Need help deciding on memory

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all, I am looking for some higher bandwidth memory and to max out my memory slots on my system. I currently run an ASUS Sabertooth x79 with a 3930k. I have contacted G.skill to see what they suggested and this was the response I got:

Dear Customer

The Sabertooth may have issues reaching DDR3-2400. Manual tweaks and boosting the VCCSA Voltage may be necessary to get it stable. We generally recommend the X79 Deluxe or Rampage IV models for DDR3-2400+

32GB can be very stressful for the motherboard.

Thank you
GSKILL SUPPORT

Does anyone on the forum have experience with this board? I am looking to purchase a set within 48 hours for the Newegg sale. I am deciding between:

2 sets of these at 2133mhz
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231564

or these at 2400mhz
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231523

Would it be ok to just buy the 2400mhz one and downclock it if it doesn't run stable?

2133C9 and 2400C10 kits should be based on the same Samsung revision B chips and hence will overclock roughly the same.
