Looking for 1.35v 2x8GB Kit

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Any recommendations. No more than $130. Looking for a decent manufacturer, prefer 1.35v, 2x8gb. Balance of good mhz and timings.
Was looking at this kit http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148663 but I've never owned a crucial part.
Only RAM I've ever used was mushkin and gskill.

Those will do perfectly, I just bought the same kit and I've used numerous crucial kits before. Crucial is top tier memory

Those are 2x4gb, OP needs/wants 2x8gb.

The ones linked in the OP are fine. Crucial is a pretty good memory company imo. I don't trust newegg reviews too much, but that ram does have a %100 rating from 9 people.

In addition to the kit that you linked, an alternate choice from Crucial is these, although they are currently out of stock at the Egg. Although their pricing is similar to the kit you linked, they are the C8 kit, instead of C9 at default clocks.

Crucial Ballistix Tactical 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLT2K8G3D1608ET3LX0

In addition to the Crucial, you could also look for these Kingston HyperX LoVo series. Seems like they are in short supply and at the moment a bit of a premium is being asked for them at those places that have stock.

How do you like them? Have you tried overclocking or tightening the timings while pushing them up to 1.5v?

I have been thinking of getting a set of the mushkins to keep at 1600mhz but try to tighten the timings and run them at 1.5v. Let us know how those crucials worked for you

ShopRunner 2 day shipping with Newegg turned into 5 day shipping so I won't be able to test them until Friday.
