Kamado King Posted September 9, 2008 Share Posted September 9, 2008 I have an EVGA mobo 680i AR version that I want to upgrade but I simply cannot decide what memory would be best for a variety of reasons. I intend to upgrade from an E6600 to an E8500 which has a 1333 FSB. I do not O.C., and will be running this computer only for game with Vista 64x at stock speeds. I had initially decided to get the Twin 2X4096-8500C5D to replace my Twin 2X2048-6400C4D but now I am not sure that is the best choice. Since I do not O.C., it has been suggested that i get 667 MHz memory that would sync with the FSB of the E8500. In addition, the 8500 in 4GB is not tested and approved on the Nividia site for this mobo. On the EVGA forum there are a number of posts that recommend against these boards indicating that the Corsair 4GB 8500 " does not play well with the 680i mobo". As you can see I am in a quandary deciding if I should buy the 8500C5D as recommended by the Corsair configurator. Please help. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
