id skip the ripjawx and get any 8gb ram with adequate timings. 1333mhz would even do fine in this situation. with SB, there isnt that much of a difference between ram.
but, prices with ram is odd, and you might not even be saving that much money if you switch it.

I'll have to check to see what i can save with switching the ram.
I switched the board due to hearing good things about the Asrock being the best price/performance....and hearing issues with p8p67's. I also started a thread recently here and seemed to get recommended it as well
Thanks for pointing that out about the silver arrow that is a deal!....only concerns i have with it is hearing about clearance issues with ram. Although the noctua's size is large as well. And i have read of better performance with the silver arrow. So i'm completely open to switching that.
I'm completely open to any ideas you have about my whole build. I'm going to be pulling the trigger on everything as soon as the new boards wind up on newegg.
And I want to make sure i'm doing the right thing seeing the board needs to last for a few years with the only likely upgrades going to be an SSD and an ivy bridge socket 1155 processor.
EDIT: is that SA compatible with 1155? It doesnt list the socket on the directron siteEdited by skeletor6 - 3/5/11 at 12:54pm
