Several memory questions!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My last intel build was a celeron 300a slot A. I need to get some ram for my sandy bridge system. I have a few questions and appreciate in advance your answers:

Should i get a faster timing 4gb set or a slower timing 8gb set? I mostly play games, no crazy applications. both are about the same price thats why im comparing these two.

Will g-skill ripsaw fit under a corsair a70 in a push/pull config on this board?

how critical are timings on intel systems? big difference between 7 cas and 9 cas?

thanks for the help!

Hey, I am just checking in to see if you have built your setup already with a few questions:
I already have a Corsair A70 and am looking at this set of memory.

Is this the G.Skill memory one you got (either the blue, red, or black one)?
Did it fit under the A70 mounted horizontal?
And what slots did you put the memory in?

Thanks in advance, looking forward to your response.

i got this memory. It does fit under the a70 mounted horizontal, but just barely, and i actually think that maybe the a70 is ever so slightly touching the memory, but this isnt a problem because the a70 has little to no vibration. my memory is in slots 1 and 3.

Man, I really appreciate your quick response. Though I am getting a different motherboard than the one you have (P8P67 Pro is what I am looking at), I was still very skeptical about the Ripjaws X series fitting under the A70. I was scared I'd have to buy another cooler like an H50 or maybe just go with a low-profile set of memory.

Again, thank you so much.
