    Post Hit me with a RAM

    Hey Guys!

    New to the forum

    Just want to ask you guys, I got about £160.00 to shell out on RAM (1 gig)
    I wanna get 2 gigs giving me a total of around £320 to spend on RAM...

    I just dont know which to choose????
    Can someone help...?
    Some say Corsair, some GEIL, some BALLISTIX, some OCZ... Im so baffled...

    The board is the DFI Lanparty nf4.. processor is 4400x2..

    Thanks guys!!!!

    £160 for 1Gb?? If you're not totally into memory overclocking, I would just go for some Corsair VS 2GB kit.. They cost about 180 quid + deliv.. and if u stay here long enuf and provide sufficient constructive posts (no spamming thank you very much).. you're eligible for free deliv at Scan.co.uk..

    Alternatively, there's always XMS Pro and the much heralded Ballistix Tracers 2GB kit.... for a premium..

    i personally use geil value ram - £66 per 1GiB stick.

    low latency memory isn't worth the added cost, if you ask me

    Yeah, just go for a decent 2Gb kit.

    Don't bother with the wizzo stuff unless you are into o/c'ing big time - it's just not worth the outlay.

    Hehe, Guys I will be here alright.. dont worry...
    The reason I chose that stuff was to go overclocking crazy...
    but yea, I dont mind paying less at all...

    I mean you got exact recommendations...?
    2gig is defo how much I want, but its all about which type...
    I defo wanna overclock the processor but not toooo fussed if doesnt go from 2.4 to 2.4344 if u catch my drift...

    Any exact recommendations? better to have 4 512's? 2 1gigs?
    so and so fourth...

    Well, no disrespect to Corsair, but DFI and Corsair RAM just don't mix.

    For that motherboard I'd go for OCZ. The stuff I've got in mine were, simply put, as plug'n'play as you can get with a DFI!

    Got them for 396 EUROs from http://www.pc-memory-upgrade.co.uk/
    Corsair 500R, Gigabyte GA-Z97MX Gaming 5, Win 10 Pro, i5 4690, Corsair HX750i, Sapphire Fury X, 256GB Sammy SM951 M.2 (System), 2TB WD20EZRX (iSRT w/ Sandisk SD6SB1M), WD SE16 640GB, 2x8GB Corsair Vengeance, Corsair H100i
    Coolermaster Stacker, MSI 890GXM-G65, Win 10 Pro, AMD X6 1055T, Corsair HX 650, Sapphire HD7950 OC, Crucial 128GB C300 SSD, HD501LJ Spinpoint T166, 4x2GB Corsair XMS3, custom watercooled (single loop, 2 rads)
    Corsair 550D, Gigabyte GA-Z87-D3HP, Win 8.1 Pro, i5 4670K, Seasonic X-Series SS-750KM3, Asus GTX780 Poseidon, 240GB Crucial M500 (system), iSRT(Plextor PX-128M5S + 2TB Seagate Barracuda), Toshiba 750GB "scratch disk", 2x8GB Corsair DDR3, custom watercooled (single loop, 2 rads)

    Crucial 2GB kit are pretty universal.. If DFI are having problems with Corsair, there's always GEIL or Kingston.. AFAIK, my 4x512MB of Microns are very very nice, runs 250MHz 2.5-3-3-10 no prob, abeit the 2T command rate.

    Baring in mind, its not really a question of cost..
    I'm willing to spend that £160 per 1gig but nonetheless, i would love to save cash...
    but further nonetheless, i dont wanna get the basic basic basic ram that got shipped over with chickens in the plane

    Fuji S5 Pro - Nikkor AF 50/1.8 - Nikkor AF 85/1.8
    Epson RD-1

    Film Kit:
    Leica M3 - Summicron 50/2 DR - Zeiss ZM 25/2.8 - M-Rokkor 40/2

    Olympus OM2n - Zuiko 50/2 Macro - Zuiko 50/1.4 - Zuiko 35/2.8
