Kingston HyperX Beast 16GB (2 x 8GB) for a z87 OC Force, Mistake?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi, I order this and its coming Thursday with the rest of my stuff for my 4770k setup. Did I make a mistake by getting this ram? I wanted over 8g, and the next lvl for duel channel was 16, and I was on a budget, and this was at a good price for me. And, I am using my PC for mostly gaming. Just want to check.

That's not a bad price for 2x8GB of DDR3-2400 memory IMO. I don't think you made a mistake at all. If you get adventurous, you might be able to run them a lot faster than that thumb.gif

The Team Xtreem kit has tighter timings for $5 cheaper.

never used Team and having heard much on them, so was scared of it.

This Team kit? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820313325

Not a bad option either. Team has a good reputation. The only difference is the Team kit likely uses Samsung 4Gbit chips, which can't clock much past DDR3-2500 whereas the Kingston uses Hynix 4GBbit which have been known to go up to 2800 or higher if they're really good. If you're not planning to overclock the memory though, go with the Team as it has tighter timings as target39 pointed out.
