I really want to stick with 8gbs if I can to make sure I get the max oc.

Get 8GiB if you don't do anything that will use up more than that, and aren't opening lots of RAM hungry programs at once. And you have an SSD, so there isn't much use in a RAM drive. But if your hitting 7GB already, then you may want to get the overkill 16GiB to "future proof" your system.

 

For me, I got 16GiB because I was constantly maxing my 8GiB of RAM through my video editing workflow. Even with 16GiB, i've maxed out once already lol. Larger page file may help if your running low on RAM.

This. Plus 8gb will be easier to run on your board and IMC.

Alright, I'll take your word for it. If you are willing to spend that kind of cash to run (3x) 7970s and still only use 8gbs in your rig, then it must be enough biggrin.gif

8gbs it is, thanks for the input everyone.

Opps, I just noticed that rig has 16gbs in it!!!! *** thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Haven't updated lol. thumb.gif

It's true thoguh, running 16gbs at that speed is a bit harder than 8gb. With 8gb you just set it to 10/10/10/28/1t 14.8-1.5v and you're done.

For sure. Your 2600k build looks sick btw. Great job on the water cooling, I'm mad jealous of your skills/computer.

does any1 think the so-dimm version of this ram is good as well?

So what is the final verdict on using this Samsung in AMD rigs? I don't see anybody posting their specs in the AMD MaxxMemm page . From what I can glean from the few AMD users in this thread, this Samsung can run @ 1600 8-8-8-24 1.5 v with ease, but it has problems when trying to hit 7s? What kind of latency are people seeing with a rig similar to mine ? I have to go to town tonight (Phoenix) and I might just poke my head in Fry's. If I do, I might not be able to resist grabbing a set of these for $39.99. I have been thinking of doing a RAM upgrade for while now, but was hoping to get into some 7CL 1600 stuff. It is awful tempting to get 16 GB of this for the same price or less than 8 GB of some 1600 7 Cl.
Also, in the not so distant future I will be going FX (probably after Piledriver hits but ya never know) so the higher speeds (1866 CL8? drool.gif )with moderate timings will be more beneficial in that case than they will be to me with my current Phenom2 setup I guess. What say ye with AMD systems using this Samsung WonderMemory? Should I go for it? thinking.gif

Edit to add" @ihatelolcats: I see you have finally gotten your Samsung, and since your rig is as close to mine as I have seen using this memory, what results are you seeing? I see lots of Intel rigs getting down in the mid 40s for latency, I would be tickled pink if I could get down somewhere in the low 50s.With the best stable settings I can manage with my Corsair 4 GB (1626 8-8-8-24 1.7v NB 2448) is around 59 ns latency.

SODIMM are laptop ram only. Not desktop.
