Memory suggestions

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys!

I am working up a SB 2600k *AIR* OC build (1st-time OCer), and need suggestions on memory.

MB will be the Asus P8Z68 deluxe
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131753

These are the two that I am looking hard at, but frankly I am a little "green" when it comes to memory speeds & their relation to OCing. Money isn't an issue, and I absolutely want 16GB.

Thanks for looking!

What are you using this for? I'm just curious why you want 16gb, I'm running ESX with 6 VM's now and I don't use 12gb.

Either way, Corsair, the timings will benefit you more than the extra 133Mhz.

Either kit will be fine. You can also look at two sets of 2x4GB too, that's what I just did. Mine will be in later today.

VMs just like you. I max out 8GB consistently, and now 16GB now will cost me HALF of what 8GB did 3 years ago.

After reading more posts about timings, I totally agree with you on that. Thanks again.

Yeah, I've not struggled with this setup, but if you've got the cash go with the 16GB.

It's good you went with the i7 as well, VM's rip that up
