Hi
I just want to know what is the good g.skill memory for my build ?
I am looking for ripjaws F3-12800CL9Q-16GBXL
http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=16950AC8067&v...

Questions:
1-My motherboard is a dual channel architectural so is it better to go 2x8GB or 4x4GB ??
2-Should i go higher than 1600 mhz??

Is that the right memory for me ?


My pc will only be use for gaming nothing else

My setup

Motherboard: P8Z77-V LK
CPU: i5 3570K ivy
Video card: Gigabyte gtx 670 oc 2 gb
Power supply: xfx 750w




Thank you!!

1. 2 x 8GB is better since less slots are used, but 4x4GB is fine too.
2. You can go higher than DDR3-1600 if you plan to OC. If not, DDR3-1600 is perfect, so the memory you selected is fine.

Here are some good 2 x 8GB kits you can use:

If you want more performance, you can get lower timings like CL7. Your hardware combo can support up to DDR3-2133 just fine.

Thank you

That is a perfect kit. It is CL9 so it is decent performance for gaming. For the price, it is definitely worth it.

Furthest left and right ends of the Sniper series is actually taller than the maximum height of RipJaws.

No, unless you like the Sniper heat spreader look over RipJaws.
