i7-4770K Haswell, best memory for overclocking?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to decide on which memory to buy for my i7-4770K Haswell chip. I'm looking for 16gb (2x 8gb) of ram. I'm also planning to be able to overclock it to 4.5ghz and still have the possibility to push it to 4.8ghz in the future. If anyone could advise me on the best/fastest memory with great timings (not too overpriced) that would still allow me to overclock that high, that would be great!

mobo : MSI Z87-G45

You overclock the CPU independant of the memory so just choose either 1600 or 2133mhz ram with cl9 timings.

Gskill ripjaws, corsair vengence, mushkin redline all decent.

G.Skill TridentX gets my vote. Would fit your colour scheme nicely as well.

Thanks for input. Which mhz would be better for me and does it matter, 1600mhz vs 2400mhz etc?

I genereally just pick teh speed I want to run at. You cant run 1600MHz at 2400MHz but you can always run 2400MHz a bit lower if your particular CPU cant handle it. Get the higher speed kit
