Best Ram memories of December 2009

At last! DDR3 prices have finally been reduced and reached parity with DDR2 so no reason to hold back. If you're buying for an Intel system that uses a Core i5/Core i7 processor be sure to buy a memory kit targeted for the platform as they have specific voltages that cannot be exceeded without risking your processor. Remember when installing 4 GB of memory or more you'll want to install a 64 bit version of Windows!

    Kingston HyperX Triple Channel Kit - Memory - 6 GB ( 3 x 2 GB ) - DIMM 240-pin - DDR3 - 1600 MHz / PC3-12800 - CL8 - 1.65 V - unbuffered - non-ECC

    6 GB DDR3 1600 MHz RAM
    With the Nehalem's tri-channel memory controller you want to install RAM in three's instead of pairs for optimum performance. Now there are a lot of DDR3 modules available on the market but Intel has included one very large caveat with their Core i7 processors: that the memory voltage not exceed 1.65 volts if you wish to avoid premature processor death. So unless you are feeling particularly adventurous, you will want to be on the lookout for tri-memory kits made specifically for the Core i7. Also note that to use that 6 GB you're gonna need to install a 64 bit version of your OS of choice.
