Default RAM Recommendation for i7 - ASUS P6T X58 Deluxe Rig

Hi everyone.

I'm building a new rig and would be grateful for recommendations on what memory to pick up. I expect to be doing a bit of overclocking, but not a whole lot -- and not too aggressively as, frankly, at the moment I don't know what I'm doing... <g>

I'd like good quality, reliable RAM that gives me some flexibility on tweaking.

The mobo is an ASUS P6T X58 Deluxe.

Thanks in advance!

With everything I read about this board, especially in SLI, go with QVl one from ASUS . it's on the ASUS P6T X58 page on the Asus web page.

I dont think x58 boards support 1.8-1.9v RAM. Max is 1.65v, so dont get the

It says that in the title but then down in the specs it says Voltage: 1.5-1.6V... So I don't know which one is the correct number.. I'd assume the Mushkin employee knows lol

But yeah... stay max of 1.65v for i7 DIMMs.
