    Default core I7 advise

    Hello, been waiting, and the core i7 is out today. I am considering the 940 cpu and the gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 for my future build. Will install vista home premium 64 bit, memory 3x2gb. Not sure what memory to use, don't need the fastest, just stable, reliable ddr3. Don't know if mushkin has a kit yet.
    Lsd what memory would you suggest for this build? Do you think this new architecture (x58) will require tweaking to get a stable 6 gb ram working initially?

    Default Re: core I7 advise

    Ya, surely it will require some tweaking. Sorry though, I havent a clue where to start to help anyone with this as There is no NB anymore and I dont have a i7 setup yet

    Also not sure what to advise for a ram choice, Maybe Patriot or G.Skill I see they both are offering 6GB kits. Corsair and OCZ do as well, not any in stock at newegg though.

    Mushkin is selling triple channel DDR3 just not 6GB yet as far as I can see (the 3x2GB Kits say 2GB for the amount) >>>

    Dont know when I will get i7 either, so I soon may not be able to help around here!

    *EDIT*

    Guess I looked to soon for you >>>
