What mem to get

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So now im either thinking on getting the Dominator 4gb kit:

Or the Patriot Viper 4gb kit:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820220315


Both have ame timings and voltages, but i've read that some people are having alot better luck OCing woth the vipers over the Dominator sticks.

BUT i've noticed alot of people on these forums reccomend or use (from looking at their systems) Mushkin, so i thought about this kit:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820146785


Any ideas/opinions on these kits? Know of any better kits?

I've got a m3a79t dlx with a 9850/9950 (waiting to hear back from amd if they are replacing my dead 9850 )

Your links are dead ...

Personally, I would go with the Muskins...
Dominators have gotten so popular that the company has started lowering their quality (at least that's what I've come to believe from ram OCs with the latest batches)...As for the patriot vipers, I have nothing against them - it's just that Mushkin is a much more trusted OCing brand

What would be better, getting a 800mhz kit with 5-4-4-12 timings or a 1066 kit with 5-5-5-15 timings?

EDIT:: also, would getting 8gb (4x 2gb) run in 1066 or would i be stuck in 800? Is it bad with the phenoms to run with all four slots filled? Do i need 8gb (i do alot of gaming and will soon be making videos when my daughter is born)?

CAS is the most important timing so (all things being equal more or less) the speed of the 1066 would be best
