RAM for i7 950

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I need some new RAM for my Asus Rampage II Extreme + I7 950 rig.
I was going to hold off on buying RAM, since I will upgrade my cpu when Haswell comes around, and I was expecting DDR4 to hit by then. But as I have understood, Haswell will come with DDR3 for at least the first 6 months.

Basically I want some really fast/good RAM, my 950 is OC'ed to 4.3ghz, and I am in doubt of what to get. I was wondering if 12gb Corsair Dominator GT 1866mhz would be a good choice? I have read excellent reviews of it, but those reviews are also fairly old. Price is not really a concern, I just want the best I can get for my 950, that will also be somewhat future-proof.

I have this:

It is truly great ram and can be overclocked very well, and it is super low profile as well. I'm sure many people can second this recommendation here.
