Need RAM

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Here is my build

ASUS p8z77-V
Intel 3rd Generation Core i7-3770K CPU
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo Processor cooler (to be added later)
Corsair Vengeance LP 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory???
LiteOn iHAS124 SATA DVD Write Optical Drive
Sapphire HD 6870 1GB GDDR5 Graphics Card
Seagate 1TB Barracuda SATA 6Gb/s 64MB 7200RPM Hard Drive

I need the following for my new build:
- 2 x 8GB ddr3 (to keep the option open for adding another 2 x 8GB RAM later on)
- At least 1600 Mhz
- Would be nice to have some overclocking available in needed in the future

I have found the following:
Corsair ddr3 (low profile)
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/16gb-...oogle+shopping
Corsair Specs
http://www.corsair.com/en/memory-by-...m4x1600c8.html

OR

Corsair ddr3 (high profile)
http://www.corsair.com/en/memory-by-...m4x1600c9.html

I checked the specifications, but just wanted to check a few things

Few questions:
1) Anyone have any experience this RAM?
2) Is having the higher profile option worthwhile? I guess this helps with the cooling? There is not much price difference between the two.
3) If you feel there are better alternatives for the price (or for a bit more)?

I look forward to your comments.

Thanks

Some people will disagree, but I find Corsair products to be pretty top notch and their after sale (for my self) has been excellent.

The only downsides to that RAM is; Heat-sinks are massive, so it can be a problem for bigger, overflowing air-coolers. Your Hyper 212 should be fine, but if you plan to go bigger later... Might cause some issues. But, the heat-sinks can be removed if you need to. Almost completely aesthetic anyway imo.

And the RAM doesn't overclock well compared to some of the other stuff out there.

Mayhaps others will add to that, or fix anything I may have been mistaken on.

Thanks, I decided to go for the low profile corsair RAM, so hopefully this keeps my options open for other cooling option in the future.
