yes they are but that does not mean that fxs cant do it

i still highly recommend it

Anyone regret not getting 16gb? Its basically an extra $100 for 16...
Any thoughts on team xtreem 2400 cl10? Those are ~$50 more for 16gb set.
I play a lot of CPU intense games online BF3, planetside2. Think I will see much improvement? I'm running some pretty slow ram right now with my 8350 at 5ghz.
really it depends on you. for around the same price you can get 8 or 16gb the 8 are cl9 the 16 are cl10
if you want to bench go for the 4gb sticks if you want more ram go for the 16 gb sticks.
you can always try to double up the sticks ( all 4 dimms ) some fxs can and some cant. i can safely say there are much fewer who can all four dimms then can run just 2 esp on the 8 gb sticks ( more ram = more stress on the imc )
there are much fewer who cant run at least 2 sticks ( speaking of fx chips, specifically vishara, i dont know i would try this with bulldozer )

Well it's good to know now. When I get my new card I will be connecting the molex for the GPU just to be safe. I may have to upgrade to the 860.
really it is only useful with 3 or 4 gpus just so you know

the record on a 3rd or 4th gen i7 has absolutely zero bearing on what it will do in a FX rig.
Not all Fx's can do 2400mhz, maybe half a dozen of all the poster in this thread can manage it.
can your ram get past 2400? if it can how much head room do you have on your rig verses a rig you don't own that is more suited for OCing ram?
Just because the processor's IMC cannot handle 2400mhz on average, does not mean that the ram is a bad call.
this is why you buy your ram from a place that will do exchanges withing the first week or two.
Trident X is quite possibly some of the finest ramm modules available.
having that said, I wouldn't buy em until i was sure my chip could do those speeds. (to claifiy. this is @ 2400mhz speeds or higher)
To break it down into the simplest form possible. Trident X is G skills top bin right now AFAIK.
i would say it is much less who cant run it. much much less. tbh i only know of one person who couldnt run it out of maybe 15ppl who have tried

Is it worth it to get the trident x? I was hoping to try to get 2400 but I'm thinking I'll just stick with what I have.
it really is up to you ... if you want it yes it is worth it. if not 2133 is nice as well.
