DDR3 1600 Hard Decision! Please help

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I'm going to buy a new ram for my new rig. But dunno which one i should buy. There are tons of rams :'(

Ive found a kingston hyperx Blu
KHX1600C9D3B1K2/4G with a positive review :
http://www.bjorn3d.com/read.php?cID=1909&pageID=9434
score: 9/10 and it powns the
G.SKILL PIS DDR3 2000MHz 4GB Kit and Patriot Sector 5 2000MHz 4GB Kit

and also ive found another ram from kingston hyperx:
the KHX1600C9D3B1K2/4GX version. here is a review:
http://www.overclockersclub.com/revi...ddr31600/4.htm

the 4G and 4GX are both very good rams(i think), they're about the same price ~€50

the 4GX has Intel XMP and the 4G not , i dont know what that exactly is, something with OC'ing.

but the 4G has 1.9V - 1.7V - 1.5V
and the 4GX has 1.65V - 1.5V

Both are 1600MHZ 2 sticks and same timings 9-9-9-27

Does anyone know which one is better or recommended? Hard decision mehh!

Need help

Btw its for a Core i5 760 and a Asus P7P55D-E Motherboard

in my opinion i think the only difference is the 4 gx is the enthusiast version which most of us in ocn are lol which means its meant to be pushed more and can take the beating. xmp is like an auto ram oc tool that intel made that auto matches your timings with your oc on your cpu. never used it always clocked my ram manually. so if your gonna oc and they are the same price just go for the x version. hope this helps

Take a look at Gskill ECHO or Ripjaws much better RAM
