good X79 quad-channel RAM?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I would prefer black/white RAM, and I don't really care for anything faster than DDR3 1600. 16 GB only. If someone could make a recommendation, that would be great.

Thanks!

I would suggest this one:

They also have the tall heatsinked version as well:

completely cosmetic preference on the differences.

Flipping between the two, it kind of looks like the heatsinks were flipped down tongue.gif just an observation. So you're saying the low-profile will overclock just as good as the big heatsinks?

The heatsinks will only have an effect on the heat produced. The low profile fits under certain cooler but if your air flow is good in your case I can't it is really mattering. The are all mainly for looks anyway smile.gif
