if u r looking for the ultimate then that is perfect 6-9-6-24
1.65 V works perfectly with sandybridge

but preferbly u can go for a 1.5 V kit ..
always less voltage is less heat

G Skill has few them @ 1.5V and 2000 mhz at ultra low timming - (2 x 2 GB kits) so u might need 2 of them .

but 16 GB is waste for mutli media and gamming purpose
Hey I already bought 32GB for my future socket 2011 build . To the OP I would look for Sandybridge models due to the memory voltage. You want modules with the 1.5 voltage. 16gb will be a lot of stress on the imc as it is, you will be more likely to burn out the imc with 1.65 modules than 1.5 modules since SB CPUs are designed for 1.5V

is 1.65v that much of a weight on the IMC? Goddamn new voltage standards....

@ Relevant Wing. I doubt that 1.65v is a problem, gskill specifically designed this kit for Sandy bridge CPUs and it runs @ 1.65v

Well, if you want overkill, you obviously need to go with the 16GB option. Not sure why you're even asking in that case.

Now the thing is, I could either go with two kits of this

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...-322-_-Product

which I can run also at 2000mhz 6-9-6-24-1T Timings for a total of 8GB (2x 2x2GB) or two kits of 2x4GB of any ram kit on newegg.ca
such as this one http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16820233147

So, which one would be the best in your opinion and why?

Also, even though the G.Skill was designed for i7 860-870, will it be able to run at the same timings with a sandy bridge? And will I be able to have 2x 2x2GB at the speed they were designed for even though it says on their website that its possible that only two dimms can run those are that speed?

Thanks a lot guys =D!
2x2x2 is my choice, my gskill 4gbxh is on the way, I should can have it running 2133mhz/7-10-7-24 on my p67

Yeah the 8gb will run faster, no need for 16gb unless you know you need it. More memory = more stress on the IMC which is usually what limits your memory speed anyway.

Yeah. Decided to go with 2x2x2 of that 2200 Mhz memory running at 9-9-9-27.
Ill be able to get it down at least to 6-8-6-24-1 @ 2Ghz
