Sell 6GB Corsair Dominator for 12GB G.Skill?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Should I sell my current 6GB Corsair Dominator CL8 kit for
two kits of G.SKILL 6GB (3 x 2GB) CL9 for $130?
Would there be any noticeable difference between the Dominator and Gskills?

The heatspreaders on my dominators would hit my heatsink if I were to put one of them in the ram slot closest to the cpu, does anyone know if the G.Skills will fit below a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Heatsink?

Going with more of a slower memory = not good. Most users don't use more than 6GB memory, 12 would be useless. The more memory, the harder the memory controller has to work if you want to overclock, plus there is a reason you pay more for the Dominator, it overclocks better, and has a better latency. Dont switch, but thats just my 2 cents

not sure about your heatsink, but the dominators are stupidly tall. which is why i dont like em. i bought one of the kits that your referring to, and im going to put em in use on friday, they ll be fine as i had them before the slower timing doesnt worry me too much.

Those G-Skills have low profile heat-spreaders so they fit under any heatsink.

As said the low-profile heat spreaders won't be an issue, but will you actually NEED 12GB of RAM (what are you using this system for)?

Right now I'm mainly using it for gaming. In the future, I might use it for some VMware.
