RAM for i7 875k?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
What ram should I get for an i7 875k?

I'm looking for ram with low profile, no fancy tall spreaders. Will be doing mild overclock on the CPU, that's about it. I was thinking these Eco's, they got good ratings, only 5$ more than the ripjaws And they're lowprofile. Thanks!

Why would you get an 875k for a mild overclock?

My sig RAM is awesome, though. Should fit your needs perfectly.

The ECO you linked should be just fine for you as well.

I'd wager to say that he want's an i7 and since he lives in CA, the 875k costs the same as an 860 at microcenter.

As for the ram, I think the eco's are hit or miss. I had some and returned them. Right now i'm using them with an 875k, but it's in a friends rig and I'm not too fond of them due to my previous experience. I did, however, buy them based on all the great clocks I saw out of them over on XS.

I'm very satisfied with my ram in my sig rig.
Right now they're running at 1924mhz at 9-9-9-24-1t and 1.62v ROCK stable. I'm sure they could do 2000mhz+. Haven't tried though

Thanks for all the recs + reps, checking them out now.

Also - Yes, the 875k I got on a sweet deal. Sweeter than the microcenter deal ;]

The tight timings look real good and so far, all reviews are positive.
