Is this the best memory choice for me?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm using a Sabertooth Z87 motherboard.

Considering buying this memory. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226434

I don't know anything about Mushkin memory but their other memory seems to get good reviews. This memory is also 2133 and the Sabertooth Z87 will only go to 1866 but I don't think that's going to be a compatibility problem...right?

(Open to suggestions as well. Need to have a 32GB combo. All black sticks only)

I think that ou can still install DDR3-2133 and just manually set it to DDR3-2133. It just doesn't natively support it in such a way where you would be able to just install it and forget it. Instead, you'll have to install it and set it manually.

It's a computer!

I don't know much about Mushkin other than I haven't heard anything bad about them.


this memory has a good name for itself. I haven't personally used this but reviews are almost always positive.

You could check out Gskill. They've always worked for me.

Check to see if the memory has XMP. If it does then it can set the necessary frequency and timings on its own.
