Do you think crucial are a good brand? And have you heard anyone talk about this ram?

IME Crucial RAM is fine. I have used quite a bit of it over the years. I stopped using it when they gave me a difficult time on warranty coverage for a DIMM that went bad.

BTW, I don't buy funky RAM with glowing LEDs but if that's your thing, go for it. biggrin.gif

Any one of those looks good, personally I have had excellent results using GSkill with AMD as their Ripjaws seem to run great. As far as latencies go I have built many AM2+ and AM3 platforms and latency never seemed to have much affect on performance with good high speed ram 1333 and up.

What I would reccomend is using RAM that will run at or beyond the max OC value for you're board. For instance my Asus board supports overclocking to 2000MHz. So I bought a sweet matched kit of 2133 Muskin Enhanced Blackline. Prior to this I had a few differnt RAM setups on this board, from a very low latency Kingston Hyper X Genisis 1333 with 7 7 7 21, to ADATA 1333 with 9 9 9 24. Next I tried GSkill Ripjaws X 1600 9 9 9 24 and finally the Muskin 2133 running at 2000 with 10 10 10 30 timings.

The higher frequency RAM ran far better and gave noticable improvements in responsiveness while gaming and showed a decent performance increase with synthetic benchmarks as well.

FWIW-

Testing on both AMD and Intel desktop PCs has shown that with DDR3 RAM there is little to no tangible performance gains in real world applications on desktop PCs once you get above ~1333 MHz.

AMD Llano/APUs are the exception as both the CPU and GPU can access the higher frequency and that does improve real world performance. Increased frequency is best with the APUs. Latencies don't make any tangible diff.

As the frequency increases one clock cycle becomes less and less in real time. Since the DDR3 RAM isn't a bottleneck there isn't much to be gained. Some folks have OC'ed the FX CPU RAM to 2400 MHz. and seen ZIP for performance gains because the RAM is not limiting performance.

Benches will show a little improvement but that doesn't seem to transfer to real apps. for most folks.

Intel has even announced they will stick with DDR3 until 2014 because it's not a bottleneck.

go with them ballistix,timming are good,nice find,i might even buy those myself for my new system.

i have the same board over on the side over there.it did have 8gb of geil 1333mhz in it ,so yes it can take 4 strips and its able to overclock the bus to reach 1600mhz ,but its a 1333 board if i remember right.
