Default Re: Which to take? MSI/Asus & Corsair/G-Skill

It really is a waste not to overclock since they come with a unlocked multipler and were made to over clock.You will need a better heatsink fan then the stock so tempertures will run cooler.It will overclock with the stock ,but it not a great HSF.I would go with G.Skill Ripjaws X Series since it is cheap and overclock well at least the ones I have do .The DDR3 1333mhz 7-7-7-21-1.5v and it will do 1600mhz just fine with raised timmings.The 16gig set I have will do 1866mhz with 10-10-10-30-1.5v .It will do higher if I start increaseing the voltage.But I never had no complaints with my Corsair memory that I have own.
