Please recommend me RAM for my ASUS P8Z77-V Pro/Thunderbolt

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've always used Supermicro for my boards and went with their memory recommendations (of which thankfully they didn't have too many). Now I'm thinking I'd like to overclock my **** and went with ASUS P8Z77-V Pro with Thunderbolt I know little about overclocking and would like to hear some recommendations for 32 GB of RAM. The build is the aforementioned board with i-3770K (with Noctua NH-D14 air cooler), a relatively basic EVGA GT520 video card (I don't game), 3 SSD's, 3 HDD's, and 32 GB of RAM - the brand and model to be determined. The system will be mostly used for audio production - recording and mixing. Mixing in particular is RAM/CPU-hungry - various plug-ins, hardware processor emulations, and virtual instruments eat resources like crazy. Looking for speed, stability, and longevity (at least 5 years). Thanks much for your help.

This is pretty fast and has low timings.

I am looking at the same thing with the Noctua cooler and putting Cosair Vengence in all four RAM slots. Were you able to mount the cooler with all four slots filled with the high profile RAM?

I just ordered RAM yesterday and it hasn't arrived yet. I ordered low profile sticks - Crucial Ballistix - and hopefully will not have the problem with the Noctua fitting over the RAM. In your case from what I've seen on youtube you can mount the fans on Noctua on the opposite side of the RAM modules (towards the back of the case). This hopefully should allow you to install tall RAM.
