You looking for a 2x8GB kit only or 2x4GB kits fine? Also, if you don't want to have the hassle of OCing, then that's a fine deal though $139 is on the high side. My kit was $70 normal price and with a gift card and Christmas sale, went down to $40. tongue.gif

8gb total is enough. That's coming from someone with a 16gb setup then let go of 8gb to put on my mum's rig. Nothing to do with money, as the ram I have is only £35 for 8gb

Swag,
Wow that's cheap. I thought to go with 2x8 instead of 4x4 since it gives me the opportunity to add more, fewer sticks to deal with, and as you taught me - fewer sticks are easier to oc your chip.

TD,
When I work I have a lot of programs open, and I do mean a lot, some of which are ram hogs. I have 8gb on an old machine and while it does the job it is not quite enough.

As for Asus as a company...they have 0 support for barebones in Europe.
They in fact tell you when you call them to go to the resellers. Why the heck don't they also provide support? Ridiculous for a company like that. I'll never buy as rubbish ever again.

They charge you first before even seeing the board, nor they guarantee it can be repaired yay for Asus support lol
I actually like their bios so much I don't care...but for daily drivers I'd go with a Gigabyte ud3h, but not for me.

It is not like 2400 ram costs that much, so would that do for most people, or you like to find lower speed ones that overclock well?

I got old 2gb sticks, that can do cl7-11-7-28-1t at 2400mhz, and they costed $25.
So far I could boot at 2600mhz cl8-12-8-28-1t with 1.85v lol

Do you need 16gb? I doubt you do, unless you are a heavy video editor, or cad drawer dude...
If not, the cheap 2400mhz trident x kits are fine. 69usd at the Egg atm...There are cheap 4x4gb kits too, I'd get those over 2x8gb any day of the week. (most use week Hynix mfr chips which are capable of being 4gb single sided, or 8gb double but kinda suck normally)

Well, good to hear someone actually learns. Have too many people PM me for something that I already told them... tongue.gif

Also, I'd probably just invest in a 2133 kit and OC it. Not hard to OC a 2133 kit to 2400. If you can get a great deal on a 2400 kit, then go for it! Also, look at the timings. Anything above 12-12-12 sucks and will be worse than a 2133 10-10-10...

I got the 2x4 2400 trident kit, it's actually pretty good.

Haven't tried OCing them, but I know they do run great at 2400 with 1.52 volts (instead of the 1.65 spec)

Thanks for all the responses guys.

Swag,
Any chance I can convince you to do a ram overclocking guide? The ones I have looked as so far were not very good. Even if it doesn't make a bid difference, I would still like to learn how to do it correctly.

You got some headroom there...they might be good for 2666mhz with 1.65v thumb.gif

Hmm, I could but it'd be the basic. I haven't seen a new RAM OCing guide for Ivy Bridge since there is a lot of speculation of it not being able to run Vdimm higher than 1.50. Should I?
