Any DDR3 ram would be fine. If you want to get that Noctua cooler you will want to get some low profile ram...anything that doesn't have big heatspreaders on it to avoid fitting conflicts. Something like these Newegg.ca - CORSAIR 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 Desktop Memory Model CMV8GX3M2A1333C9


edit---you could combine all these posts into one big one in the New Build forum and get all your answers in one place at the same time.

Newegg.ca - CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model CML8GX3M2A1600C9

Got the 4x4gb kit but decent ram, LP for clearance and 1.5v for sandy.

Pretty much same kit as Perry listed but with spreaders.

Gaming? Cheapest kit you can find with heat-spreaders.
