    Hey guys okay!
    Well I am about to do an upgrade on my memories of my PC
    I'm looking for models of Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600MHz CL10 FURY 4GB DIMM HX316C10FW/4
    but the specification says they are compatible with Intel P55, H67, P67, Z68, Z77, Z87 and H61 chipsets,
    that is not the my case, my chipset is X58, wanted to know if it is possible to install or not.:confused:

    G.Skill is good yes, better than kingston. Probably, never had a G.Skill build go, but have had a kingston RMA lol

    Good advice from Mystikal

    I have never admired Kingston since I ditched my old Desktop system when the Kingston's RAM gold connectors peeled off easily.

    Note: I am not trying to say Kingston RAMS are bad.

    I thought for RAMs work in triple channel, it was only necessary to use the same kit 3 Memory:bangin::wallbash::doh:

    it is the best idea, to use 1 kit of 3 instead of 3 separate pieces. The kits are made to work as a "team" and best suited to work together.

    Guys one more question, this X58 chipset works with 1.6v in memories,
    most memories today are 1.5v have any problem with the voltages?

    Make sure you have the latest bios for that motherboard, and then setting the DDR to xmp should take care of that. The board is capable of adjustments for Dim voltage. You should read the manual on your bios.
