Help G.Skill Trident 2000 or G.skill sniper 1600

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys! I need some help upgrading my current PC and I was looking at some RAM modules and I came up with these 2:
G.Skill Trident 2000
G.skill sniper 1600

Which of the two would you choose? Can I even run 2000mhz RAM? And do I need to buy triple channel memory or I can just buy 3 dual channel memory?

How about the 30nm Samsung rams? Not the best looking ram out there, but they are extremely low profile and can be overclocked to >2000MHz without a hitch.

Thanks for the reply sir but those are the only triple channel RAMS i can find here. Are these RAMs troublesome?

these ^^^ if you can get them in the Philippines without importing. i know i cant get them here in Thailand..

i would just stick with 1600 RAM as you wont notice any real world difference in most applications.

as to triple channel and dual channel kits, it doesnt matter, what matters is that you use 3 sticks or multiples of if you want triple channel smile.gif

What strych9 said.

I have the Gskill sniper then I heard about the samsung sticks. I kick myself for not getting them.

The OC so damn high and totally stable. My buddy has them running at 2133 without a hiccup for about 2 months now.

The Gskill snipers are a 1600 kit and that is where they stay. I can't even touch the timings without a bsod.
