I would say the following RAM kits are the "best" for Socket 1156:
- Corsair Dominator:
Very popular, due to quality and price, what I mean by price is that it's quite expensive ($150+). However the quality is excellent, along with their timings.
- Mushkin Enhanced Blackline/Redline:
Excellent quality, I would rate Mushkin as a "underdog" company, not a lot of people heard of Mushkin. Blackline are their most popular line of RAM, good timings and quality too, worth their "small premium" over others.
Their Redline however are their flagship product, due to their quality and timings, which are very low, lower than some Corsairs Dominators. Although their prices for the Redline series are about the same for Corsair Dominators.
- G.SKILL Trident:
Perhaps the best "bang for the buck" RAM kit out there, good quality and popular among computer hobbyists, good timings too, these can be found for about ~$110 USD.
- OCZ Platinum:
Yet, another best "bang for the buck" good quality, very popular and good timings, can't go wrong with OCZ RAM.
Those RAM kits is what I would have used in my own system, and recommend them to others too. Yes, I know there are more RAM kits out there but this is my personal preferences.
