Joe Johnson Posted October 5, 2010 Share Posted October 5, 2010 I am planning on building a new computer this month. The motherboard that I am planning on using is the Asus P6X58D Premium, and the CPU that I plan to use is the Intel i7 950. I would like to know what would be the best Corsair memory to use with this motherboard and CPU. The memory amount that I want to use is 6 gigs, and the memory frequency that I want to use is 1600mhz. I would like to get as low/tight timings as possible. Also, I would like your input as to what would be the advantage of using 2000mhz memory now. I know that the i7 950 will not support it, but if I want to upgrade processors in the future to an Extreme version, then I would have the higher frequency memory now. Also, in considering buying the 2000mhz memory now, do you think that there would be any significant performance improvement (over the 1600mhz memory) with the Extreme processor? Also, if I want to upgrade the memory to 12GB in the future (either 1600mhz or 2000mhz), would there be any problems? Thank you very much for your help!!!
