Hi,

I recently wanted to buy a new RAM.

The following are my specs:

CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor

MEMORY: KHX16C9T3K2/8X 8GB (4GB 512M x 64-Bit x 2 pcs.) DDR3-1600 CL9 240-Pin DIMM 1600 MHz (2 x 4GB) - Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C9D3K2/8GX (8 gigs total)

MOTHERBOARD: P8H61-MX R2.0 LGA1155 package

So i wanted to upgrade 1 of my RAMs with a new of 8GB so i can run FiveM since i have so much stutter due the scripts loading etc, the problem is that i dont'k know wich one should i buy counting with my motherboard and CPU specs.
I was thinkin on buy a G.SKILL Aegis 8GB (1x8GB) DDR3-1600MHz CL11 since its the unique option right now but the perfomance would be really bad i think, due te Latency etc...
Which RAM do u recommend me to buy?


Any help is greatly appreciated.

It looks like you are currently running 2 non-matching sticks of Kingston RAM. Is this correct? It's never recommended to run mismatched sticks of RAM. It can definitely cause issues. Have you run at least one full loop of testing with Memtest86 USB, with your current memory setup?

I doubt the stuttering you are experiencing is related to not enough RAM but, if you do want to upgrade, refer to the memory QVL for that motherboard - https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P8H61MX_R20/HelpDesk_QVL/

Wait how am i not running 2 non-matching sticks, the both i have are identic.

I have 2 of this: https://www.kuantokusta.pt/informatica/Componentes/Memorias/Kingston-8GB-XMP-Beast-2x-4GB-DDR3-1600MHz-CL9-KHX16C9T3K2-8X-p-1-261539

Well it was my test: https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/26918261

I maybe will test with Memtest86 USB too.

I opened this thread so you can posible give me other RAM's models with compatibility with my motherboard and CPU, i was thinking to buy a new RAM.

Ahhh, okay. The info in your first post led to a couple different models.
If you really want to upgrade your RAM look at the memory QVL for your motherboard (see my first post). That will show you memory that has been tested with your motherboard, by ASUS.
