I think I will be going with G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB.http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.as ... 6820231445
Is OCZ known for crapping out?
OCZ usually does better with system memory, however, they are not my first choice, or second, or third ... You get the picture.
Motherboard manufacturers have long lists of compatible memory. Note that not every stick of memory will be tested, however, if you find a company that is on the list, and complies with standards and requirements [single sided, double sided, voltages, and etc.] another untested stick of memory will work, if it fits tested criteria of a like stick of tested memory.
So, check motherboard manufacturers memory compatibility tables.
Sorry, 1:30 a.m. here.
