The timings are the lowest I found, @ 6-6-6-18.

These sound good to go?
great sticks but you need something with smaller heatsinks because of that cooler. Also you want to get your sticks in multiples of two since your board is dual channel. so its either 2x 2gb or 4x 2gb or 2/4 of 4gb etc you get the picture.

Get a stick with normal side heatsinks such as this. or something like this.

dont buy those sticks it was just to show you what heatsinks to look for

or your other option is to get those dominators but get a h50 or h70 since they give alot more case real estate and about the same temps as that noctua.

Ahh, I know what you mean. I saw a few screenshots showing the Noctua NH-D14 not interfering with RAM with raised heat spreaders. It cut it REALLY close but I'm pretty sure they fit. I hope the RAM not being listed as compatible is as easy as putting settings in yourself.

I also looked into the H70 as a cooler, but I read if you wanted to go water cooling, you should stay away from the prepackaged ones. I was so ready to buy the H70 though. Thanks again

The h70 isnt great I only got the h50 cuz it was 45 from a friend in like new condition. That being said the noctua does in fact support dominators its just super close so it could in theory affect your temps. I had a true-120 and some reapers so I used to be limited in my ram slots being used but for my board it didtn matter. That being said why get the larger heatsinks that might mess with another cooler you might get down the road? Unless you are overclocking your ram (you prob wont with that chip since its a multi change not bclock) the regular heatsinks work just fine. My ram has never gotten even warm to the touch and i have checked it numerous times.

Side note: mushkin has alot of good ram @ 1600mhz with lower timings but you pay a tad extra (small heatsinks). Mushkin is top of the line ram tho

Hey, I'm looking at this page here:
http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=350

It shows that the 2x2GB version of the ram I purchase is compatible with the P8P67 Pro, but when I saw the 2x4GB version, it wasn't compatible.

Is there really a difference in the two sets? I find it odd that one works with it, but the other does not.

Aw, I understand what you mean now.
Ya, I'm not quite sure if I like the new overclocking methods now, it seems too easy!
Gonna look at mushkins now, even though my order shipped!

if your order shipped dont worry about it. I dont know if there will be a difference between the 2x 4gb and 2x2gb. Should be fine. At the worst you rma and get a new set. gskill makes good ram. I only even suggested changing because you coulda saved some money but no worries
