What is good ram to get?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
So 4GB of ram is not enough these days. I want to try 16gb to see if it makes a difference. I'm about to order this, but wanted to ask here if there was a better/faster 16 kit I should get instead. This would be for my sig rig. Thanks.

Yeah thats laptop RAM, that wont be compatible with your desktop.

You are looking for 240 Pin DIMM's for your board.

Something like these:

oops, haha, I posted the wrong link in OP..

This is the ram I meant.

http://www.amazon.com/Kingston-Modules-1600MHz-KHX1600C10D3B1K2-16G/dp/B007TTEHMW/ref=sr_1_5?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1396935829&sr=1-5

A bit cheaper then the one you suggested, would this be fine? Anything better for the price? amazon only please if possible. Also, would it be compatible with my current ram?

I'm trying to run a very poorly coded game "Rust" and I need the best possible ram. I heard something about Quad Channel Memory, is that better then this ram? What is the best? Sorry for all the questions..

Oh yeah that will work fine. The only caveat is they will all operate at all of the slowest settings, so whichever has the loosest timings or lowest frequency is what they will run at.

I see your current ram is listed at 1866mhz, I thought you might want something that can perform in its place, difference even between what I linked is noticably minimal other than the price gap.

But yeah to answer your question, it will work, and it will work alongside your current memory as well for a nice hefty 20GB of system RAM.

You'll be able to turn your page file off and have memory to spare at that point.

Sorry for the double post, but I would get this RAM to match.

Is your current memory only 1 stick of ram or is it 2x2GB?

My current memory is two sticks of 2gb.

I did see that link you posted, but it's two weeks to ship =( I'd be willing to wait if it's really worth it.

Its the same stuff, same speed.

You wont gain or lose anything other than capacity.

If you want it sooner they have HyperX plug and play series for a few dollars more.

Would I be able to even use that with my current ram? My ram is 1.65V while that is 1.5V. Dose that matter?
post #9 of 22
Yeah, it can cause issues running ram that require different voltages for each stick. It's a bad idea to mix ram that have two different voltages.

You can run that ram anywhere from 1.5 to 1.65v without issue.

Having a slightly higher voltage is not going to cause any issues. if you are concerned about it, simply remove the 4GB's

in light of the upgrade to 16GB, 4GB wont be missed.
