    Those 8GB sticks have loose timings, (10-10-10-30). Could always try and set them tighter but not guaranteed to be stable.

    May be better to go with 4x 4GB....@CL 9.

    The 8GB 1600 Ripjaws you linked to.


    Those are 1333MHz, however I have 1333Mhz Corsair that will run 1600Mhz just fine.


    Do you really need 16GB of ram?

    2 sticks is sometimes more stable but you already have 8GB so it would be a waste to by another 16Gb imo. what's your budget?

    4 sticks should run at the advertised settings though. What are the timings of your installed ram?

    IB will be released next week. It would be wise to wait one week... But if you for some weird reason absolutely must get CPU now, get either 2500K or 2600K which ever fits your budget better. If you do video encoding and need multiple threads, then get 2600K. It's that simple.

    how much faster is core i7-3770 compared to the core i7-2600k for gaming

    right now on the egg i can get the 2600k for just a tad over 300$ us with promo codes
