Hi,

I'm planning to mount a single stage phase change setup to cool down my core i7 920.

I expect to reach frequencies of 4.5Ghz in a Gigabyte X58-Xtreme motherboard.

What would be the best 6gb memory kit for me?
Also, what would be the best value kit for those speeds?

Thank you very much

I was thinking about buying corsair, Kingston or OCZ

Their 3x2Gb memory kits retail at >300$.

Why so much price difference?

Am I missing something?

I know the latencies of those product might be slightly better, but c'mon!!

I was looking at corsair's online store >400$ for new 2000 Mhz dominators.

Does the increase in speed justify the extra price?


After spending lots of money for a good cooling setup, I really don't wanna be limited by memory


EDIT: This drives me crazy, what's the difference between those modules? aside from price?
