12GB makes overclocking a bit harder - only needed if doing something that needs it.

12GB (3 x 4) may or may not run at top rated speed, but generally is fine once you find the right amount of QPI/Vtt (AFAIK)

well to be honest i only plan on going to 3.2ghz or so. do you think i will be fine in that range with it?
post #2173 of 3827
Any i7 should handle that, so it should be fine. Anything to 3.8 with four core is not usually a problem.

hey guys.

I need experts opinion. I want to upgrade my RAM to 12 GB, could you give me some recommendations ? I was thinking about Corsair Dominator GT or the G. Skill Ripjaws. I do not plan to do any extreme overclocking but i'm a gamer so I was wondering if I should get 1333, 1600, 1866 or even 2000 MHz.

I'd also like some SSD recommendations I was planning on getting two 128GB Crucial RealSSD C300 and put them in raid 0 but i've heard something about the Marvel chipset on the UD3R motherboard doesn't support TRIM for the SandForce chipset or something like that. So I was thinking about the OCZ Vertex 2 maybe.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

First off OCing 12GB of RAM is extremely hard, just get a 1600mhz 12gb kit and call it a day i doubt you can do any higher with the crappy IMCs in the bloomfields/gulftowns.

On the SSD the C300 is one of the best SSDs for RAID as it have very aggressive internal garbage collection. There is NO TRIM in RAID at all for any SSD. that being said the C300 is perfect for RAID because its performance wont degrade as quickly as sandforce drives that are 285/275 read/write compared to the C300 which is 350read/75 or 140 or 220 write depending on size of the drive.

There is 0 need for RAID as a gamer, its better to get a drive like a C300 and put it on the marvell controller. IF you have your littel heart set on RAID be advised that RAID with SATA6G (marvell for X58) is a no go, you have to buy a highpoint rocket RAID card with two marvell controllers, as even though a single controller on the board supports RAID it will fail. Only RAID for the SATA6G drives like the C300(well its the only SATA6G drive right now) will be ok on ICH10R(SATA3G) or P67 PCH chipset that has SATA6G internally and not on marvell.

Extra stress for the memory controller, whether on chip or on board, usually needs higher qpi, and even then may not be able to be run at full rated speed afaik.

Hey Guys 12GB isn't so hard or I should say doesn't necessarily overstress. If we want to talk degredation thats a whole other topic for discussion.

Again it comes down to Stability but the voltage increases need not be avoided altogether..

My rig (is utilising 6x2GB Trident 2000 @ 1800 8-8-8-20,1.. sure QPI is up at 1.61 but it needed 1.56 or the like to run 6gb at rated speed (2000)..

I'm stable (i7 960, 5970/GTS450) as they come at 4.4 ht on 1.47v, power saving (SS Vcore downclock to 1.16v x12 multi), VM and HPET all enabled. Temps are all satisfactory with currect WC setup also.

So I would deduce that too many variables come into play to discount before being explored.. I'm happy to provide advice as other are.. Have a great day.
