PNY Optima vs Kingston HyperX

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
These worth it, I will be buying them in fashion so I can get them for for these prices in a total of 16GB *(4x 4GB)* 2 Separate orders each w/ $20-25 MIR

PNY Optima = 2x $64.99 w/ $20 MIR
4GB 1333 Cas: 9

Kingston HyperX = 2x $74.99 w/ $25 MIR
4GB 1600 Cas: 9

I will probably adjust timings for lower Cas as I hear AMD CPUs like lower latency over higher Freqs

Not Sure I never Overclock, this will be the first rig attempted

Get the kingston hyperx they are high quality ram sticks and they tend to be more stable when it comes to changing their timings and over clocking.

The Kingston HyperX is 2 rebate per person, I'm not sure about the PNY. That means your 16GB is $100 AR with the Kingston kit. The checks also get here in 4-6 weeks, faster than normal
