Asus Maximus Extreme RAM? CPU?


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, I have a this MB. Which CPU and Ram would be less hassle or more compatible??


-Q6600 and TWIN3X2048-1333C9(DHX - is it just a different heat spreader?)


-Q9450 and TW3X4G1600C9DHX


Is the 2. setup worth the money?


All is going to be watercooled


Or any other suggestions?

I am sorry but that is like apple to oranges.

And its really up to you and what you want and or expect.

But if you want 4 gig of memory I would suggest going with TW3X4G1600C9DHX and get the best bang for the BUCK on the CPU I would consider an E8400 Or Q8400 CPU as well if the budget is tight. Check the CPU prices at http://www.pricewatch.com
