Initially I was looking at the G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666), thinking that it would be best to run two modules. I will eventually install a better CPU cooler and was concerned that four DIMMs could interfere with a better cooling system (plus I think these would look friggin' awesome with the CH-IV ).

Then I was told about the Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800). I really like the lower latency and the higher speed, plus the slightly cheaper price, but I'd need to run four modules. Could this be a problem space-wise if I install a better CPU cooler? Would you prefer two modules @1333 (cas 9) or four modules @1600 (cas 7)?

Also, which CPU cooler would you recommend for $60 or less (going in a CM Storm Scout)?

This is my first build and I am learning so much, but there's still much to know. I'm at a point where I know just enough to be dangerous, but this forum has been a phenomenal source of info. I hope you don't mind my n00bish questions. I appreciate it! I'm really excited to get this build up and going!
If you absolutely want no issues with clearance later on just get a 4x2 GB kit.

You can just buy two of these.

My final overclock for this chip&mobo (100% Stable Prime&LINX)

Come on I know you can do 300 x 14 @ 1.55v with that system.

I know I can but my memory = 1600mhz and it's not underclocked atm that's why I used 13.5. I use Dominator GTX2 at this moment but I'll put some eco's later in.
post #3336 of 13132
Try 320 x 12.5 with 3200NB 2420HT and 1707mem and see how that is for you. All voltages on "auto" with LLC enabled. It's the best so far for me.

Ok, i'll try later if I get other ram this GTX2 is for my 980x & BTW how much volt do you use for your NB?
post #3338 of 13132
"auto" on all the voltages, but the NB uses ~1.51v set to "auto". LLC enabled. I even have C&Q enabled.

EDIT: when you said NB I assumed you meant CPU/NB...that is what uses 1.51v. The NB uses only 1.1-1.2v

***, 1.51v is a lot men I use 1.3v on NB & 1.35 on CPU/NB for 3ghz NB
post #3340 of 13132
I just leave it on "auto"....I figure it uses what it needs.

If I set CPU/NB to 1.45 my system freezes up if I run prime.

Perhaps if I increase the NB a little, I could decrease the CPU/NB a little.

Although according to ASUS tech support>overclocking department it doesn't matter that the # is red in your BIOS. I asked them about the CPU/NB specifically.
