    I doubt either will do 2000mhz effectively on an AMD platform. For best RAM performance on an AM3 system you need a balance of frequency, timings and CPU/NB (IMC) frequency. At 2000mhz RAM, the IMC cannot handle higher frequencies and thus will be a bottleneck to the RAM. You want the lowest timings possible. Look for a lower latency 1333mhz or 1600mhz kit.

    Can I get a suggestion for an 8 gig DDR3 set? I'm looking but that was the one I narrowed down to. I'd like to have a fast set of 8 gigs.

    I've double checked and they seem to go together nicely. I see a lot of people building the 1090T+iv formula with g skills. also that cooler sounds pretty solid. I was looking at a Zalman but I really like coolermaster.

    Confirmed my order this morning on newegg. I grabbed two of those ram sets to top off my total memory at 16 gigs.

    I am so fucking excited to put it together!!!!! This will be a HUGE upgrade for my processing and memory.

    The price is not bad for a 1600 CL7 8GB kit, but it is always risky to run two different pack of memory together. Sometimes we have to lower the speed to get full stable
