Should I choose RAM for Asus Maximus IV Extreme and I7 2600k ?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi everybody,

I had a system like below.

Asus Maximus IV Extreme
Intel I7 2600k
High Power 750W
OCZ Vertex 2 SSD 60gb
Zotac GTX 465
Corsair Dominator GT 2133 mhz 2 x 2gb CL 9 ( CMT4GX3M2A2133C9 )

My memory is broken. I sent it to the supplier company. They said : "It cannot be repaired." They suggested he below rams insted of it.

G.SKILL RipjawsX (F3-17000CL9D-8GBXM) 8 GB Dual KIT (2x4GB) DDR3-2133MHz CL9

How is its performance than dominator gt ?
Should I want the dominator gt again?

I want to use the corsair's rams. Do you have another corsair ram that can suggest instead of gskill ? such as vengeance

I'd also recommend Samsung RAM (stable overclockers) as they are popular on this forum.

G.Skill makes excellent RAM, and while the Samsung memory is awesome there is absolutely no guarantee that they will run at any speed above what they are rated for, so while the chances may be very high that youccan get a good overclock, there is always a chance you won't.

I would suggest the Ripjaws Z over the X, as it's a newer series and appears to be much more flexible when it comes to overclocking and timings. The 16GB (4x4) Ripjaws Z 2133cl9 kit, which I have, is absolutely amazing. Stock it runs 2133 9-11-10-28 but most people have been able to get to 2400+ with almost no loosening of timings, and it is also very easy to drop the speed one notch and tighten the timings significantly. Here is what I have seen: 2400 @ 10-11-10-30, 2133 @ 9-10-10-28, 1866 @ 8-9-9-26/8-9-8-26, 1600 @ 7-7-7-24, and 1333 @ 6-6-6-22, all 24/7 stable and without any voltage increase. A slight bump to 1.625v can get 9-10-9 @ 2133 or 9-11-11 @ 2400.

All for $120. Very awesome.

I can only get it to run @ 1600Mhz, if I try and get it up to 1866Mhz it gives BSOD untill CMOS is cleared.

Look at others with seemlier mobo's/cpu and see if there RAM Mhz settings are what your looking for, also look for their cpu-z validation too.

if you still have the Asus Maximus IV Extreme mobo just make sure the ram is 1.5v

I started off with an 8Gb 1333 G.Skill Sniper kit for my MIVE, which worked perfectly. A year later I attempted to bump the speed up to 1600 with an 8Gb LP Vengeance kit, just to give Corsair RAM a shot, but ended up having stability issues during use, and on top of that they wouldn't hold their 1600 setting in BIOS after power cycling. I ended up switching back to G.Skill Sniper, this time 1866 -- with the silly little gun heatsinks, since they discontinued the earlier LP version with the "Crysis" artwork, and Newegg had them on sale at the time anyway -- and haven't had a problem since.

Not sure if it's just G.Skill in general, but this particular motherboard really likes the Sniper sticks at least. I'm thinking about trying out the 2133s next.

I say "GO FOR IT!" in regards to the 2133! The RipjawsZ 2133cl9 is just fantabulawesome(!?), by far the most flexible memory "kit" I have ever used. The Samsung low-voltage memory can hit some crazy speeds, but the G.Skill stuff is actually warrantied to work at 2133 9-11-10-28, and I have yet to see a single kit that couldn't get to at least 2200 with the same timings. I have also seen the kits drop to insanely tight timings of 6-7-6-18 @ 1600, or go all the way up to >2500 with something like 10-12-11-32 with only a single bump in voltage.

I will personally not buy anything but G.Skill anymore, because of how incredible this memory is (unless they do something to push me away, of course). They have proven themselves to me.

Should I be concerned about the 1.6-1.65V requirement for 2133 on an LGA1155 board? One thing I liked about the 1866 Sniper kit is that it's rated for this at 1.5V; was just playing it safe.

Why waste your time with expensive memory when you can buy SAMSUNG Green Low Voltage 8GB Kit thumb.gif and OC it to 2133MHz thumbsupsmiley.png ...See for yourself... http://www.overclock.net/t/1210482/samsung-2x4gb-low-voltage-ddr3-1600-kit-ocing-to-2400-discussion
