post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I have this memory here below....

CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TR3X6G1600C9
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...es)-_-20145222

and i want to replace it with this....

G.SKILL F3-17600CL7D-4GBPIS PC3-17600
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...IS%20PC3-17600

I have a Phenom II 955 OC to 3.9GHZ on a MSI 790FX-GD70, is it worth it getting that memory?

Not with a Noctua NH-D14 sitting their. There is really no point to go higher the 1600 - 1800 on a 955. Unless you are trying for to git good speed with great timing.

Well your board supports dual-channel memory and your current memory is tri-channel. Seeing as how the G.Skill Pi are dual-channel, they would be more appropriate for your setup.
At long last...

At $150 for 2x2GB not at all. Aside from 7-10-10 being ripoff timings, your 955 will probably not get there anyway.
Just spend on a cheap set of 2x2GB (or 2 sets for 4x2GB); a good choice would be G.Skill Ripjaws 7-8-7 on NCIX for $63.55 after price match.

I found a buyer for my ram and will use the money to buy a new set but i feel bad going from 6GB to 4GB.... how about 8GB ? Which one of these would be a good choice?

I think i'll go with these....

G.SKILL F3-12800CL7D-8GBRH Ripjaws PC3-12800 8GB 2X4GB DDR3-1600 CL7-8-7-24 1.6V Memory Kit

After selling my memory i'll just need to add 60$ to buy them and i'm starting to use CS5 and 3D softwares like Maya and 3DS 2011 a lot so 8GB will be better then 6GB for me.

Am i right here?
