New build need Ram Suggestions
ASUS Sabertooth 990FX AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
AMD FX-8120 Zambezi 3.1GHz Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core Desktop Processor FD8120FRGUBOX
I have the above combo and I am wondering what the best memory set to get
I currently have G-skill Ripjaws 1333 7-7-7-21 which is supported by the new board~ 8 gigs in my current system
The memory support sheet from ASUS lists the following DDR3
And a couple at 2000
Should I just pull my memory from the old board or buy new? I do plan on overclocking in the 4 ghz range once it is up and running. I guess i do not want to bottelneck for something as cheap as RAM. So if anyone can suggest some mem sticks that work good let me know
Thanks in advance
i think you can loosen up the timings, and run it firstname.lastname@example.org, give that a try, if it doesnt work, any particular color preferences?
Cuz the hyperx t1's are nice and cheap, with a good quality heatsink as well (Newegg.ca - Kingston HyperX T1 Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 Desktop Memory Model KHX1866C9D3T1K2/4GX)
many of those 1333 sets were rejected 2133 bin
you might want to try clocking then to around 2000mhz 1.65-1.7v
Thats too far of a stretch, start loosening the timings (9-9-9-24) for start, then go up 1600,1866 etc, but after 1600mhz you dont notice any huge performance gains
not too far of a stretch lol
some doing 2200mhz on that ram:whistle:
really? i was trying it clock a pair of ripjaws for my friend and got nothing except some tighter timings, and his was 1600mhz stock speed :doh:
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!
give these a whirl i have them and they are so fast its like having an ssd(but not the same :),
Mushkin Enhanced Redline 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 CL7 $69.49 + free shipping
I'm running the same set as Feanor, on my 2700k.
at 10-10-10-28-1T and 2133.
It really is unbeatable performance at that price.
get a ram within 1600 or 1800 ! =D
