This specific mobo i don't know, but ASRock is an ASUS brand, generally cheaper, so I wouldn't expect much of a difference, except maybe quality of tha parts used..

Yet this was some time ago. Lately I hear good good things about ASRock

Looks good. I'd want to try out Asrock too, I've heard a lot of good things about their recent AM3 870/890GX/FX extreme boards so the intel ones should be the same. If you're on a budget, either that or the Asus P8P67 vanilla board will be enough.

Looks pretty good.
This review shows that it is very comparable to the P8P67: http://www.anandtech.com/show/4080/w...p67-extreme4/6

Interestingly enough, both Asus boards beat the Gigabyte board. The only real cons for the Asrock are: 1 year warranty, less power phases, and the lack of the dual "intelligent processors"

I am thinking seriously about getting the Asus p8p67 Pro myself , but am lost on what kind of RAM would be good for me. I am going to overclock of course and was looking at some Corsair and GeIl Rams. Not sure if I should go for the 1600 Mhz , or 2000 Mhz , if any one could shed some light on which ones to go for , and timing etc...

thank you

Thanks a lot for those recommendations , however I was wondering if I should just go for the 1600 's or higher ? Or will I just be needing the 1600's cause we'll be overclocking those anyways ? Or is 2000 RAM better to start off with , if planning to use longer in the future ?

Also Timing is still bit of a quiz for me , Are CL7's the preferable choice over CL9's in general ? They seems to be cheaper at the same speeds.

In G-skill's 2000 Ghz range , you seem to pay about a hundred bucks more for the faster timing at 2gbx2 price range

Go with the newer Gskill ripjaws 1600mhz cas 9.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2800CL9D-8GBXL Lower timings are better of course. They are out of stock right now on newegg. 1600mhz is what is meant for the sandybridge. If you are overclocking lower ram speed and lower latency ram is better than superclocked ram. (2000mhz+) I personally just set the timing lower right off the bat and use memtest for testing. Example I bought corsair 8-9-8-24 2000mhz running 7-7-7-20 1600mhz. Now you might want to start out with those Gskill ripjaws at 8-9-8-24 and see how lower you can go without any errors. I have ran mshkin, Gskill, kingston and corsair. I found that corsair is super stable and timings/speed changed are easily achieved.

May I ask you , why did you buy the faster RAM , and then run them slower?
And I am looking into some other RAM , and I found some I want to ask your opinion about. Not that I am not considering your recommendations ,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-466-_-Product

Here they are selling 3x 2GB for a similar price, wouldn't I wanna have 6gb , instead of 4 , if the price is right ? Or do I need to pair the RAM on the motherboard , always have Dual RAM and not Dual 2gb x2 , and an additional third 2gb and leave one slot open ? I know they sell these triple set RAMS for the x58 chipset boards , but still I was considering those aswell.

Thank you
