Ram Upgrading - I7 950 & Asus Sabertooth x58
Nov 14, 2012, 2:26 AM
I'm thinking of upgrading my RAM to 12 GB. I do a lot of ram intensive things like photo-editing and running vm's.
However, I'm unsure as to what RAM I should buy. Right now I only have 4gb but I know my motherboard is triple channel compatible.
Just wondering what ram kit you guys would recommend. I was looking at the different 12gb kits and was unsure of timings and stuff. A newegg link would be much appreciated.

There is a difference of 133.5MHz but with 12Gb of ram you would not notice much differece, if you can find some compatible modules for less money, by all means go ahead and buy it.
