Smile Ram

Here's what I would do. Call different memory manufacturers and ask their opinions. Look through their product hype and it should help. Like I said in other responses, one of them told me that the 1366 environment seem to like 1866 Mhz mem. I like Mushkin, but any lifetime warranty ram is the way I'd go. Good luck, and enjoy the new build!!!

Most ram should work like a charm. I would look at G.skill trident or PI, mushkin red line or Dominator GT. These ram are all awesome and have work great for a long time with many board. Asus also use dom GT for display ram ( she work great and she is red )

Thumbs up Ram

+1 for Mushkin Redline. Their Blackline is pretty good as well. Be careful buying the redline 2000 mhz. A particular model, which one escapes me at the moment, is so wide because of the heat sinks that only one set can be used.

You're referring to the Mushkin Accent Red kits. +1 for Dominator GT's, they're amazing.
