Which 4gb ram memories work best with GA-EX58-UD4P?
« on: June 16, 2011, 12:38:14 pm »
Hi guys, I wanna upgrade my build to 24GB, but I need to know the best memory for this MB. I use a I7 920 OC 3.300hz

Wanna a 2x3x4GB 1600mhz that cost less than 300 dollars. Which ones do you recommend?

Thanks.

 I'm on 24Gb (6X4) Mushkin on a GA-X58A-UD3R... seem to work OK!........You could Goggle your board with "24Gb Memory" on the end and just do the reading of peoples experiences with this setup noting brands along the way!

The Corsair Vengeance is also very nice memory, I used it on my review board a P67 , it is just a little lower specced than the Dominators. Do they do it as a triple channel kit ?

Yes, there is.

Is this one so inferior compared to dominator 3x4gb kit? Vengeance have no fan and uses only 1.5v same clock and same timmings. Or am I wrong about it?

No it is just not quite of the same quality chips that is all. The Dominators are specially picked for inclusion because of their ability to stand up more than the norm.

The vengeance is a good module just not quite to the same standard as the Dominator and if you wanted to go up the ladder a bit further there are the hand picked chips used for the Dominator GTs. It only really matters if you are planning to do some heavy overclocking.

Hum, I have no interest in overclock it, gonna use it at 1600mhz. Buying 24gb Vengeance kit will be 100 dollars cheaper.

For running at 1600 mhz the Vengeance will be perfect. I am running 8 GB of it at the moment and  have even overclocked the CPU up to 4.6Ghz with it working happily.
