    Hi,

    Finally I spent my hard earned cash to buy a new mobo and ram,hdd and PSU, for my 1yr old GPU.

    Current specs:
    PSU: Corsair TX650
    HDD: 1TB Hitachi Deskstar
    Mobo: Asrock z77 extreme 4
    CPU: i5-3570k
    GPU: Sapphire Radeon 6570 2G

    Now,all I need is RAM. Could you give me a not suggestion but a recommendation on w/c RAM to buy (NOTE: As much as possible kindly include the SKU/Part/Model# so I can check if it's listed here: http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z77 Extreme4/?cat=Memory)

    The store near me has G.SKills only
    F3-10666CL9S-8GBXL
    F3-12800CL10D-16GBXL
    F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
    F3-10666CL9S-4GBXL
    f3-12800CL9D-4GBXL

    I did some research on the net but reviews on a specific SKU provides limited and some of that SKU has a bad review when comparing it to it's competitor RAM.

    Btw, my friend recommends that since I'm using an Ivy Bridge CPU it's best to buy any RAM as long as the specs are: CL9, 1.5V, 1600 Mhz since that's the compatible RAM setting for an Ivy Bridge. Is that true? If it's, then what's the best RAM that has this spec?

    I'm planning to OC the rig. Thanks for the reply

    Depending on where you live, why are you only limited on your local store. If you live in the states you can order from newegg with a lot more options to chose from, and they will get it to you in 3 days.

    Yeah, that's why I'm very limited in stocks, I depend on the stocks the stores has. Urgh, so hard to build rigs.

    Well at least I have the info that I need (F3-12800cl9d-8gbxl). Thanks!
