Need Advice Haswell or Ivy

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I can either buy two of these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148655
Or one of these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226382

Which one should I go with and why? Will the latency of one of them be better for matching with another pair in the future? And will either be compatible with both socket boards?

I am no RAM expert, but I'd really like to buy just one of those Crucial, but feel will have a hard time finding the exact timings and profile in the future?

and one of this -35070K or 3770K since you will find a ton of threads and good advise not to mention solid bios

Oh sorry wasn't asking which CPU specifically. I meant with either of those work with both.

I saw the link. Since Haswell and Ivy both have a limit of 32gb and most MOBOs or the ones I'll buy will use only 4 pins, I'm trying to avoid X2 4gb sticks. Though, those speeds are faster *drools*

Sorry for bump, but anyone can give me a solid judgement? The Corsair deal will run out soon.

I'm a big fan of Mushkin ram. My old redline which is 7-7-7-18(discontinued model) still runs fine today. As for Crucial, many will say they are good but I had a terrible experience back in the DDR2 era, some reason the ram will not run T1 on the advertised speed.

Both ram will work with Ivy and Haswell since we're still in the DDR3 era for another couple years. It might be harder to get the timings/voltage right on the crucial since it's sold individually because there could be several batches in Newegg's stock and they just stick a hand in the basket and grab a random one if I'm assuming you're going to get 16gb. But this depends on whether or not you need the extra room for your heatsink or not. They are almost roughly the same speed due to the timings...If you're tight on budget I'd say Crucial then since it's on sale after all.

The Crucial RAM is low profile which is extremely cool. You will never have a cooler clearance problem because it slims all the way down to the memory slot. Also, I've generally seen them consume less voltage and still produce high overclocks because there is less PCB to cover, and I am guessing less chips to power, less points of failure, etc.

Wow both solid posts and points. Price is negligible as the difference is only a few dollars, but I can get 3 of the Crucials for 24gb, would there be any point to that? I hear there is no tri-channel on the newer boards. I haven't decided on a heatsink, but I guess if I get the Mushkins, big air heatsinks should be out of the question? Would it be easier to find ram with similar timings to the Mushkins compared to the Crucials later? I am now leaning towards the Crucial, but Kiros your point about Mushkin reliability is really helpful. I won't be able to test these until at least 2 weeks or so. Based on that any concrete decision or is it still murky waters?
post #8 of 13
It depends on the heatsink, I think the Mushkins will fit with my Noctua cooler despite being so massive.
As for tri channel yes it is pretty useless because current motherboards only support dual channel, Unless you jump into the Enthusiast chips like the 3820, 3930K or X those support quad channel. tri channel wasn't very popular for some reason.

Now if the Samsung ram was still around and still priced at 45 dollars I'd totally recommend it. As for the two rams,....this is where I flip a coin to decide lol.
I just love mushkin because they are reliable and of course they have a cutesy name. Crucial should be pretty good too because of the low profile design.

Awesome, yeah you're right, it's all about the heatsink. I might be able to get a 3770k cheap soon so then I'll be able to budget for a heatsink. My Newegg cart still has the Shell Shocker prices. I hope it stays that way rolleyes.gif

Thanks for all the help and totally right, I'm a repressed anime fan so that Mushkin name is the main reason I'm considering it lol.

what do you guys think of this memory ....


Cas Latency: 10
Voltage: 1.5V
Multi-channel Kit: Dual Channel Kit
Timing: 10-10-10


to go with 3770k, gigabyte sniper 3 motherboard...


i want to start with that for now cause i got them for cheap but want to have 32gb eventually. can i add to that or do i have to get all 4 of the same? i'm not an overclocker but would love the option...
