Looking for equivalent/compativle ram

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Mobo:

GFX card: CPU:
CPU COOLER:
Now, all my parts are coming tomorrow apparently but the ram on amazon will take 5 days and newegg will take about 4 days.

I am looking to start building this tomorrow so does anyone have a link to equivalent RAM that is compatible with my setup?



The ram I was going to buy:

Yes, they'll work perfectly. These are designed for second generation I3/5/7 processors.

Both sets of ram have the same timings (9-9-9-24), the only difference is that the Corsair ram is rated at 1.5v and the G.Skill is at 1.25v. I stand to be corrected, but I think that you might be able to get a better OC on the G.skill because of the lower voltage.

My only concern is will my cooler block out being able to install those?

The CM 212 cooler has 37mm clearance between its base and the fins. The Corsair ram is 52.5mm high though.

Here is what I'm thinking: If you install the cooler with the fan to the back side(I/O panel) and place the ram in slots 0 and 1 you should not have a problem (see pic). There might even be enough space to install a second fan for a push/pull setup.

Those will also get the job done (Their height is 40mm).

Being as pedantic as I am, I would have gone with either one of the other two choices listed, purely based on the colour and it blending in with the rest of the pc. (This is just personal preference though)
