Need Help Choosing RAM

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I need some help purchasing some memory. Believe it or not, I've purchased everything for my build except the memory. I think I've settled on the HyperX FURY CL14 16GB kit at 2133MHz for the looks and the price but the low speeds might bother me. Ideally I'd love to hit at least 3200MHz since my motherboard will support up to 4000MHz, but I'm not sure this kit would reach that high. Apparently FURY only goes as high as 2666MHz for purchase. Rig will be primarily for 4k gaming, but will also be running GNS3 for routing emulation.

Hardware is as follows:

ASUS Maximus IX Hero
i7 7700k
GTX 1080Ti SLI
Samsung 1TB 960 EVO NVMe

I've also cosiderd the G.SKILL TridentZ 3200Mhz kit, but it's not low profile and I'm not sure if the black/silver kit or the RGB kit would look good with my black and silver color scheme on the ASUS Maximus IX Hero. The silver appears much lighter than the silver on the motherboard. Picky small stuff, I know, but that's me.

Thanks for any help guys.

The heat spreaders on the G.Skill Trident Z is not as tall as other G.Skill kits. I have a couple of 128GB kits and couldn't be happier. Well, until they release the 128gb in RGB.

That said, the 3200 kit is as stable of a memory kit as I have experienced. My 5960Xs and 6950X all play very well with it.
