As OCZ no longer does any RAM, I'm having to buy a different make. I'm thinking Corsair or GSkill.
1.) At current market prices, should I get rid of my OCZ and buy a new batch or should I keep it and try mixing in another make?
2.) My current OCZ RAM is CL8. If I buy another RAM which is CL9, will this be a problem?
3.) If my current config is 3x2GB, can I mix in a 3x4GB for the remaining slots?
4.) It's not a problem to mix xMP and non xMP RAM, is it? It just means that I can't do any overclocking on any of the RAM?
If anyone is still reading this - I hadn't bought the Corsair 24GB ram yet, tho I've been playing GW2 and my PC was warning me that system ram was low!!!!
Just a question - if I buy the COrsair 24GB http://www.scan.co.uk/products/24gb-(6x4gb)-corsair-vengeance-jet-black-ddr3-pc3-12800-(1600)-non-ecc-cas-9-9-9-24-xmp-150v , will this work on any of the new Ivy Bridge z77 platforms? (in case I upgrade in future)
So I've bought the Corsair Vengeance 24GB.
Problem is, my cooler is a Titan Fenrir and it's pretty big. It's obstructed the first RAM slot and with the Corsair Vengeance design, the RAM stick won't fit in.
Should I keep the 24GB set at the price I bought £124 and only use 3 sticks of the RAM set, and maybe in future buy a new smaller CPU cooler and use the other 3 sticks...
OR refund this RAM set and just buy a smaller 3x something set of RAM?
This is how it looks with the 3 Vengeance sticks installed. You can see the slot closest to CPU cooler is blocked by the cooler fan: http://imgur.com/a/8icwb
