i7-920 + HX3X12G1600C9


Recommended Posts



I'm building a workstion/gaming PC and I was wondering if the i7-920 CPU (overclocked to about 3Ghz) work well with the HX3X12G1600C9 12GB pack? The motherboard I'm going to use is a Asus Rampage II Extreme.


Also I wont need the 12 GB very often (only when I need to run multiple virtual machines) so will I get noticeable better performance when gaming if I get a TR3X6G1600C7D kit instead?

What O.S. are you going to use?

If you will use a 64 Bit O.S. then the 12 Gig kit would be the way to go!

And no matter if its 6 or 12 Gig itwill not have much if any effect. But for sure if you want 6 modules the 12 Gig set is the only way you should go!
