I got these for mine and they work great! They can be OC'ed to 2133 without having to change voltage or timing. Very short heat spreader and right now they're going for about what you're looking for. They aren't necessarily low voltage, they run at 1.65V. But that shouldn't be any kind of an issue.

Those have big A$$ heat spreaders on them though.

These are some good options.

I really knigston ram.... You can also find these in higher speeds, but 1600 MHZ is usually a good mid way point to start with.

Just got my board in, it OC's good so far. Had some problems setting it into ahci mode. Also extremely annoying my DAS keyboard doesn't allow the Mobo to go past the post lol, i plug in a old Microsoft one it works fine. I am guessing it needs a firmware update, anyone else have this problem with incompatible keyboards?

They're really a lot shorter than the pictures make them look. Definitely not as short as the first one you listed. About as tall as the second one. Corsair XMS3 is very short if space is very critical.

You should be able to enable those feature. You will not need to though. When you get that bad boy installed go to this thread and follow the instructions on the first page. You will thank me. I do not have fast boot enabled and I am booting in 10 second with all of these tweaks.

I've got my pc all working albeit without the new memory (I'm holding out with 1x4gb XMS3) but I have one problem. After installing all the drivers and tuning utilities off the CD I found a single piece of bloatware. On my taskbar there is now a link to "Zynga Social Games" I've tried unpinning it but every time I restart it goes back there. There is also a link in the start menu. Is there any way of getting rid of it?

What a pain! Just built my computer last night, had everything running smoothly, final lot of Windows updates had just finished and then when it rebooted it doesn't even POST. Black screen and that's it. So far I've figured out one fan header is dead (one of the CPU Fan headers). Not sure what else. Hopefully I can get a replacement from ASRock. Can't find my receipt though. At least I have a record on my credit card.mad.gif
