Which RAM?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey,
I'm using a Intel i3 3225 on a Mini ITX board
The board can take up to 1600MHz DDR3 240Pin RAM
I'm looking at these 3

Patriot 1600MHz - $39.79
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Patriot-DDR3-PC-4GBX2-PC3-12800-1600MHZ-240Pin-Non-ECC-LO-Dimm-Upgrade-8GB-Pair-/300780600974?pt=UK_Computing_ComputerComponents_MemoryRAM_JN&hash=item4607ebbe8e&_uhb=1#ht_4993wt_1266

Kingston 1333Mhz - $39
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Kingston-8GB-DDR3-KIT-2-x-4GB-1333MHz-CL9-NEW-AUSTRALIAN-WARRANTY-/280950230944?pt=AU_Components&hash=item4169f04fa0&_uhb=1#ht_719wt_98585

Corsair 8GB 1600MHz Low Profile Vengeance- $49

I like the look of the Kingston over the Patriot because of the low profile, I will be not doing any overclocking at all

Also the Samsung ram isn't really available in Australia (If I want it it's gonna cost me $70+!!)

Thanks

I wouldn't touch the patriot or the kingston... Stick with the corsair, it'll be fine and it's got good frequency and timings... Do you know someone who can ship you the memory from the US?

Nope, looks like I might be going with an Intel Thin Mini ITX board now anyway so Notebook RAM it is tongue.gif

Is there any disadvantage of a Thin Mini ITX over Mini ITX?

Not that i'm aware of, you'll obviously have limitations on upgradability and some parts might be more expensive, when you say thin m-atx don't you mean ITX orsomething?

Thin Mini ITX is Intel's new ITX design, same size just thinner.
ITX I mean normal thickness ITX.
