Best Memory for Maximus V Gene

December 8, 2012 5:23:13 AM

System:

Asus Maximus V Gene
Sandy i2500k
GTX 580
Intel 520 180gb
Sugo SG09
Hyper 212+ Evo with push/pull


So, I'm thinking it's time to replace my Corsair Dominator 8gb kit with a new 16gb kit. This time I'm even planning on following the QVL for asus since I suspect my RAM has been the cause of a few crashes in the past.

My question is along the lines of speed. I primarily WoW which is processor intensive. I'm considering shelling out for the GSKILL DDR2400

I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to use the coolers in my tight set up.

My other option is the GSKILL DDR2133

The 2133 is also a good $80 cheaper.

What's the word? Is there that big of a difference in RAM speed? Who thinks the 2400 will melt the inside of my system without the fans?
