Thanks a lot, and I'm not sure if you remember or not but you are the one who helped me with some sound issues that I had . It turns out that it was the Mobo that was bad. So thanks for that smile.gif.

And I am pretty sure I am just going to get the samsung ram, even though I have never OC'd anything really (just getting into it) its nice to have the option available once I do get to OCing RAM.


Thanks guys smile.gif and sorry for posting in the wrong area... like I said I could have sworn I clicked on 'intel memeory'.

Ok I take back my last statement, I am not sure what ram I want anymore, I just realized that I can use DDR3. I don't know why I forgot this or if it even changes the fact that the samsung is the best I can get. The only thing I don't know is what the MAJOR difference in dual channel and tri channel memory is...

I mean for now the samsung is at the top of the list... but anyone show something better I will take a look. Price really doesn't matter (unless it is like that 400 dollar kit, which I don't want). The price doesn't matter because all the parts that I have are more then good enough and if I were to get any replacement parts it would be something like a replacement mobo or CPU which would cost more then $200.

so like I said, if anyone can show me a DDR3 that would be better then getting 16 GB of the samsung, I will definitely take a look. And also what exactly are the benefits of tri channel as opposed to dual channel?

It's actually surprisingly simple. smile.gif The motherboards for the first generation i-Series systems (like systems with the i7-920 or something) all had triple channel, usually with a total of 6 slots. The motherboards for the 2nd and 3rd generation i-Series (like 2500K or 3570K) all have dual channel, usually with 4 slots.

In other words, your motherboard is a dual channel board, so stay with dual channel kits. Although, you can buy a triple channel and just use two of the modules. Or buy a triple channel kit and one single. Or you can buy two individual modules or even four. Although, it's far better (and easier) to buy a 2-module kit or a 4-module kit instead.

So the Samsung kit may still be the best that you can get. However, it's all up to you. We're just your guides. smile.gif The only thing I ask is this: if you get the Samsung kit, remember to manually set the memory voltage to 1.35V.

So yeah, if everyone is correct about the Samsung kit (I believe that they are), then I say get it. It's an 8 GB 1600 MHz kit (2 x 4 GB), so that's perfect.

Here's a good review on the Micron chips I posted on page 2.

The only problem with the samsung ram is I am a complete and utter newb when it comes to overclocking anything. I have never done it before and I am a little scared to, because i have this awful luck when it comes to me trying something new on a computer for the first time. I mean if there is a good detailed guide how to do it I would be able to do it with no problem... but on my own I have no idea what I should do.

I vote for the Samsung RAM..ever since Pioneer recommended it so strongly and I got it..Thanks again pioneer! :thumb.gif: It does all the frequencies
with good timings..clocks high..clocks low..AMD..Intel..same timings for both..7-8-8-20 @ 1600 9-10-10-28-96 @ 2133 ..those timings hold for up to 2246 AFAIK

The samsung ram is actually alot easier to OC than alot of other ram. When i first got mine i set them to 2133 @ 11-11-11-28 with 1.55V and it was rock solid. right now ive got them at 10-11-11-28 on 1.5v thumb.gif
