Choosing Ram for a Asus P8P67 MoBo

Hello,
Currently looking at

G.SKILL F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL Ripjaws PC3-12800 4GB 2X2GB DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-24 Core i5 1.5V Memory Kit

This is for an all purpose/gaming platform.

Opinions?

Sorry, perhaps a little more info would be help...

Currently looking at the Asus P8P67 Pro. Rev 3.0 ATX, with the Phenom II x6 1100t Black Edition, with a Noctua NH-D14 LGA1155 heatpipe cooler...

Video card is still up in the air... mebbe the Radeon HD 6870 900 MHZ?

  1. Um... The ASUS P8P67 motherboard is for an Intel LGA1155 processor (Sandy Bridge). You won't have much luck installing that AMD X6 CPU... May consider changing that to an i3-2100 / i5-2400 / i5-2500 / i5-2500k or other LGA1155 processor.

    To answer your question, that memory would be fine in that motherboard and would be a good choice.
  2. ...or you could keep the AMD X6 CPU and change the motherboard to the ASUS AM3+ board below.
    ASUS M5A99X EVO AM3+ => http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131754

    Or this ASROCK board (great features at a great price).

    Great advice! That's why I come to this site.

    As an aside, Rainbow Trout pairs especially well with Sam Adams Beer!

    The ASRock looks great and saves me almost $100.

    I was just looking at towers and power supplies...Coolmaster Haf 912 Black Mid Tower, with a Antec Earthwatts 750w M.P.S. 135mm fam. So Far so good?
  4. Trout and Sam Adams..... True on both fronts!!

    Good call on the power supply. The case is just fine. Lots of happy users with the HAF 912. I would tell you to add a few case fans though to promote good front-to-back air flow.

    Swap that CPU cooler out for the Hyper 212+.

  5. And another $70 saved, the CPU cooler will do the trick. As it stands I'm still under $800 for the new system.

    From the top:

    Tower- Coolmaster Haf 912
    Power- Antec Earthwatts 750w
    MoBo- ASRock 970
    CPU- AMD Phenom IIx6 1100t Black Edition
    CPU Cooler- Cooler Master Hyper 212
    Ram- G. Skill F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL Ripjaws
    Video Card- XFX Radeon HD 6870 900 MHZ 1GB 4.2GHZ GDDR5
    Hard Drive- Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB (X2)

    I'll still keep my LG monitor, and I'll transfer my DVD Burner from the old system.

    Now to sell it to my partner, her kids will be the easy sell!
