    Default Which Rams to buy 1600mhz for Corei7

    Okay so i'm planning my core i7 built over the coming weeks and i have already set my mine
    on the following:

    1. Asus Rampage II Extreme
    2. Intel i7 920
    3. Team Xtreme 1600mhz 2GB x3 (http://www.teamgroup.com.tw/teamgrou...id=1&pl2_id=49) or Corsair 1600mhz 2GB x3 (http://corsair.pricegrabber.com/sear...TR3X6G1600C8D/

    My decision is now stuck with the Brand of memory i should buy i mean i'm comparing Specs between the 2 brands i mentioned and they are the exact same... but as usual the Corsair ones are much much more expansive!!!

    Therefore i'm thinking is it worth it to even pay additional premium to buy those Corsair Rams? I mean they have the exact same specs...timings and mhz both -1600mhz

    We are all know Corsair is one of the best RAM and they overclock well too, that is why they are premium cost. I personally never heard of Team Xtreme until recently last couple days, if I were you, I would look into further about the product review, check compability with the board you try to get.

    Bullydog,
    Are you going to create a work blog for the i7 build?

    Bullydog,

    Thanks deton,
    in terms of compatibility with Rampage II Extreme Yes...here it is http://www.teamgroup.com.tw/teamgrou...id=1&pl2_id=49
    well as much as the website says its compatible with the Rampage II

    Its a pretty new brand too but i've heard of them, they do sell quite a number of DDR2 Extreme kits in our local stores here and they dont come cheap but if i do a direct price comparison in this instance between the Corsair and Team Xtreme its about difference of USD$80

    Yeah i certainly can do a worklog but it aint gonna produce stuff like u do

    I'm just very excited to OC that 920 it looks like every1 is hitting 4ghz on Air!!! (Including Skyguy i presume?) wonder how far i could go with my Revised Watercooling setup and the 920

    Deton, i think its about time u jump the i7 wagon as well
    sell off both yr Rigs and u can pick up the i7 ... better sell them off now than later at least its worth much more now rather than 3-6 months later u wont be able to sell it at the price u can command right now. Apprently with the mainstream Core i5 coming, the LGA775 selling price might be even lower :confused:

    EDIT* some opinions about Team Xtreme Memory http://www.overclock.net/intel-memor...about-buy.html

    Wait until we test the DIABLO 2000MHz kit that CSX just sent to me, Ill be shipping them to Jake shortly, they claim to make some of the fastest desktop memory in the world.

    I am running 6Gbs of 1600MHz Patriot Vipers in my 965 and Rampage 2 and have not had a single problem with them. I am also using 6Gbs of 1600MHz GSkill in my 940 build, they have also been good

    I plan on using the CSX kit in the Foxconn X58 Bloodrage as soon as I can buy one. This motherboard can handle DDR3 2500 and up and is set up for extreme overclocking, for $299 .

    Nahhhh...don't under estimate yourself, at least you will be the first one have the RIIE on here. I can't afford i7 with RIIE at the moment unless I sell most parts of my two rigs. Been thinking about it, putting on the eBay (unless Buy&Sale forum taken place here then I might post the listing....), but I like to keep one rig though. The MIIF and Q9650 will go for more than Maximus and Q6600 at the moment but I really like the Q9650 E0, overclock pretty well.

    4.0Ghz is durable for 24/7 on WC but this is all depend on the temps as well. I have seen 4.6ghz on air reported, of course it is not for 24/7.

    Wow that's fierce!!! 2500mhz??? so what kinda of voltage is that?
    i thought that those i7 can only take memory voltage of up to 1.65 only? anything more than that would damage the i7's memory controller?

    Okay Dr D, so now that u own a Rampage 2 extreme and would be getting the BloodRage...what do u think would be the better board? should i wait for the Foxconn Blood Rage? or the Rampage is just as good?

    From testing the triple channel DDR3 and messing with the new i7 so far, the key here seems to be your final overclock speed that you hope to attain, especially if you go with a 920 and a locked multiplier.

    From what I can surmise, ultimately your RAM will limit your OC, assuming your mobo is good and can take you high. HOWEVER, your mobo also needs to support various RAM "ratios" to control your RAM speeds from being too high once your OC goes way up.

    When my i7 920 is running at 4.0Ghz, the RAM can be hitting 1866 if your mobo doesn't allow you to change the ratios/speeds. So ultimately your RAM (or your mobo) will limit your OC. If your RAM will go to 1800 then you should be fine. If it won't overclock beyond that then you're limited. Otherwise get faster RAM or ones that will OC higher. 1600 RAM doesn't OC proportionately as high as lower RAM, we all know this. So find modules that will hit 1800 or more, or just buy the higher rated ones.

    But as I said, depends how high you want to go on your 920 speeds. There comes a point where the CPU will not go higher......my guess is that the Diablo kit will show that. The 920 will top out before the RAM does. But those kits are expensive.

    As for mobos bully, it depends what you want to do. I'll be reviewing the Rampage and the Blood Rage, so that will be 3 1366 boards I'll see up close soon. The ASUS P6T Deluxe is killer but won't do tri-SLI on stock cooling. The Rampage will, and it's for serious OC'ers but it's STINKING expensive. The Blood Rage looks to be a great board but it only has 3 DIMM slots so you'll be limited from going to 6 later. We're trying to get the new ECS 1366 board, it has 4 PCIe slots if you're a hardcore folder

    In the end, depends what you want to accomplish and how much you're willing to spend

    i wont be the first though...Dr D already owns a RIIE and he will be buying the Foxconn BloodRage
    so im also wondering the RIIE is magnificent so why get BloodRage?

    We want to have 2 different test rigs, not both ASUS. So I'll keep the P6T and he's going with the Foxconn. Besides, he loves the red look of the Bloodrage LOL. I don't mind either way, I'm happy with my P6T, and besides, these i7's are SMOKING fast no matter what!

    The Bloodrage does have 4 PCI-e slots , and Foxconn says the reason for only having three memory slots is to help with the Extreme Overclocking. once they start making 4Gb modules, the Bloodrage will be able to hold 12 Gbs.

    We will have to wait until I can find one to buy, so Jake can review it. I am semnding him my Rampage 2 first, so by the time he finishes the Bloodrage review, he will know which board is truly the best overclocker .

    Hold on a sec though, I'm no extreme OC'er LOL. I'm still learning these new i7 rules

    But that's my point, it depends what the goal here is, if it's overclocking or other, etc. My guess is all i7 boards can overclock pretty darn well and give great results. I'm sure some will be a bit better than others, but I don't have the liquid nitrogen out and going for world records here either. I appreciate good features, BIOS stability, ease of use, good layout, and overclocking.

    Havent purchased a mobo or ram yet, but I'm leaning towards the Asus P6T Deluxe as it seems popular and OCZ Gold 6GB memory, I hope that combo allows me to OC to 4GHz otherwise I'll be upset >=( lmao

    edit: 920 just came in *giddyness* ... guess the much cheaper 775/ddr2/x48 route is not an option anymore. High-end i7 it is! Can't wait to enjoy Half-Life 2 Episode 2 on the big screen without choppiness

    @ I Luv, you wouldn't notice much different from i7 sys vs. LGA775 in games but everything else core i7 kicks butt.

    @ Bully,
    i wont be the first though...Dr D already owns a RIIE and he will be buying the Foxconn BloodRage
    so im also wondering the RIIE is magnificent so why get BloodRage?
    Dr. D dosen't count , he's always the first getting it and he's eventually sell the board.
    I was thinking a member owning it and create a thread (RIIE club like MIIF one) we will generate more members. I'm sure Sky & Dr. D agrees on this.

    P6T Deluxe is almost the same (overclocking capability) as RIIE board but much less extreme features, if you are not extreme Ocer then you will save some cash on P6T. Because you won't use all the features comes with the RIIE.
    I think Asus has released the standard P6T board, it's a little cheaper than the Deluxe version.

    The BloodRage is another bad ass looking board, unfortunately only 3 DIMM slots.
    How long do we have to wait for memory maker to release 4Gb stick kit?

    Load temp for i7 920, 4Ghz (24/7 usesage) overclocked is about 70ish degree on HFS. It's probably in late 60 or early in 70 on water. This chip is hot as QX9650, so guys if you really want to push i7 to its max protential then you should considering on water at least
