RAM Recommendations Please RIVE + 3930k Tags: Memory Last response: September 27, 2012 9:03 PM in Memory Share cursed4eva September 26, 2012 11:54:00 PM Hi Guys, I am upgrading my pc now have bought the Asus X79 Rampage IV Extreme with an intel 3930k processor. The memory part is a little confusing since if I go for a higher clock speed the latency timings seem increased, what should be the focus while selecting memory? clock speed or timings? Could you recommend 8 gig sticks? Just link me to some info on the topic, am willing to read up, just dont know where to start Thanks in advance Ash (www.cursed4eva.com) More about : ram recommendations rive 3930k 2260121 September 27, 2012 12:26:51 AM Linus explaining how to overclock your ram and proving that it does almost absolutely nothing : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=55UkTAsDhY8 Imo, choose some good quality sticks with a heatsink you like and you will be good. My personal favorite : http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682... Got any idea how many GBs you want? WDakhane September 27, 2012 9:03:03 PM I would suggest going with Corsair Dominator Platinum 1600MHz [2 x 8GB] or [2 x 4GB]. They seem excellent in all aspects.
