Question Memory for i7 930/ASUS P6X58D Premium

Well, I think I'm just about ready to buy the MB and memory. Picked up an i7 930 couple weeks ago.

Thank you all for all the info that you've provided me in my previous thread on MB's. I think I'm going to choose...

ASUS P6X58D Premium LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Looking through the MB's manual to find compatible memory, I've located several that from what I understand from the table I shouldn't have any problems achieving a speed of 1600. I'd like to see if I can OC this thing to 4GHz at some point. Anyone have any thoughts?

CORSAIR TR3X6G1600C8D 6GB(3x2GB) 8-8-8-24(1600-8-8-8-24) 1.65v
G.SKILL F3-12800CL9T-6GBNQ 6GB(3x2GB) 9-9-9-24(1601-9-9-9-24) 1.5-1.6v
Patriot PVT36G1600ELK 6GB(3x2GB) 9-9-9-24(1600-7-7-7-20) 1.65v


CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) TR3X6G1600C8D - $210 After rebate

G.SKILL 6GB (3 x 2GB) F3-12800CL9T-6GBNQ - $$165

Patriot Viper 6GB (3 x 2GB) PVT36G1600ELK - $170 After rebate

I was looking at picking up the same cpu/mobo combo. My first choice would be G.Skill Ripjaws. They are $5 dollars more with slightly better timings and better heatsinks.

Thanks for the response! But can't seem to find that one in the table of compatible memory. Only the following 6gb(3x2gb) G.SKILL are listed:

G.SKILL F3-1200CL8T-6GBHK(XMP) 8-8-8-21(1333-8-8-8-21)
G.SKILL F3-1200CL8T-6GBPI(XMP) 8-8-8-21(1066-8-8-8-20)
G.SKILL F3-1200CL9T-6GBNQ 9-9-9-24(1601-9-9-9-24)

I'll be back later. Gotta rush out to din-din

I'm not familiar with the G Skill, but I have the Patriot and am very happy and they are cheaper than most people's favorite--Dominator. I would stick to manufacturor's memory recommendations.
Congradulations, I envy you that board. Please let us know how you like it and don't hesitate to ask for help should you need it.

Gskill makes great ram. No worry about that.

Look into some lower latency. Something around L7

Gskill Pi. This stuff is amazing.

I was looking over the large selection of CORSAIR on newegg for almost the exact same build, and saw these:

CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (blue) CMX6GX3M3C1600C7
7-8-7-20 1.65V
$199.99 (free shipping)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145286

They list better timings than the DOMINATOR black ones (which are $209.99 after rebates and all that). No other specs or information on why the better timing sticks are cheaper. But if you consider CORSAIR, maybe look at those 7-8-7-20 set instead of the 8-8-8-24 dominators?

Whats even more confusing, is they also have these:

CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (blue) TR3X6G1600C8 G
8-8-8-24 1.65V (same as DOMINATOR)
$199.99 (after rebates + free shipping)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145236

So, do you pay for the DOMINATOR name? Hehe... or the "black" heat sinks on them?

Anyhow, just wanted to throw that in, if you were still considering the CORSAIRs. I am not married to any ram mfg right now because I've had G.Skill and hated them. Have had OCZ and never a problem. Have had Corsair, and seemed fine, but higher priced overall.

I have the Dominator version of these in my rig (see sig), have had no issues with them and they perform well... haven't done much with them yet as far as overclocking, I am currently running: XMP CAS8 8-8-8-24-1T @ ~1600MHz v1.65... am hoping they will take some tighter timings but haven't tried yet.

(not to derail this thread... but)

I'm just curious what the difference is. Is it just the black heatsink vs the blue? I know sometimes a heatsink can make or break a component... so those dominator black heat sinks must be some pretty good quality then for the price difference?

Anyhow, back on topic...

Just a hunch, but maybe the reason the G.Skill "PI" and "Ripjaw" are not listed as compatible, is because those are higher performance chip sets, newer than the compatibility chart for your MB? Out of date printed material is always a hassle in this market

I'd like to think the beefy heatsinks help when overclocking... personally for me, I've had good OC's with them over the years with my various AMD rigs and they look awesome . The looks don't justify the extra cost tho

Quite possible, am not sure how often ASUS update those charts, I don't think my memory is on the compatibility chart for the Rampage II Extreme but they work. Check the BIOS revisions and release notes, they used to link to newly supported products.

Note the 1T is kind of important especially if you are considering some G.Skill. All the G.Skill ones seem to say their timings are "2N" (or 2T for the rest of the world). 2T isn't as good as 1T.

Side note: I was actually considering those Redline 998805 you linked above. They sure look sweet, and also don't have MASSIVE TALL heat sinks on them (which is a problem with aftermarket quality CPU HSFs).

If the OP wants to save some bucks with Mushkin, the Blacklines are really decent and still better than the G.Skill (of course still expensive):

I have the board you're looking to buy and the ram listed in Vistageek92s post. I love my GSkill and I'm sure you won't be disappointed if that's your choice.

I am using G.Skill with a P6T and I have to say that it is great, and it works marvelously. So I would say G.Skill.
