X79 Build What Memory To Buy

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi there I just ordered a 3930K and ASUS Rampage IV Extreme but wondering what memory I should get. I will list my choices below and tell me what you guys think. Also would filling all 8 Dimm slots affect my overclocking potential. Thanks

1866MHZ CL9

2133MHZ CL9

2400MHZ CL11

All G.Skill and 4x4GB Kits.
