    Apparently I posted this thread under the wrong topic and it got kyboshed soooooo....

    For those of you who are interested, I am building a new computer.

    This is what it is built on:

    Motherboard: Crosshair IV Extreme
    CPU : FX 8150
    RAM : TBA (Rccomendations accepted.)
    CASE : CoolerMaster Haf 932 Advanced
    GPU : Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 #1 (Second one to come in May; both reference.)
    PSU : CoolerMaster SilentPro 850W Modular.
    CPU Cooler : CPNS 9900 MAX Red LED. I did the math with the Noctua D-12 and I currently run a very loud Thermaltake Big Typhoon VX....winner is ZALMAN!!!

    Pics to come! :rockout::pimp:

    Hey welcome back! :toast:

    This DDR3 1866 1.5v kit may be a bit better for a BD setup:

    G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 S...

    My AMD systems don't really like 1.65v kits but I don't know a lot about memory... just going by what I might choose.

    Good luck w/your build :rockout:

    Every AMD DDR3 rig I've built gave me issues w/1.65v ram and no issues with 1.5v ram (so far). But like I said I don't know much about memory :rolleyes:

    Actually I did a bit of research and you're right. I will get the 1866's. Apparently lower voltages=less stress on the IMC when overclocking.

    Let me know how they run when you get your rig going- considering getting something like this to replace the Corsair Vengeance 1600's in my main rig :cool:
