Recommend DDR3 Memory For Sandy Bridge System

Postby Ian on Fri May 06, 2011 9:54 am

Can someone recommend DDR3 memory for an Intel H67 based system? I've been looking around and there doesn't seem to be a lot of difference between the various brands. I'm not looking to overclock but I'd like to step up to DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600 or 10666).

Any thoughts on G.Skill's Sniper memory? Newegg has a promo where you can get 8GB for $70.

The Snipers were back in stock again so I ordered 8GB worth. Hopefully it will work well with my i5-2500K.
