I'm in a bit of a pickle here with rams hahah which one would I jump to?
this one:
G.Skill Sniper 16GB 1600mhz CL9
or
G.Skill RipjawsX 16GB 1866mhz CL9
The price differences is just a 100 peso

OR should I just get an 8 gb kit? (Can you recommend me some if ever on from that website, thanks)

I just mainly play games and watch movies and surf the net on my computer.
Although I do want to record/stream gaming in the future.

Gahh been reading things for 8gb v 16gb, my headhurts hahah it's time I turn to you guys for inputs.

And hmmm idkwtd :confused::confused::confused::confused:

Thanks!

Either kit should work out fine- Snipers, Ripjaws, and Ares are all pretty much the same AFAIK, the only difference is/are the heatsinks.

I would go for a 2x4GB kit though

Gonna try and play with that over the weekend. Currently have the xiggy fan only for the dk2 prolly will just add a scythe gt ap 15 on it as push and have the xiggy as pull. Or should I just get 2 scythes? Is the sniper series from g.skill ok? Planning on getting 16 gb pairs but theres a wide range of choices. Jaws (x,z's), Aries et al.
Heard that x's and z's are more tailored for Intel and the snipers are for all around. How bout them aries' ?
Ripjaws X work great here. Picked up the 1866 CAS8 1T kit and they happily chug along on stock timings at 2133, with only a slight bump in voltage (1.5 to 1.52V). Really, if it's G.Skill, you can't go wrong. Even their lower end kits will usually give you a decent OC.

you can probably add another 560ti for SLI if that PSU can handle.

What GPU you plan to buy?

Was waiting for nvidia's 8x's to come out so that prices for the 7 series would go down a bit, atm the AMD offerings are a bit pricy.. Looking for something like 760's or 770's

On FX oc'ing:

Adding more ram to the banks put stress on the IMC right? So it would also affect overall oc potential of the chip and platform?

...........and the 8350 OC pics will wait for atleast another week or til April 10. And it brings me to this: anyone here have one of these installed on their CVF-Z:



On various forums (XtremeSystem, Overclock.net or something, AMD, G.Skill forums & such) they either say it's incompatible or works quite like charm, or reports the speed of 1866MHz stead of 2400MHz, etc... Anyone here have one of these up & running solid on their CVF-Z? Look awesome (black & red color schemes), run @ the highest possible frequency (hope FX-8350 loves this frequency though) & does not cost much - still less than grand in sheckels (or less than 200USD). Thanx in advance. Sorry for OT.

P.S. G.Skill TridentX 2x4GB 2400MHz 10-12-12-31 2N 1.65v Intel XMP compatile or ready don't remember that part.

I have a set of those YautjaLord, They work fine but really aren't my favorite in the board. I prefer my Sniper 2133. I found them difficult to get any really good performance from compared to others. They're great if you just want to set and forget them and have 2400 memory but I really don't think they're worth the added $$.

599 sheckels. Divide it by 3.5 or 3.6 (sheckels for U$D) - you'll get how much they cost for me. ~166U$D or something in a range & it includes all usual taxes & sh*t. Thanx for info man, keep headbangin'.

Wow that's pricey. When I bought mine a few months ago they were about $100 CDN with taves included. Is that all tax and duties? Are all the PC parts that expensive there?

Not just: right about EVERYTHING is expensive in Israel; taxes is what plagues this otherwise awesome (or atleast great) country. Taxes in Israel are ridiculous, to keep it short & definitely not sweet. lol Still 599 sheckels are not that high of a premium for me. No sweat. :)

Well it's up to you in the end YautjaLord, I still think your best bet would be something in the 1866-2133 range. and only 2x4gig sticks it's easiest on the IMC and seems to be the performance range for most FX these days.
Here's a shot of two different sets of ram I picked up both are 2x2gig and I'm using all four together. One is G.Skill Flae 1800 7-8-7 and the other is G.Skill Pi 2000 9-9-9. Here's both working together at 2200, mind you these were used and cost me $100 for both and so far it's the best damn ram I have.

Well it's up to you in the end YautjaLord, I still think your best bet would be something in the 1866-2133 range. and only 2x4gig sticks it's easiest on the IMC and seems to be the performance range for most FX these days.
Here's a shot of two different sets of ram I picked up both are 2x2gig and I'm using all four together. One is G.Skill Flae 1800 7-8-7 and the other is G.Skill Pi 2000 9-9-9. Here's both working together at 2200, mind you these were used and cost me $100 for both and so far it's the best damn ram I have.
I'm alittle jelly now

They are 2x4GB, C:R's Early Access (Pre-Alpha) asks 8GB though & that's bare minimum; it's Pre-Alpha though. Today they updated it though & it runs way better than when i 1st played it (13th March, i'm one of KS backers of Carma:R, if i didn't said that before). As for why this particular RAM - aside from freq, also cause of coloring scheme: goes good with CVF-Z & HAF 932. (black & red colors. :)) Thanx for pic, CPU's OC looks down right beastly. Cheers man, keep headbangin'!!! :rockout:

I love you background, it really brings me back.
I know I needed a background with a car in it for a competition and that was what I picked, I just couldn't resist the "flux capacitor"

Of what, aren't you rebuilding yet??

I have to admit you had me a bit lost there at the beginning. I assume that's a game??

@Durvelle27 That was a pretty sweet find honestly. I have to say they just don't make it like they used to all high speed high timings any more even the low speed stuff has too high timings.
See now that 290x makes me jealous, I love GFX cards.
How far along are you now??

Oh and by the way my NB was almost 3100 in that shot. It will make a bigger difference than ram does.

C:R - Carmageddon: Reincarnation. Cows & rest of peds equal points/credits, flagman earns you 1000 credits & more (8000 if you gib/splatter one), there's the iconic Twister monster truck with drill @ it's front, it is the reimagining of 1997's Carmageddon, supports DX11 through deffered renderer/MegaTexturing, you can make the opponent fly out of his car if rammed hard enough, it is eccessively graphic & it's f**kload of fun. :laugh: It'll run real awesome on i7's & 8000 Piledriver series, 8GB & above of RAM, HD 7900/GTX 700 series (make it 2 SLI or CFX :)) oh & it's eccessively graphic. Did i said it's eccessively graphic? It's more than that when you'll see herd of cows & peds bunched up in one spot/place/etc..... You've being warned - the fun there is endless. lol

P.S. PayPal & KS backers of 35$ & 25$ respectively get this game free from Steam to DL, along with 97 & 98's Carma & Splat Pack free of charge as well from GOG.com. Also one gets DRM-free/non-Steam/LAN-only version of C:R for self or for friend/relative/girlfriend/etc....
