    Best 16GB (8GB x 2) DDR3 for Maximus Impact + 4770K?

    Looking for a reasonably priced 16GB (2x 8GB) kit for my 4770K + Impact build.

    I want something that can reasonably run 2800MHz 24/7 stable if there is such a 16GB kit.

    Here is a link to the 2400MHz kits on Newegg. These are about the price I would like to see, curious if there are any "gem" kits like we see sometimes.

    Thanks in advance!

    you could just buy some ddr3 2800 ram.... probably on haswell you could just set the XMP profile since they seem to have a stellar IMC

    Was thinking of going with the Team, I think I will! Might try the 2400's and see what they'll do.

    Right, I just don't want to spend the money if I don't have to With RAM there are always those sneaky "budget" kits that clock like the big dogs for 1/3 the price, I just haven't seen info on any 16GB kits yet.
