making a new i5 3570k build computer.
Going for the cheapest 2 sticks of 2gb CL9 1.5v ram i can find, with overclocking being a preference if price warrants it (ie sticks of same price or little more for way more kind of thing).
Of any site or store, the Crucial Tactical Tracers at newegg are the cheapest ram to find anywhere:
Unfortunately, the single 2gb sticks (of which I'd buy 2) is out of stock, might have to buy their 2x2gb kit instead:
Being $2 cheaper than no-name valuram and $6 cheaper than the cheapest name brand ram.... looks like egg has them on a really good sale.
My question to all of you guys - is this decent ram? I mean as I understand it, ram doesnt mean anything really as long as you got enough, just get 1.5v cl9 ram and good to go.... but just curious if this was decent ram, like if it was high quality or what, or if maybe better ram to be had or anything. I dont really see what i could do with it. Like what expectation of overclocking could i have with this ram, what's the max 24/7 voltage (i mean ram is so cheap, i dont care if i blow out the ram btw...)...
Thanks. based on the responses ill be buying something asap.
ps - what's better, 1866mhz CL9 1.5v or 1600mhz CL8 1.5v. Isn't that exact same ram that the manufacturer just labels different, like its the same load and such? like isn't 1333mhz CL9 1.5v X series of ram the same thing and same ics and all as 1600mhz CL9 1.65v ram? like no one would be impressed if intel sold 'the new i5' as 4.4ghz 1.3v when its just the same as an sb/ib or whatever. bad analogy...
