dominator gt VS g-skill ripjaws-x for 2600k

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
ok so im making a new build with the intel 2600k, using the asus p8p67 pro motherboard. I am either getting the noctua nh-d14 cooler or the corsair h70, not sure yet.

I like the look of dominator gt's, both technically and aesthetically, and have heard they have a very good reputation for quality and overclockability. Recently i have discovered that G-skill are also pretty good, but are half the price. for example the kits below:

http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=366 - £46

or

http://www.google.co.uk/products/catalog?q=corsair+dominator+gt&hl=en&cid=6960178870773833915&os=tech-specs - £76


what would you go for? the above are only 4gb but im using them as an example. i will likely get a 2x4gb kit when i buy.

Im a Gskill fanboy so in memory I will always go with the Gskill. No matter how great the Dominator GT may be lol I have had 4 PCs with RipJaws and i love it! oldest one is on just DDR 2 800 which is my 7-8yr old P4 OC to 4Ghz lol

my question is why the 2133mhz??

I would go for the g.skill because the GT's need 1.65v compared to the g.skill needing 1.5v with very similar timings.

G Skill sold me when a set of DDR 2 memory went bad. From the time i put the memory in my mailbox to the time i received the memory, was 6 days. Amazing RMA speed
