About to start new build
Don't know much about memory specs but
want 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3
Think will go with Crucial (only bcause used previously without probs)
But a quick look through their lists I can find 14 different specs that may be ok..but how to decide the best choice?..examples...
10600 CL9 1333 1.35v
10600 CL9 1333 1.50v
12800 CL11 1600 1.5v
12800 9-9-9-24 1600 1.5v
12800 8-8-8-24 1600 1.5v
14400 9-9-9-27 1866 1.5v
17000 9-11-10-27 2133 1.65v


Can you help?

Details:- Cpu = Intel i5-3450 processor
Motherboard:- Asus P8Z77-V LX
Windows Home Premium 64

If you're overclocking, Samsung's ram is the best stuff out there. They use a 22nm process that just blows everyone else out of the water.

However, if you're comfortable with Crucial, go with the two regina recommended.
