My System Specs

Default

I would consider the new 30nm samsung ddr3-1600 ram (Newegg.ca - SAMSUNG 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model MV-3V4G3D/US).

They run 11-11-11-28 1,35v at 1600 stock, which is really loose timings, but they have been clocked beyond 2400 mhz with low volts on x79 platform (check techpowerup.com for a complete review).

I got mine (3 unmatched 4gb sticks for 87$ shipped) to run at 2133 10-10-10-27 1,5v on my i7 970 - x58a-ud3r platform, which is not nearly as good for ram clocking as sandy bridge or bulldozer. Lots of fun to overclock, and unbeatable performance for the price!
