Thanks for the advise, one of my issues is I need low profile cause my Prolimatech Megahalem is such a beast it wont let me use alot of the ram out there. So that samsung looks like the right choice.
So is the sabertooth the best board to get? Newegg has some open box crosshair v's too, is it too risky getting open box stuff? I want to kind a keep my cost as low as possible cause im also thinking of getting the samsung 840 pro 256gb. I dont want to have to upgrade again for another 3 years.
Also are those random sticks you bought or did you buy a few sets and cherry pick some?
