Which memory should I get?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I currently have an i5-7400 and am looking to upgrade to 16gb of memory for my system, with the potential to upgrade CPU to team Red in 2020. I was wondering which of the following options would be recommended. 

 

https://www.newegg.com/g-skill-16gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820232728?Item=N82E16820232728&Tpk=N82E16820232728

 

or

Thank you.

As for the memory, have a look at Micron E-die, like this one. It is cheap and great for Ryzen (3600+ MHz potential), and not bad for Intel. Out of what you listed, the 1st one is better.

For a CPU upgrade, I recommend reading this guide.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I really like the way the Trident-Z looks, and I am not a huge performance nut as evidenced by my system specs currently, so I will probably stick with the first one.

but what if you get rid of the LEDs

 

3600Mhz is better in the long run

make sure you have the right cpu socket on your mobo, intel i5 uses a different socket than any amd cpus im aware of
