I figure if I'm basically replacing mixed ram might as well get something with a tad higher speed. Since most things I've read are sandybridge likes high speed and looser timings as opposed to AMD which prefers tighter timings and lower speed.

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 1866mhz 9-10-9-28 1.5v
VS


Either one of those would have been better. Bit of tweaking and you could have managed 1866mhz with better timings and a bit more voltage, the 1.25v sniper has a lot of voltage headroom.

Well the main reason I didnt choose the two suggest is because I have had bad luck OCing ram in the past and I am not very experienced in it (I'm also nervous about adjusting voltages). So I just figured I'd buy that set and pop them in and set the stock speeds and I'm good to go.

lol I see, but this is overclock.net and that means help is available 24/7

Sandybridge lacks the bclk overclocking which makes overclocking RAM more simpler but restrictive. It's quite simple.

If I end getting courageous I think I may try to tighten the timings up a bit on that ram tho. Maybe see if I can get it to 9-9-9 but I am not sure yet. Better than the mixed ram I have now!

Indeed it is, let us know if you need any help in the process. I think you could probably tighten them with around 1.65v however it depends on the RAMs potential.

Good luck anyway

This might be old but hopefully should help out.

I literally just bought 8GB of the second kit you linked and I installed it and set the XMP profile and did intel burn test a couple times and works like a charm. Although my one beef is it my GFLOPs went from 117ish to 105ish with the new ram
post #109 of 456
so, you recommend it ?
post #110 of 456
I would recommend it as of right now. Just ran Prime95 for awhile with no errors either. I definitely notice things loading a tad faster. I'm fairly positive its not a placebo effect because my desktop icons are no longer white sqaures when windows loads, it's now the icons.

PS- My old ram was 8GBs of mixed 2GB sticks running at 1600 9-9-9
