 1.35v -
