So I just purchased the motherboard this morning and I'm super excited ASUS Maximus V Formula
. Can't wait for it to come.
I'm stuck in deciding the type of RAM I should go with for this Mobo and the amount I should get. I originally was expecting to go with the GeiL 16GB DDR 3 1600
but then I caught the overkill flu which is apparently contagious here in OCN
and wanted to upgrade it to a 2 x GeiL 16GB DDR 1600 kit for a total of 32GB.
As I've continued to do research, I've come across some online literature that stated using Windows 7 Home may have issues recognizing anything over 16GB.
So I decided to go with the G.SKILL Trident 16GB 2400 1.65v. I've researched and came across a posting that stated 1.65v may cause issues with the CPU (i7-3770k) as it is made to support 1.5v and using 1.65v can shorten it's life span.
Also read some stuff that stated anything over 1600 is unnoticeable in real world use and it only would be a waste unless you're benching which I don't plan on doing.
So which pair of ram would you guys recommend for the i7-3770k? Speed? Amount? Cost isn't an issue as I'm saving weekly to achieve my goals to make what will be a perfect PC for me. Just hope you pros out there can guide me to selecting a nice pair of ram.Edited by YourPappyz - 1/4/13 at 4:22pm
