Hey guys just curious if CORSAIR Vengeance 16gb (2x8gb) would work well in my system of if anyone has heard of problems before I go and buy it.
RAM
http://www.frys.com/product/6952407?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN...
MOBO

CPU
Intel I7 930 @ 2.8ghz
GPU
GTX 560TI
PSU
Corsair HX 750W

Also just want to add I have not tweaked or overclocked any of these devices, and I had 12gb of ram (3x4gb) of Corsair vengeance and one of them crapped out giving me a blue screen so I memtested for about 10 hours to filter it out and figure out which one it was. The reason I add this is would it be dumb to replace Vengeance with new Vengeance? Haha idk if thats a dumb question but I'll ask...

Thanks!

Just make sure that if you have an aftermarket heatsink, there's enough clearance for the RAM heatsinks. If you are still using the stock heatsink you will be fine.

As for the RAM, Corsair always makes good stuff but there are 16GB packages of RAM right now for way cheaper, and I mean like $20 cheaper. Look around on pcpartpicker and find the best price.

Yeah it should clear it since the old vengeance fit no problem, I would assume there the same size.

Your CPU supports triple channel RAM. See if you can find a single replacement 4GB stick with same specs (speed, latency, voltage) or get 3x8GB kit.
