What RAM should I get for my rig?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm wondering what RAM you guys could advise for my setup (see Sig Rig). In terms of performance, overclockability, and compatibility.

 

These are the choices I have narrowed down to. I am going for blue coloured RAM heatspreaders because of the colouring of my ASUS motherboard and case LED's.

I'm leaning toward the Corsair 8gb kit myself. What do you guys think? If you can suggest better within a £50 price range with blue heat spreaders then I'm all ears.

 

Thanks.

I was pretty much thinking the same thing. 8gb kit for the price of half the 4gb kits. Yeah why not? Ordered! :D
