Is this kit good?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am building a rig on socket 1366 with P6T Deluxe/OC Palm and an i7 920 and I want to buy a memory kit. I found a good price on this kit KHX1600C9D3K3/12GX. So is this kit good and can it handle OCing?

Hey,

Congrats on getting a LGA 1366 system. Wish I could get it. But no, that's not the best set of RAM for overclocking. Here's the best set that I've seen do overclocks on HERE. If you can throw about six dollars out for those Ultra Ram heatsinks that just clip on the stick, then those puppy's will do you some great service to your system.

I would find another kit if you are going to try and overclock. Do you have a larger list then this kit? If you can put up a little more options. We can help out a bit more. Because I have no clue what you can get in your location. Thanks

This site has some kits I can buy but the thing is I'm on a tight budget and this kit is the cheapest 12GB kit. So the next option is to go to a better 6GB kit. I consider this one: CMZ6GX3M3A1600C9.

Bump!

So what do you guys think is it better to have a faster 6GB kit (CMZ6GX3M3A1600C9) or a slower 12GB kit (KHX1600C9D3K3/12GX)?

So I dag around and found that the Kingston kit uses Hynix H5TQ2G83AFR ICs. Are this good?
