    In my opinion GSKill is better.

    Why ? I can see only one advantage - smaller heatsinks.

    Compatability, Price, and Performance.

    I have found them to be compatible with more types of motherboards.
    Nothing can ruin a mood like when you're starting a build, and the RAM is incompatable. (suddenly, everything stops until you get new RAM) For me, that's never happened with GSKill, ever. I have been using them for five years now, and i know that they'll work every time.

    They usually cost less money in our markets here in the USA.

    Their performance in reviews is as good or better than the other brands.

  5. The following user thanks realneil For this above post:

    The Corsair ram you listed is good ram (like others have said).
    G-skill is also another good brand if you can find a source to get it..

    I myself am running 32GB of the same Corsair Vengeance ram but in black and have no issues. in my X79 system.
    I am also running the 8GB kit in my LanPC, i5 2500k.

    There are also other good brands, Like the Kingston Hyper X, They pretty much work on every system I have put them into.
    I use the Kingston's in most my HTPC, They are priced good and still have a nice heat sink to them.

    Jim's problem is that he has not reviewed any kits from Corsair, but he will shortly. I'm having Corsair send him a new kit for Z77

    I'm not saying that they're bad. There are a lot of good brands out there. I just stick with what I have the best luck with. This hasn't failed me yet.
    I'm comfortable recommending GSKill to others too.

    I have some HyperX and some Mushkin Redline (and some Mushkin Blackline) here, and they are good memory sticks. The Mushkin sticks would not work properly in my Sapphire Pure Black 990FX mainboard, but the GSkill and the HyperX did.

    Go Figure,...........

    G.Skill RAM for me have advantage with size of heatsink - hoses are hard to move due size and tipe of them.

    +1. GSKILL is the best I have reviewed so far. I have had Corsair Dominator and XMS in the past and they were solid but never tested them.

    Default Re: RAM for new rig - price and performance choice

    I just got 16GBs of G.Skill Ripjaws X 1600MHz and really like it. I also really like my 8GBs of Corsair Dominator GT 1866MHz, and 8GBs of Kingston HyperX Genesis 1600MHz. I had a very bad experience with the AMD branded Patriot memory. It was garbage and I promptly returned it. So, I can recommend G.Skill, Corsair, and Kingston, but not Patriot, based on my experience. If you go with G.Skill, I'm sure you will be happy. I got some because Jim and Neil speak so highly of the brand and they haven't steered me wrong yet.
    2nd Rig: AMD FX-8120; Corsair H105 ; Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3; 16GB G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 1600MHz; 2 x PowerColor HD 7870 Myst. Ed. (Tahiti LE); Fractal Design Arc XL; SeaSonic X Series 850W

    Man, this is the fourth time I have heard of problems with their RAM.
    They need to get it together because using their name on this RAM and then people having trouble with it changes perception of the AMD name.

    Yeah, AMD needs to cancel their contract with Patriot and find some other, more reliable company to make memory modules for them. This seems especially the case in light of their "vision" strategy where the CPU, GPU and RAM are supposed to be matched and compatible.

    Have you emailed AMD to let them know how many of us have had issues with their RAM? Wonder what the response will be?
