G-Skill Aires or Patriot Viper Extreeme

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Asus Maximus V Gene
i5-3570k
Samsung 840 250GB ssd

I am putting a minimum of 16gb 2x8 sticks in my new build

Originally I settled on Patriot Viper Extreeme 1866 16gb 2x8 CAS 9-11-9-27 for $124.00

But newegg has G.SKILL Ares Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866
CAS 10-11-10 for the same price when you include tax on their shell shocker

or should I save 60$ and go with a lower end 2x8 kit?

Thanks

P.S. The reason for large ammounts of memory is because of quite a bit of HD high bitrate video editing I do. and I may end up creating a ram disk/cache.

Neither,

They both suck in comparision to the Sumsung magic memory

Even with the HD video, you'll be fine with 16gb

I am grateful for your input,

Though I can't convince myself to use 4GB sticks at this time, I'm a bit OCD and that 32 number being attainable, at least later on down the road, is a prerequisite in my mind

Size matters way more than speed, so I'd go for the Ares now that those are cheap.

Yeah I've been seeing more people using 1600 ram anyway saying there's barely a performance increase. a CAS latency increase by1 factor should be worth twice the memory for the same price

Thanks

If you are fully aware that anything more than 8GB of 1600mhz for anything that doesn't have to deal with rendering or video editing is a complete waste of money right?

The most "performance" you will see is if you take 26GB of your ram and turn it into a ram drive.

Yes, I have been reading on this subject since august trying to make up my mind. and I do realize that more than 8 is useless for games. I do quite a bit of rendering and would be very happy with more productivity when i edit and render these high bit-rate video files. the ram drive was my main aim when going with the 32gb.

I am greatful for your input

I ended up purchasing the 32gb 1866 G-skill Aires kit from newegg for $109.99, about $120 with tax and free shipping.

Thanks to all who replied,

Then why post anything?

Dumbest, comment, ever. Why should he get 32gb when he's not going to use it.

What? At what point did you think that post was a good idea? 1 point on the cas isn't worth twice the memory, go research your facts.

Oh, who told you about 26gb of RAM, whoever it is, is wrong. I've had a RAM disk and it's kinda pointless. Although you're right about the 8gb @1600mhz

Studying since august? really? You didn't learn anything, no offense but you didn't.

Worst, opinion, ever!
