In the market for new memory. Quick question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I currently have 2 2gb sticks of Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600 model number KHX1600C9D3. Im looking at some memory on newegg. Its 8gb, 2 sticks of 4gb Kingston HyperX blu red model number KHX16C9B1RK2. What is the difference between hyperx blu and hyperx blu red? They seem to have the same 1.65 voltage and timings of 9-9-9-27. So whats the difference? I plan on doing some small overclocking with the new memory, nothing major. Will this new memory hinder my overclock?

the difference between the two is the color, nothing else. if you can put $10 more to ram, you could get some samsung wonder ram and oc the heck out of them!
