my upcoming computer is going to have the following hardware:
_ Intel i5 2500K
_ Intel DH67CF
_ G.Skill xxxxxxxx
The system should be power sufficient, reliable and silent.
If I could, I would underclock & undervolt, but afaik the mainboard does not allow that.
The mainboard has two banks which can take up to 16 GB of RAM modules.
My question: can you recommend compatible G.Skill RAM modules for that system, please ?
The chipset is called H67, suitable for DDR3 1333/1066-MHz RAM.
Would it work if I took one single 8GB module only instead of 2x4 GB, or do both banks have to be filled ?
Otherwise I would go for either 2x4 or 2x8 GB.
As far as I can see, these following modules seem to be compatible:
My favourite design:
... but they are designed for the Intel P55 chipset only. Are there similar looking modules for the H67 chipset existing ? I don't mind taking RAMs with higher specs than the motherboard is capable to use. They are all downwards compatible anyway, right ?
The ones on the picture have 1.35 instead 1.5 V .. would that make any difference in power consumption and/or heat generation ?
