Highest end RAM for Z77

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey so I am looking to buy a new z77 board and want some top notch RAM. All of the new stuff that utilizes the new frequency limitations on Ivybridge use 1.65v. So does anyone have any recommendation for the best 1.5v RAM.

P.S. I only want to fill 2 slots because of subzero OC

Most if not all "high end" ram that is rated for 2600mhz + runs on 1.65v. Is that what you plan on doing or do you want to run ram around 2000? All the new Gskill TridentX, the new Team Xtreem, and even ripjawsZ are all rated for 1.65v. It seems the ram that was marketed towards sandy bridge was 1.5v. Even the high end SB stuff was 1.65v.

Also, you're going to run the cpu subzero, but you're scared to run vdimm at 1.65v?

here is something about 1.5v recommendations for 2nd gen CPU's
Quote:
It says made for Z77 but is rated for 1.65v which Intel CLEARLY states is a no-no and highly recommends against it for Ivy Bridge (even for Sandy bridge for that matter)

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer

We can certainly clarify the confusion you may have. Intel does NOT support overclocking, so DDR3-1600 is the maximum frequency they suggest. As a result, DRAM Voltage is also limited at 1.50V (standard). This memory kit is clearly not average, or standard, so of course it will not follow Intel's guidelines. As you know, Intel has had this DDR3 limitation for Sandybridge and chipsets prior, so it is nothing new. If you do a quick search for performance DDR3 memory, everything is above 1.50V. Rarely is <1.50V memory considered high performance.

G.Skill produces the best (extreme) memory modules available on the market. Rest assured that the kits are tested for their specific platforms. With the proper settings, although much greater than Intel specifications, it will not harm your CPU. Similar to CPU frequency overclocking, 4.6GHz+ from 3.8GHz default (turbo) is common, but technically Intel does not support it. If you want to follow Intel and the standards, you will need to purchase DDR3-1600 CL11 or under.

Thank you
