    Question Recommended RAM for Asrock z77 x4 with i5-3570k

    Hi,


    Finally I spent my hard earned cash to buy a new mobo and ram,hdd and PSU, for my 1yr old GPU.


    Current specs:
    PSU: Corsair TX650
    HDD: 1TB Hitachi Deskstar
    Mobo: Asrock z77 extreme 4
    CPU: i5-3570k
    GPU: Sapphire Radeon 6570 2G


    Now,all I need is RAM. Could you give me a not suggestion but a recommendation on w/c RAM to buy (NOTE: As much as possible kindly include the SKU/Part/Model# so I can check if it's listed here: ASRock > Z77 Extreme4)


    The store near me has G.SKills only
    F3-10666CL9S-8GBXL
    F3-12800CL10D-16GBXL
    F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
    F3-10666CL9S-4GBXL
    f3-12800CL9D-4GBXL


    I did some research on the net but reviews on a specific SKU provides limited and some of that SKU has a bad review when comparing it to it's competitor RAM.


    Btw, my friend recommends that since I'm using an Ivy Bridge CPU it's best to buy any RAM as long as the specs are: CL9, 1.5V, 1600 Mhz since that's the compatible RAM setting for an Ivy Bridge. Is that true? If it's, then what's the best RAM that has this spec?


    I'm planning to OC the rig. Thanks for the reply

    The closest G.SKILL part in the memory support list to the ones you listed is the F3-12800CL9Q-16GBXL. It might work but no guarantee.

    NO chance you can buy any RAM that is CL9, 1.5V, 1600, and it will work. That is the way it was say... four+ generations of Intel CPUs ago, back in the DDR2 days, when I could use RAM made by two manufactures in the same board, no problem. Not any more. We see posts in this forum all the time about this or that memory not working, even if the RAM manufactures states it will work in, say, Ivy Bridge systems. If the memory is not in the list, no guarantee it will work. If it's in the list, I've never found the memory to not work. I always use something from the memory support list, which I usually must order. Perhaps AMD systems are more flexible with memory, but not Intel.

    But then myself and others discovered this memory: Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model MV-3V4G3/US

    Just throw it in a PC and it works. I use mine at 1866 and 2000, and others at 2133+. I like it because I can run it at 1866 on 1.35V. Not fancy looking at all, no XMP profile programmed into it, stock speed and timings look fair at best, but the specs make Intel specs seem liberal and extreme. Check the feedback on that newegg page for that RAM. Others in this forum use it too, a hidden gem. They don't even match the DIMMs, mine are from several 2 x 4GB sets. If you can find it or order it, this is what is closest to the "best" memory, whatever that is.

    With your board and cpu (which I have the same):
    1.5v
    2 dims of ram

    With G.Skill ram it seems you need the 3770K for the highest rated speeds to be compatible, but 2133 < is ok. I run these Mushkin with XMP profile: Newegg.com - Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 8GB &#40;2 x 4GB&#41; 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 &#40;PC3 17000&#41; Desktop Memory Model 997015

    What i have on my list is F3-12800CL10D-16GBXL, but I'll try to negotiate if they order basis this F3-12800CL9Q-16GBXL.

    My friends also recommends F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL, what's your input on this?

    Yeah, I'm seeing and getting a lot of recommendation about that RAM.

    Would it be ok if slot it in along with other RAMs? Example, I'm gonna buy F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL (since they have this on-stock) and slot it on the dual channels, then slot 2 of these to the single channels slots?
