My System Specs


I downloaded the Sabertooth-Z77-Memory-QVL.pdf from Asus and for DDR3 1600 Qualified Vendors List the only Mushkins listed are 996805(XMP) 4GB (2 x 2GB) with timings of 6-8-6-24 @ 1.65v. I guess these blacklines recommendations come from personal experience which I'll get behind.

I'm guessing perhaps you guys are referring to
Mushkin Enhanced Blackline Frostbyte 16GB 4X4GB PC3-12800 DDR3-1600 9-9-9-24 Quad Channel Memory Kit ? o
Mushkin Enhanced Blackline Frostbyte 16GB 2X8GB PC3-12800 DDR3-1600 CL10 Dual Channel Memory Kit Either is ok for me I guess. I see the 8GB sticks are a tad bit more expensive but thats not a deal breaker. It would leave 2 slots open for a future upgrade.

And I'm in total agreement that these would look rather nice with the sabertooth armor as backdrop. Damn you guys aint kidding RAM these days is cheap. I paid double the price for only 4GB of DDR2 4 years back. Well not quite double 4GB I think cost $129 back then.
