    I wanted to order everything I needed today for a new x58 build.

    Any suggestions:

    1) which brand of 2Gig sticks to purchase?

    2) recommended vendor that has it in stock?

    3) is Cas Latency: 8 Timing: 8-8-8-24 appreciably better than Cas Latency: 9 Timing: 9-9-9-24

    I ended up ordering corsair from zipzoonfly. Hopefully they really have it in stock.

    What was wrong with the GSkill that made you buy corsair?

    Errr. ZipZoomFly stilled hadn't shipped my order so I called this morning and they told me the memory is now on backorder. I cancelled and said it would have been nice to have been told.


    Fortunately, NewEgg is showing some of the DDR 1600 memory in stock now.

    I just ordered the patriots from multiwavevideo and got the 25% off using live. Might go that route.

    I have been keeping track of 6GB (2GBx3) 1600 DDR3 memories since beginning of the October. It appears that sometimes Newegg hits a surge of orders that makes them run out of the DDR3 memories. Don't worry too much and give it a few days or a week. They have been refilling the DDR3 inventories fairly quickly. It happened about 3 times already, so I won't panic until I feel it's the right time to buy them for myself.

    they only had corsair and patriot when i ordered. Both had the same stats, but the patrio was 30 bucks cheaper. 64 bucks cash back :)
