It does make sense for it to be weightlifting, you need tons of power everywhere to run it, not just in the CPU.

I built my rigs to be "NFS-compatible", else i'd gone with half the RAM i used. Also, there are very few projects that eat as much RAM, so you could practically run anything you want.

Well it looks like NFS may be the project we have voted on, so I through an extra set of mismatched ram in my system that I had laying around to see how it would work. Now I have 16Gb of 1600Mhz ram running just fine together. Later I will see if I can get the factory 1600 up to the Tridents factory 2400mhz? Anyone have any experience with doing this? Any advice would be welcome. smile.gif

NFS got my vote.

I needed a reason to instal the 24 GB of Samsung memory that is sitting on my desk. biggrin.gif

I have never tried running NFS with differnt RAM speeds to see if times could improve. It'd be a very interesting experiment.

Still it is very RAM demanding. It is the only thing that can make my Sammies get warm, and i mean warm over case temperatures. Plus i've had several issues where Windows starts complaining about low RAM and autiokills the WU, making it automatically abort tongue.gif

I actually decided to donate one of the kits to the BGB after I saw your WTB thread. thumb.gif

Well, whoever got it better put it to good use biggrin.gif

I plan to make a silent BOINCer rig, namely my current Audiophile one. As the computer will be used for audio creation and edition, it doesn't need a lot of power, but it needs to be friggin silent. And i plan to upgrade that i3-550 to an i7 8xx, so i will need more RAM in the future (not now, too broke tongue.gif)

It's still one of the most sought after RAM kits. While there are other options under other brands, these are also the most recognizable ones. IMHO; these are some of the most versatile OCers since the Elpida Hypers.
