RAM for my new i5-2500K rig.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Title says it all. I've narrowed down my selection to 1.5v 8gb (2x4gb):

Mushkin Enhanced Blackline

Corsair Vengeance

G.SKILL Ripjaws X

All three of those sets of RAM are 1.5v DDR3 1600 CAS-9, 9-9-9-24. Now with that selection set aside, I also have a couple other options with the G.SKILL and Corsair ram modules.

G.SKILL and Corsair both offer DDR3 1600 CAS-8, 8-8-8-24 memory kits as well as a DDR3 1866 CAS-9, 9-10-9-27/28 memory kits. So many options! Which selection should I be making.

Oh and thanks in advanced. mario.gif

Considering they're all very similar kits, just go for aesthetics. I'm liking that black PCB on the G.SKILL kit. Also, the Vengeance kit has taller heatsinks, so keep that in mind; it may interfere with your CPU cooler.

Yea the original three I just wanted to hear people's experiences with any of the three companies. But for the CAS latency and RAM speed, what would an i5-2500K sandy bridge benefit from more, the faster speed or lower cas latency and timings? EDIT: I should also note that I plan on over-clocking; I'm not quite sure what gives more headroom...

Lower timings and CAS will make overclocking easier, but the difference won't be significant.

I got my Asus P8P67 Pro, i5 2500K and Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz -9-9-9-24-1.5v on a few days ago...

These Vengeance heatspreaders are TALL! They are much taller than the impression you get from pictures.

Anyway, I was lucky and probably got a kit that uses the same chips (Only different SPD info) as Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz 8-8-8-24-1.5v Kit. Because I'm perfectly stable at 1600MHz 8-8-8-24-1.5v (stock Volts) and even Command Rate 1t. So I'm very happy...

Thats what i have told you a few hours ago in your thread about your RAM biggrin.gif
OT: If you could get a 1866 CL9: Do it. I`m really to lazy to search all the endless threads made about that subject - but they will bandwithwise outperform the 1600@CL8. Since you want to o.c. the RAM this is anyway just the first stage. Maybe you end up with your 1866ish RAM @2000MHZ cool.gif
