    anything above 1600mhz is not good for IB,16GB is overkill for gaming and daily stuff,i would suggest this one-

  4. samsung low profiles are killers, espesh if you wanna o/c. mad timings as well.
  5. ram oc=waste!
  6. But wouldnt you do it all at once? Not just one then the other? 1600mhrtz is fine though

    Why is that 32gb is not good for IB?
  8. ^there's no problem with 32GB,just make sure it is rated at 1.5V and 1600mhz.
