What's your opinion on this?

So it seems there's no real difference whatever I choose? There's a ****load of ram around.
For each brand there's 2-6 different product lines to choose from.
G.Skill for example, Ripjaws (Z, X and whatnot), Ares, Sniper and more (Trident is one I think).
I decided to ask this time since the last time I purchased "some random ram in my price range" I ended up with this OCZ BS.

its a fairly well known fact that wen it comes to some of the best ram you can get for overclocking is whatever gskill is in your price range, corsairs dominators, are great as well, corsairs vengence ram is rock solid, low voltage and fairly reasonable on price, with moderate overclocking,

as far as the idea that more sticks make overclocking harder is a fallacy as long as you got better ram than offbrand x budget ram smile.gif

Thread Starter 
I've been reading a lot about G.Skill and Mushkin, they both seem to be very reliable and good in general, however for the same price I can get 2x8GB 1866 1.5v ram by G.Skill, I can get an identical Mushkin set that runs at only 1.35volts and from what I have heard they do well in overclocking as well.

Any insight on this? (And thanks for the suggestions I'll check on those as well, keep them coming)

Mushkin from my expirience is a good brand, but I would still go with the Gskill, they have overclocking in mind when they design there products, also you must realise that the 1866 ram will run off the bat at the rated voltage but will be at 1333 when you plug it in and is gaurenteed to get to 1866,
mind you i represent no company, and i dont know how Mushkin rates there ram, but i know for a fact that gskills 1866 is tested at 2000 and if it pases it becomes 1866, if not its tested at 1866, and sold as 1600, etc
this doesnt meen your guarenteed 2000 100% stable but it does give you some good oc potental guarenteed

I had a 3x2 GB Muskin Redline 1600 MHz kit on my old Asus Rampage III Extreme i loved those red RAM andi never had any problems or issues with them.
Sadly Mushkin is now very hard to find in Denmark

This.
If reliability is a higher concern than overclocking, I would recommend kingston.
All our graphics editing workstations have kingston sticks and none of them ever had ram problems.
