You don't need triple channel memory.

but anyways, that ram is a little loose tbh. Try to find one with better timings.

It's a toss up between the Mushkin Enhanced and the G.Skill Ripjaws.

The ripjaws do run at a lower voltage than the Mushkin so keep that in mind.

It depends on your board, I'm unsure of what the normal voltage range of that board is.

Currently what is your RAM VTT set to?

my vote goes to mushkin - heard lots of good stuff about them but have yet to try anything made by them.

What mobo you have will dictate what voltages you need. You'll only know 100% what the voltage is by testing it with a volt meter. No software or BIOS setting is ever exactly correct. I set my RAM at 1.67 to reach the desired 1.65 operating voltage. It all depends on the RAM's requirements and the capabilities of your mobo. Usually 1.65 is pushing it though.

Go for the Mushkin, if at all try to find these.

Mushkin Enhanced Black - 996601

Stay away from 996625 - they have issues with that board.

I think the 996657 will do 6-6-6-18 @ 1333MHz

Main difference between AMD and Intel when it comes to memory is that with Intel, high frequency matters upto 9-9-9-30, with AMD keeping moderate frequencies and tight timings 7-7-7-20 gives better performance

Get these ripjaws, @ $80, they'll be great
