I do motherboard reviews for techpowerup, so maybe Avexir made sure my sticks were good.. in fact, they even tested them as a complete kit of 8 sticks on RIVBE for me and gave me screenshots. I have a video of the sticks running on my youtube channel, too, since they got the fancy lights. well..maybe not fancy...but lights, for sure. tongue.gif

Avexir stuff is a bit higher priced, but has the looks I like.

G.Skill for excellent prices, and good OC potential with some kits.

Corsair for known ICs and awesome warranty (if RMA'd sticks are not in stock, they double memory amount, or give refund in my experience).

I do board reviews, so QVLs are meaning less to me personally.. I had multiple RIVBE samples before there even was a QVL.

Yet, if you know how to tune ram, then going with QVL is not required, for sure, but if you want easy "plug-and-play", then QVL is what to go by.

Should i jsut order averix 32GB and customize them cause i love the look of them and they were about 410$ but i can have a custom engraving and have the leds match my theme. It will give me more time to plan since everything i need may take up to two weeks to arrive anyways. That is enough to start on sleeving the psu and planning the build better. Build log is here.

If you know how to tune ram, I'd say go for it. If not, you'll have to hope they work OK(they should, really, and if not, Raja@ASUS here on this forum will be glad to help I am sure), otherwise, you might be spending more than you want to just for looks...


I also got the Avexir Blitz 1.1 stuff because the heatsink is easily removable (it even boasts this on the box the DIMMS come in), and when running LN2, heatsinks can be a pain.

I just ordered these. I didn't need 32GB, I really don't even need 16GB. LOL We will see how these work.

I have only doen gpu and amd cpu overclocking since my phenom II x4 940 seems way easier to overclock i have ot relearn hwo to properly overclok the i7 4903k with the eco features it has and never done any kind of ram tuning/overclocking. Should i just get the g.skill and call it a day since they will be way better than any 1600mhz ram anyways and with the possibility to overclock them higher.

When not usong the headphones I run a 2.1 speaker set up. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

You just need to wait on the OP - LunaP - to make an appearance. Have a little patience. Not every club thread's OP visits & updates the club list every day. If you go back a couple pages you'd see mention by LunaP that work's been keeping him pretty busy these days.

Pretty much summed it up tongue.gif that + a faulty board/CPU gives me not much ability to be here other than when at work, been almost a month and a half now w/ asus support, curious how long others have had to wait just for a response.

I would love to have 32GB for a ramdisk and overall for more cushion in case i do use the 16GB. I will be gaming, video, photo and audio editing/encoding. Also I will be experimenting with virtual machines and running a minecraft server. All help is appreciated i need ot get a decision asap so i can order all the parts for the new build.

You can't go wrong with the 2133 16 gb gskill ones. I've got them. I just set XMP and rolled on no problems so far I've been star all the way to 4.8 on my 4820k.

I think if the fan is running to slow you will get the error msg. Try another fan or go into bios and change the rpm warning to a lower speed.

Is the ek water block for this board really worth getting for overclocking or is it running on air good enough?
