Memory recommendation help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I want to build up a new rig with Intel i5-3570k and an Asus Maximus Gene V.
I was wondering what ram would be better?
8 Gb of Corsair Vengeance of G-skill Ripjaws X ? Which would be better?
If i get the 1600 versions, will they be ok, or the 2133 MHz ones will outperform better?
I am thinking to not buy the 2133 and to run at 1600 how it always was with the memories i had.
So what do you guys think?

Thanks in advance !

Hmm, what I would suggest is: Get some 1866MHz is RAM. You get a decent bandwidth. IVY has a very nice IMC so you could o.c. the RAM further if needed.
You wont see much of a difference in real world applications - so you wouldn`t really suffer from 1600ish RAM.
But if you really have the money and dont care about the price: Get the 2133ish RAM. Depends on your wallet.

Regarding the Brand: I would prefere G.Skill - but this is a personal choice.
If available, look if you can have a look at Samsungs.

THanks !
I can see there is this hype for these Samsungs. Are they really that good?
Everyone keeps recommending them. They seem so small yet they seem to be used a lot. Also the price is decent.

If you aren't going to be running synthetic benchmarks for the ram. Then the speed difference really will not matter to the average user. If you are going to be overclocking and doing stuff like that then it is a good thing to get. The samsung ram is very nice and is on the 30nm tech. It overclocks like crazy too. Plus the 1.3 volts gives you plenty of headroom to overclock and add voltage to. If the fancy ram heat sinks really doesn't matter. Then get the samsung ram but most like the shinny heat sinks that come on the ram. Most 1600 mhz ram will hit 1800 -2000mhz pretty easily to begin with. It honestly just depends on what you want and what you are going to use it for. Thanks

Thank you killer for a great insight.
So all in all, i think i will go for a 1600 version since the freq. will increase when i will do overclocking.
I can also notice from what you say, that the Samsungs are also better than g-skill because they have a low voltage which means it will be easier to increase it and oc them at a better rate than the g-skills?
( Ram overcloacks when the CPU is overclocked right? )

Yes the ram will go up in speed. But you can turn it back down also. Max on the G-Skill is about 2,000mhz. The samsung 30nm has been up in the 2,600mhz now in testing and reviews. If you like the g-skill and it is a color scheme that fits your pc get it. As they have it in blue and red schemes. If you don't care about the heat sinks and color get the new ram released bu samsung and be happy. Thanks
