RAM recommendation needed for Asus P8Z77-V Lk

Could someone please recommend compatible ram for this combination?

Asus P8Z77-V LK mobo
i5-3570k CPU
CM Hyper 212 + Evo cooler
Gtx 670 gpu


I am thinking low profile sticks may be needed. I would prefer an 8gb kit.

I do plan on overclocking the cpu and gpu.

What do you recommend?
Thanks

  1. What store/online store are you looking to buy from? What country are you in?
  2. Sorry, I should of mentioned that.


    USA. newegg or any similar is fine, i am also near a microcenter but their prices tend to be higher on ram.

    Something like these http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820220558 or http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148544 would be what you're looking for. 2x4gb sticks, leaving you with upgrade space and 9-9-9-24 timings. Sorry for the Canadian newegg, it doesn't like when I switch to the US one.

    If you don't see either of those in the US site (you should, but maybe not) then what you want to look for is 9-9-9-24 timings on DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) ram running at 1.5v. With that CPU cooler you also need to watch for the size of the heatsink on the ram. I'm using http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231277 x 3 right now and the fan JUST fits over top. I'm talking like 1-2 mm of clearance.
