Ram for 2500K.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey.

Ok, so I got SB a while back and all good.

I run with current setup (see signature/profile).

Problem persists in:

A week ago I posted a thread about what was wrong with my comp.. it was freezing and random BSODs.. Really random I tested various things, nothing worked.

I then turned bios back to default - Now it's totally fine. No BSODs / Freezes for a week (Having it turned on 24 hours at a time, then shutting down, turned on used etc like daily ..) so I based it on that it was the overclock.

Now.

Before, when I was overclocking, I couldn't get the 2500K pass 4.5GHz, I don't know why. Whatever volt I gave it, it didn't want to.

And with the memory I bought (http://www.memoryc.com/computermemor...esdualkit.html <-- Notice 1600MHz CL7 1.35V)
I can only get them to run 1333mhz CL9 stable (What they are now, with no overclock) everything else end up in a freeze or bsod some time. Even 1600 mhz CL9.


So maybe it's the memory thats the downer here, messing it all up.

I want to have my CPU overclocked.


Now. I use a Noctua D-14 as cooler, so the memory must not have too high coolers, guess I can see on the website if they fit or not.


Basicly:

I want to some good ram ( I usually use the PC for overclocking, gaming, HTML/CSS/PHP and a bit of C++, normal surfing ) I want to be able to run good timings/speed that will boost my performance and actually let me overclock and have a stable comp.


I will order from memoryc.com.

Budget: About $220

Yes. I have those exact ones just in the 2x2gb version and they fit under a NHD14 just fine.

Ok nice.


You think it will give a boost and actually be better for overclocking and stuff?

I have the 1600 MHZ ones. To be honest I would just get a decent 1600kit and OC from there if you want too. If you're really on a budget 1333 wont be very noticeable either.

Well thing is, the ones I have now is stock: 1600 mhz CL7 1.35V.. but they wont run that, even with 1.5v or more. So I want to be sure to be able to run atleast that, why I want 2000 mhz ones.

Here are the exact ones I'm running http://www.memoryc.com/computermemor...it.html...They run at 1.6v

You can go with these also http://www.memoryc.com/products/desc...kit/index.html

If you really want to push your RAM I would get the second ones I linked. They run at 1.5v which will give you some room to bump the voltage during overclock.

I guess the point I'm trying to make is this. The difference between 1333-1600-etc is going to not even be noticeable by you. It is noticeable during testing, benchmarking etc. But the money spent to get that extra Mhz that can be obtained through overclocking would be better spent elsewhere. I would get the cheaper kit and looking into getting an SDD.

Also, as far as overclocking your CPU many people have well over 4.5Ghz using 1600 Ram.

For ram I got these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-435-_-Product . I'm running a i5 2500k on a ga-p67a-ud5. I haven't clocked it up to its 2133 yet though.
