Need help deciding.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
To anyone with experience or information about either module, which would you recommend for my setup (want to OC):

Mushkin Ridgeback 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz 6-8-6-24 (996826)

-OR-

G.SKILL ECO Series 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz 7-8-7-24 (F3-12800CL7D-4GBECO)

-FOR-

1090T/CH4F/Thermalright Silver Arrow

Chose between these two because of their clearance (TSA ruins my options) and stock timings. Both I've read are compatible with my board.

I'm open to better recommendations.

Feedback would be much appreciated.

If you can afford them, Mushkin.

Both are great, your choice

The ECOs are usually cheaper and do the same 6-8-6 timings with every kit - and they are low profile if that is what worries you

Managed to pick up two sets of the ECOs for $90CAD.

Beat the hell out of the Ridgebacks that were going for $69CAD each.

Thanks for the input, xd, it made my decision a lot easier... the price just made the dealer sweeter. Haha.

$90 for 8GB of ECOs? That's a sweeeeettt deal, where'd you get it? Craigslist or similar?
I paid $200 for mine but that was when all DDR3 was still fairly expensive
