Hi All,

I'm going to upgrade my i7 920 to a 2600k & ASUS P67 Sabertooth (can't wait until I what RAM would be best suited to this combo? I currently have a 12gb Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz pack, what RAM will perform better with this and work better with an OC?

Thanks

I love mushkin ram. I plan on getting the mushkin redline 2133 8gb version. But when IB comes out I am going to look at maybe some dominator gt before I make my final decision.

I would say Gskill would not be a bad decision but I have never used them and not sure how well they preform. To me they seem on par or just below on par.

Any RAM will do for SB, 1600mhz is the sweetspot though. Higher than 1600mhz the gains are minimal and for everyday things like internet and gaming you won't even notice the difference between 1600mhz and 1866mhz+.

For overclocking, with SB, RAM doesn't affect your OC capability. The BLCK will stay at 100 and you don't need to change it, you just need to set the multiplier and find a stable voltage. **

So I'm safe with my current Corsair Vengeance 1600MHZ?

Yep, your Vengeance will be fine, you will have to use just two sticks though or buy one more stick because 1155 is dual channel. **
