What ram to get ?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
hello overclockers
i have a asus rog crosshair IV mb ,and phenon ii x6 1100T all that is left to get is the ram ..( I have everything else)
the mb can support up-to 2133mhz DDR3 ram is overclocked but im wondering what ram to get. Ive found

CORSAIR VENGEANCE 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz DUAL CHANNEL

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...RK:MESINDXX:IT

i mainly do gaming,c# and a lot of networking .

how ever, having over 4gig of ram will mean needing a 64bit op if windows is it worth the hassle and what are the losses ? but the main question is what ram shall I buy ? is spending more on ram with a higher mhz worth it as-well ?

So your gonna run a 32 bit os with 8 Gig's?? What hassel are you talking about? I have been running a 64 bit os since it was released and have never had any problem with anything.
I had the 2000 Mhz 4 gb gskill memory at 9-9-9-24 and sold them cuz they stopped making them. I switched to the 8gb G skill PI's at 1600 6-8-6-24 and have never seen a difference. I will also tell that the 1090T has issues running 8 gb very high Mhz memory. Just some food for thought.

8 gbs of a decent set of ddr3 1600 will be fine. You can find em cheap too. I saw some patriotic 2x4gb ddr3 1600 cl9 sticks for 43$ ar on the egg last week.

Also from what I understood your system will do better with lower latency over a high bandwidth...
