Check your motherboards QVL to make sure the ram is compatible. G Skill is nice ram and you pay a premium for Corsair as it lends itself to overclocking and has lower latencies than many others. I liked OCZ ram until they sadly stopped making it.
I'd prefer 16GB so I'm future-proofed. This will be final build for a while to come so I have no plans of upgrading it in the future. So would you recommend Corsair over G.Skill?
Quick question. Would buying the ASUS Maximus IV Extreme Z be worth it? It's just that I've read that it's not the best Z68 board out there even though ASUS advertises it to be. What would my other options be from PCCG?
