    All those memory kits will work with your board, but you will have to look around and see what will fit under your heatsink.

    I think Scythe has a forum where they list what memory fits under what heatsink, do you need me to find it for you?

    Hi!
    Based on my experience, and what I already read here, I would stay away from G.Skill. Especially these blue Ripjaws - I had those and they cost me a lot of time and nerves.
    Go for Corsair Dominators if you can.

    Thanks but I think that I donīt need because Iīm looking for memory kits with low heatsink.

    Looking in OCZ web i have seen these Kits of platinum serie that i understand is better that gold serie.

    OCZ 6 GB DDR3-1600 Tri-Kit OCZ3P1600C6LV6GK, Platinum CL6 8-6-24

    OCZ DDR3 PC3-12800 CL6 Edition Platinum Low-Voltage Triple Channel OCZ Technology

    OCZ 6 GB DDR3-2000 Tri-Kit OCZ3P2000LV6GK, Platinum Edition CL9 9-9-30

    OCZ DDR3 PC3-16000 Platinum Series Low-Voltage Triple Channel OCZ Technology

    Do you know if these kit are compatible with UD5 re.2?

    In your opinion can you tell me the best choice for my matherboard among all OCZ the kits I have indicated?

    And OCZ vs.G.Skill 3x2GB DDR3-1600 F3-12800CL9T-6GBNQ 9-9-9-24 1.6V?

    thanks regard

    If you need info on the board i made a thread here ***Unofficial GA-X58A-UD5/UD7* rev 2.0* Discussion Thread - XtremeSystems Forums., but if you need help use these forums as more people will have experience with your motherboard. I have that exact motherboard, and in that link i have my template for 4.5ghz. BTW why OCZ??????

    Thanks for suggesstions. I donīt understand the mean of BTW??? OCZ because in spain is easy to find ana few mwmory kit with high performance has low Heatsink and i need loow heatsink because may CPU heatsin is a Noctua NH-D14.

    I donīt like corsair very much and it is more expensive. G.skill kit with hgh performace has high heatsink. So.... i have to go for OCZ. Donīt you like OCZ?

    Now i have seen

    OCZ DDR3 PC3-12800 Platinum Low-Voltage Triple Channel 7-7-7-24

    vs.

    OCZ DDR3 PC3-16000 Platinum Series Low-Voltage Triple Channel OCZ Technology

    What do you think better choiche?

    Thanks regard
