My System Specs

Default RAM suggestion

Hello!

It seems my ram is now dead! I will have to test each stick to find the bad one, but during that time, I'm looking for a new kit.

They will be matched with my Sabertooth X79 + 3930K (oc'ed to 4.6)

I'm looking for a quad-channel kit (probably 16GB...no real use for 32GB). I will not overclock the RAM, and do not need insane speed.

Anyone has this motherboard and chip and can recommand a good kit for the money ?

Thanks!

I would suggest one of the following:

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-16GXM

Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model 997069

CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 Desktop Memory Model CMZ16GX3M2A1600C9

then use Shopbot - Compare prices - Canada - Price Comparison - Comparison Shopping to find the best deal on one of them.

I just got a reply back from Muskin. I will see how it goes.

After testing, it is only 1 stick.

I might just wait for the RMA. I guess I can send only the faulty stick ?

EDIT : They want me to send the whole kit. I will buy one during that time!
