Newbie Question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've never overclocked before. I'm planning on buying the MSI Z77A-GD65 mobo and intend to use the OC Genie (Only mild overclocking). I wanted to know what type of RAM should I use?

I have the option of the Kingston DDR3 4GB 1333hz valueram (I'd like atleast four of these) and then a large variety of Corsair vengeance rams listed on this page:

http://www.galaxy.com.pk/form023.html

One thing that worries me about the corsair vengeance in that it's heat sinks/spreaders might interfere with the CPU cooler fan which is the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO.

I have no experience with overclocking at all and I want to use the safest and most stable configuration for OCing.

RAM is so cheap nowadays you're better off getting a decent set of RAM. Have a look at Corsair Vengence Low profile; it doesn't have the huge heat sinks that the standard vengence have. I would also recommend Kingston - here.
8GB would be suffice for your needs.
