is this ram good for i7 3770 k
 
is kingston 1333mhz good for i7 3770k i have asus sabertooth z 77 and i want to overclock cpu without Instability or should
i go for g.skill rejpaws x or g.skill sniper . i have avery good cooling system so no worry about cooling (corsair H100 cooler)

I really like the G.skill sniper since it operates at very low voltage, therefore being "greener".

And no, 1333MHz is not good, get 1600MHz if you can afford it, any will do really...

I totally like my mushkin ram so I would suggest you going with mushkin instead of kingston, even though I used to run some G.skill sticks and they never gave up on me, still have them.

personnally i would get 2000mhz-2400mhz stuff

or get the samsung low profile stuff n overclock the to 2400mhz:thumb:

Depends if it's for processing or gaming.

For processing higher clocked RAM will help, though there is no video game that is optimized for using more than 1600MHz out of the sticks.

Kingston has never done wrong by me. Also considering that when motherboard makers test their boards they use Kingston as well, I think I will follow what they do. I would however make sure that your ram that you decide on has XMP in it for easier overclocking. I do agree with going 1600MHz though.

I wonder which would be better between kingston and samsung one. I only heard good comments about these.

DDR3-1600 is better suited for that Ivy Bridge CPU that you have there for it's higher bandwidth, and is the official memory speed rated for it. However, if you have the Kingston memory on hand, it will most likely suffice. Generally any name-brand RAM will be reliable, and offer a decent warranty. If you are completely unsure, check out the Asus website for your board and look at the QVL list for memory.

Kingston HyperX 1600 CL10 detected and runs as 1333 CL9 on 3770 and P8Z77-PRO. When I set it to run as 1600, PC can't boot, needed to press memOK button. I guess it goes by SPD (1333 CL9 is in SPD), but not XMP.
