RAM Recommendations Please?

Recommended Posts

Currently on 8Gb of Mushkin Blackline on P8Z68-v Pro. Not too sloppy, but I expect FSX would benefit from something a little better. The timings are 9-9-9-24 which are not exactly earth shattering for quality RAM.

 

I'm looking to upgrade to 16Gb and something with better timings.

 

I get a little confused with all that's available, so would appreciate any help?

 

Ta!

Good Morning Dougal,

 

Are these the 2133 flavor?

 

If so with that Asus board you are doing pretty well. You could up it to 16gb @ 2400mhz ram but its not going to be earth shattering, you may not notice nothing at all for FSX.

 

Personally I would wait and use the cash towards a new CPU, M/B and DDR4 ram.

Czech out the Gskill Trident 8x2 kit, look for the 16gb 2400 cl10. It can be further overclocked, I am a firm believer in Gskills product.

Bet you, you'll be hard pushed to notice much difference at all.

 

Don't except anything Earth shattering at all... if anything.

If you run a SandyBridge 2500k - 2700k they support up to OC 2133mhz.

2400mhz kit you need downclock, no reason to buy any faster than 2133mhz kit.

 

With a IvyBridge thats fine with 2400mhz kit , not all z68 boards support Ivy not sure if this one do.

Asrock and Msi have Z68 boards that support Ivy.
