World record RAMs there. :yessir.gif:

Haha. That is the RAM I posted in my link. Ok, I feel good about my choice then. I jones'n to get this thing built. Two more weeks and I'll have all my parts.

Thanks for the help/vote of confidence regarding this topic y'all.

I am not a big bencher, so when picking RAM I simply went with the kit that had the best reviews for the best price, which turned out to be the G.Skill Ripjaws Z DDR3 2133 9-11-10-28 16GB kit. It is really nice, and while it runs at 1.65v, you really shouldn't get caught up in voltage... 1.65 is more than perfectly safe, and I was sold on the RAM after Cadaveca @ TPU got his kit running at 2400 10-11-10-30 @ 1.65v! That's really good for a quad-channel kit from any manufacturer, and even better is the fact that it can also be dropped from 9-11-10-28 to 9-10-10 at 2133 and occasionally 9-10-9. Dropping speed to 1866 and you can more than likely get 8-9-8 and @ 1600 I have seen lots of people get to CAS7.
The Samsung RAM is nice, but remember that while many people have had great results, there are zero guarantees that you will get anything above the rated specs. The G.Skill kit, on the other hand, is guaranteed to the rated specs and their lifetime warranty includes replacement if it doesn't perform as such.

All that for $130, it's seriously the best deal for an X79 build that isn't a benchmark machine (and even then it will hold its own).

+1 for the Samsung RAM but I'm not sure if those heatsinks will work. Those Samsungs are made on new 30nm tech and they are low profile. But the think is I don't think you need heatsinks and the RAM is so short you won't notice it. It's as tall as the white things that hold it at the DIMM slot.

I own a leatherman. I can make anything fit....ANYTHING. LOL

anyone know if the Samsung will fit stock on the xigi heatspreaders without alteration?

Now my quest has lead me to Corsair Dominator Platinum RAM. [=http://www.corsair.com/en/memory-by-product-family/dominator-platinum-ddr3-memory.html][/] Looks like its the cream of the crop. Now that's a bit pricey. $329.00 for a 16GB 4x4gb kit that's 2400mhz, cas9, 1.5v. Now that's a monster kit.

That's the only reason I'm even considering spending so much on my ram. I want the guarantee of hitting the OC that my mobo & ram says it'll hit for ram. If the corsair doesn't even pass 1 test once you get it home they'll take it back for life. Deal.
