Which RAM are you using with your P8P67 Pro?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I've looked at everything form 1333 to 2133 and I have no idea what I need. Goal is to reach 4.5-4.8ghz with an Intel i5 2500K on the ASUS P8P67 Pro motherboard.

Thanks for your help.

Ram speed won't affect your cpu speed.
Get 1600MHz rated ram, they are cheap and at most between 1600MHz and 2133MHz in real world you would see 1fps difference

Maybe if I can turn it sideways so the flat side with the fan is facing the DIMMs?

Just put the Mushkins in my shopping car. Thanks a lot for your help.

Any practical reason to get two pairs for 16gb total? Do any games utilize that much RAM?
