Crucial can't clock over 2400mhz with good timings, whereas SOME Samsung can, but they are limited by the slim pcb.
I posted a review showing a decent set, you get 16gb without straining your IMC that much and can do 2133mhz or 2400mhz with really good timings for 8gb modules, and more than enough for most people out there.

EDIT: Here it is...

I just want stable 1866 CL8 or 2133 CL9, you think that's doable? Also I only need for 8GB for my PC usage. I don't do anything that's memory intensive.

Then you'll be fine with the Samsung ram, if you want cl9 at 2133mhz the Crucials might be better, but only worth it if you intend to go for 16gb in the future.
Look for batch 1229 and higher for Samsung ram, perhaps you got a local store where you can pick them up and check the batch no.?

Naw no local stores, closest place is a 5 hour drive. I might just snag the crucial, haven't tried it before and dont know many people that have. Also my brother just sent me a $50 gift certificate for newegg so maybe I'll get the 4x4GB kit for $80. We'll see. But I don't need crazy frequencies just tight timings. Even the stock 1600 CL8 would make me happy, but 1866 CL8 would be even better!

Get the 8gb 1.35v crucial sticks, or the led equipped 1866mhz ballistix tactical tracers if you want some gorgeous ram. Both clock good, but not as high mhz as Samsung.
Tacticals have leds and look GREAT xD
post #6106 of 33576
can you link the tracers your talking about? they don't make those in 1.35v do they? I would buy whatever can get me 1866/2133 cl8/9.

I'm gonna get the 2x4GB low profile CL8. The LED ones are cool but I have about 6 LED fans and two LED light strips in my case, it's pretty much lit up like a christmas tree. Plus this stuff is cheaper and I can use the ASUS rebate card I have to get a decent air cooler and my $50 giftcard and not really come out of pocket at all.

Cool!

I'm running a used PSC kit, 2x2gb 2000c9, clocked them at 1866mhz cl7-9-7-24-2t with 1.65v, pretty decent for a G620 cpu.
So far gaming with tons of tabs open I don't go over 2gb ram usage, so I'd say ram size is overrated lol

Okay I reapplied my CLP and have achieved better temps.. So here is my application for joining the delid club..

Bigdale7
i5 3570K
CLP on die and on the IHS (H100)
Can now run 5.0 as daily OC - 4.7 before delid + 300 mgz
haven't yet tested for max OC.. was 5.3
Lapped the IHS, finished with 1500 grit.
Tested before and after with Prime95 at 4.7 ghz
Hotttest core was 86C - Hotttest core now 78
