Crosshair V Formula 990FX vs Sabertooth 990FX vs gigabyte 990FXA-UD3
Posted 03 February 2012 - 04:18 AM
In the ram, I am still devided between the G.Skill Sniper SR 1600 CL9 (the one that works on 1.5 v) and the Corsair Vengeance 1600 CL9. In terms of speed, it should be almost the same, the price is the same here, but the sniper is low profile, so it won't hit my cooler and isn't in the QVL. The corsair vengeance is in the QVL, but I am not sure if it won't hit my cooler.
I will probably buy the Sniper, and see if it does work. If it doesn't work, I return it and bring the vengeance.

Buy vengeance low profile RAM modules (2x 4GB).
Is it good for overclock? I was looking for ram that I could later do some overclock and it is not very expensive now.

I read here in OCC that the corsair vengeance series received a award, so I am expecting for them to be good.

I'm going to build a new system from some scraps, so was thinking of the Crosshair or the Sabertooth and couldn't decide.
But since the Crosshair V is double the price of the Sabertooth in Denmark and taking what you guys have said here, the choice now is easy.
(Just joined this forum so I could tell you guys my appreciation)
