  1. That one will do great. Stick with that one.
  2. Better on on your site would be . But it would be hardly worth the $$$ : )


    G.SKILL TridentX 8GB(2x4GB)DDR3 2400MHz (PC3 19200) 240-Pin Ultra Performance DDR3 SDRAM Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C10D-8GTX

  3. Those are a good set, you won't go wrong with them. If you're adventurous, you could grab 3 or 4 sets of these:
    http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Electronics-Extreme-MV-3V4G3D-US/dp/B00592002W
    (I don't know if they ship to New Zealand) and then bin them yourself, and get them dialed in and running faster than the G.Skill set will. The set I linked are what many memory "manufacturers" bin and sell after attaching heat spreaders.
  4. True true, that's actually what I was going to get, but the sales rep
    Said its for the i7 3770 ivy bridge, lol I gave him a blank look and said its RAM, faster ram etc
    Then he said its specifically tested for that and may not work too well on your system..
    So I wasn't so sure, that one should be fine yes?
    2400mhz trident X

    Thanks bud.

    Check these.


    RAM speed comparison - We're looking at a less than 2% difference from the fastest to the slowest.


  6. True true, some good info, do you know why they say that certain RAMs can only be used with certain processors? I don't understand this, I thought RAM would work anywhere, specially the fastest RAM
    Should work with no issues on the rampage iv.
    The top speed ram from Gskill is only qualifies for ivy bridge :S
  7. The voltage, mostly.

    Than its marketing : )

    The Sandy Bridge too, but Intel says that u should use the 1333MHz : ))

    The Sandy Bridge-E can use it too.

    Lol. True, I guess I'll just go with the 1866mhz.

    Thanks bud.
