Mix them.

(My current MB has mixed sticks in dual channel and it works. I guess it would be an additional challenge for RIV BE.)

actually, Corsair upped their game with this kit I got, but the G.Skill set is subject to overall batch quality affecting OC with this newer kit. The problem with the G.Skills now isn't G.Skill's fault as they are limited by the IC's they can get their hands on, while Corsair revised their PCB, and that apparently allows these Samsung IC's to scale further than ever before. I hope to be able to investigate myself about how far the Corsair sticks go soon, with this board. I have the Z87-based ASUS boards too, and they have treated me well so far...

Meh. the platform is quad-based, and ram kits are SPD-programmed for running in quad or dual operation only. I do know how to set things up manually to be able to deal with SPD issues, no problem, but it's such a pain in the behind, I simply cannot be bothered. With the volume of reviews I gotta do, and what most end users will do, travelling down THAT path just doesn't make much sense for me when I can grab a quad set off my shelf easily enough.


What I need now, however, is a 64 GB kit in 8 sticks, so I can load BF4 onto a ramdrive. upsidedwnsmiley.gif

I bought that set because the timings were low and only required 1.5v

There are sometimes two g.skill sets of the same clock, one having lower timings. These use the samsung memory and are the same quality as the corsair for 1/3rd the price. Also, trident x has reached 4400mhz+ on this board thumb.gif

I heard they completely broke air combat and the only interesting aircraft is the bomber. So BF4 on RAMdrive isn't worthy. However you can try EU4, or HOI3.

Jesus... thats WAY overpriced.

Here's what I grabbed

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231590

32gb double the amount + on sale for like 20$ more 2400 speed and after reading up from the company/reviews found that you can set the timings to 9-11-11-28 respectively w/o changing the voltage.

I must really be missing something with corsair... lol

Oh yeah, I just remembered. Didn't some people already preorder the board? What were prices coming in at?

EDIT: Newegg prices them at 499, vs the 429 for the previous RIVE. Hmm. And heh, they also list this: Release Date: 11/19/2013
I guess I'm alright with this. Gotta wait for my scholarship to roll in anyway. tongue.gif

499$ flat across the board ( no pun intended ) + shipping/tax.

Hmm. Around 17% increased pricepoint between the old and new board on newegg. Though on ncix.com it's only 8%. Well, I guess I might as well guess the new board to be about 20% cooler--err, pricier, than its predecessor is at the current time.

Well, this upgrade is gonna hurt my wallet. biggrin.gif

Didn't ncix have them for CAD? CAD are less than USD.
