i want to upgrade my ram to 16G
currently i have Corsair Dominator 8GB (4G x 2) Dual Channel DDR3 Memory Kit (CMP8GX3M2A1600C9) (which works perfectly).
so after some research i found two candidates:
1- Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1866 MHZ (CMD16GX3M2A186‚Äč6C9)
2- G.Skill DDR3 PC3-14900 1866MHz TridentX Series CL8 (F3-1866C8D-16GTX)

i read some review about the Corsair Dominator Platinum that say if you further upgrade your PC to 32GB with even another Dominator Platinum exact set of 16GB you will face instability issues.
so will i face the same problem with the G.skill set.
---------------------------------------------------------
and another thing
will i get compatibility problems my motherboard (because it is not on the memory supported list)?


core i5-750 @4.00 Ghz
GA-P55A-UD4P (Socket LGA 1156) <maximum 16GB of memory>
Corsair Dominator 8GB (4G x 2)

Corsair dominator series is one of the best ram cards out there. Since your board only supports 16gB it is better you don't install more than 16gB. It is better to have four 4gB ram cards than 8gB.

if it was vengence vs ripjaws, get ripjaws. For your case, I would get the corsair. It looks better and is reconigsed as one of the best

Between the Corsair and G. Skill sets I've used, G. Skill has won hands down every time.

Haven't received one bad DIMM, never had any instability.

Honestly though, they're both great sets, so should do well either way.

I have used both and both are excellent. GSkill is slightly less expensive.
