  • "Arianet 1x2GB DDR3" - Support i7 940?

    I just bought an i7 940, I seen that I can get an "Arianet 1x2GB DDR3" for 20, if I bought 3 of these would they run in Triple Channel and work well with the i7 940?

    Providing your CPU supports the frequency, then it should be an issue - although a link to the model in question would have been ideal .

    People would generally recommend buying a triple channel kit rather than 3 single RAM sticks as in a kit as it avoids compatibility issues and differences in manufacturing such items (3 seperate sitck may have been made months apart and changes in material/brand may play a factor)
    i7 3770k - MSI Z77 Mpower - 16GB Avexir Mpower 2400Mhz - 500GB Samsung 840 EVO - EVGA GTX 980 SC - 1200W CM Gold - Custom Watercooling Loop - Corsair Air 540 - Steelseries 6Gv2 - Logitech MX 518 - Asus PB287Q - Creative T20

      The 20 one on offer currently is a laptop module, so wont work on a desktop motherboard, the other 2Gb Arianet module is rated at 1.6 - 1.8 volts, so isnt ideal for a triple channel i7 board..

      I'd be far more inclined to go for a mushkin kit..

        Hi mate, I would strongly suggest against doing that for reasons Nick said above, i'd buy this instead:

        Much better to buy a Kit instead of separate modules.

          Thanks, I can't afford to spend more than 60-70 on it though so I may have to just buy 4GB for now then another 2GB later or something like that :\
