Albert says:

I think I am going to buy 8gb GeIL 8 GB DDR3-2133 evo veloce.
It is only 50 euro, it fits well in my red themed build and it has a weird name (Geil means horny in dutch).

docksta says:

But faster RAM only costs like £5-10 extra lol… that’s not gonna get you a better graphics card, and it does help a little with performance, although not allot.

TheCrankPony says:

Hey Nico, eine Frage:
Müssen alle 4 RAM-Riegel gleich sein, oder reicht es, wenn die in den blauen und in den schwarzen Slots gleich sind?

WhatTheHuq? says:

Not really recommended, I would rather overclock my ram to 1866 rather than spending $80 for just a tiny bit faster RAM.

Beethoven Dalmao says:

I always use the maximum ram my motherboard support. Not because is better, just because im crazy…

Albert says:

I don’t really have reasons to have fast ram. but it costs just 5 euro more than the 1600 Mhz ram that I found. (Pc parts often cost a lot of money in the Netherlands) my motherboard supports it (Asus Maximus V Gene)

Maybe you can suggest ram that is cheaper with good performce (and preferably red, but it doesn’t really matter)
Otherwise, do you think ”GeIL” is a good brand, I never heard of them before.

calical26 says:

i got 16GB of this but 1866 overclocked to 2133 thinking about getting another 16GB kit

Garry Perkins says:

great review

KasparOnTube says:

whoa.. they are 2133mhz and 1.5? thats good

Oo2k10 says:

Hey reckon this memory will fit with cooler master hyper 212 evo cpu cooler?

TigerArmy1962 says:

My Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z supports 2400MHz (when overclock AMD FX-8xxx). I use G.Skill TridentX 19200 2400MHz @ 2400MHz. You’re wrong man. I can show you if you dont believe me

Wrightshire says:

I was planning to get some for an A10 based system.

Albert says:

what speeds can I get with my i5 3570k and Asus z77 maximus gene V mobo?

Skafti Hannesson says:

sry but this dosent CONCERN this video but i just want to find out so dose the thermaltake armor revo support 2 optional fans on the h100i ? plz respond

Albert says:

would it be worth upgrading to 1866 or this one from a g-skill ripjawsX 1333
(just performance wise)

Javid Askerov says:

My MB is Gigabyte S2H-55M and CPU is intel i7 870. will it support these rams? pls help. thans beforehand

Albert says:

would overclocking my ram be a good idea or should I just buy some new ram?
(I know mushkin can handle overclocking very good but I don’t know how g-skill will perform)

Wrightshire says:

Oh, in that case, sure! 5 euros more is a good price. GeIL is a good brand, yes.

I relate to you on the expensiveness of PC parts, here in Britain they cost lots too!

SkylerWXG says:

That’s the motherboard which supports them. The CPUs do not have native controllers for that frequency.

Laurentiu Dinca says:

Maybe that’s why it doesn’t have the best timings… because it operates at a low voltage…
Good review! Thanks!

seaottersoup says:

Yep, that’s some fine looking memory alright. 🙂

Bas van der Meij says:

Meh i never really liked spending more money on ram.. i personally have a i7 2600 8GB DDR3 1333mhz cl9 ram.. and a gtx 660ti.. and i pretty much get simular results as you get in the games.. ofc in cpu benchmarks not.. the i7 3770k is a good bit faster 😛 i’d say spend the money you save by going with cheaper ram on a graphics card 😀 well if you’re a gamer ofc..

SkylerWXG says:

None, ATM. The max supported is 1866 by the AMD CPUs.

KasparOnTube says:

isnt fx4300/6300 and 8320 and 8350 support 2133 by def?
also as manually set almost all apu cpus can do with 2133 no prob at all.

calical26 says:

i like the ram look nice in my build i have a Z77 sabertooth

Bas van der Meij says:

i7 ivy bridge can use the speed of 1600mhz ram.. and yeah if the motherboard supports it you can put in fast ram but that does not automatically says that the cpu can use the bandwith 🙂

Wrightshire says:

You see very little performance increase above 1600 MHz, unless you have an AMD A4/A6/A8/A10, in which case it lets the graphics run better. I’d recommend for you to not go for 2133 unless your motherboard supports it and you have a really good reason to need faster RAM.

My recommendation would be some 1600 MHz RAM, as that’s the sweet spot. It’s cheaper, but still offers more performance than 1333, and only slightly less than 1866+ in most applications.

calical26 says:

yes it would be way better to upgrade 1333 is slow you upgrade to 1866 your apps will open and close way faster

lizardfly1 says:

Actually that is the highest memory speed it can support without problems. Not the max. The max is only limited to the motherboard.

calical26 says:

it dont matter about the cpu if your motherboard can use higher speed of ram that what maters max for a i7 3770k 1600mhz my mobo supports higher speeds

Bas van der Meij says:

Well yeah but still, like between 1333 and 1866 there is quite a difference.. plus the i7 2600 can’t even use more than 1333mhz.. it would only make a difference if your graphics card has to use it.

MrCedwards7 says:

ye somewhat agree with you there, i dont have alot of money so could only afford 15 3450 3.1 and raedon HD7850, but managed to get a good deal on 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz corsair vengeance which was quite handy

calical26 says:

1333 is very slow you upgrade to something fast like 1866 everything will run faster and better i had 8GB of kingston hyperx blue 1333 and upgrade to 16GB Patriot Viper 3 1866 my cpu gpu windows score went way up way faster
