You might as well buy just multi kits of Samsung DDR-1600 CL11. There under 50 USD range and can be overclocked to 2400 which is a chance not really needed. Good thing it's under 50 USD. --- Originally Posted by Manicdan using a OCed quad for torrenting is like robbing your local video store with a rocket launcher.
1.65V - bought it with my i7 930 two years ago, I believe that was the norm back then. It's this kit: http://www.mushkin.com/Memory/Redline/998691.aspx --- -What is best in life? -To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women.
It does improve memory latency, but much like memory speed, it's not going to make much difference in practical use right now.
My old kits can handle 1333 5-5-5-15-1tand also 1800 7-7-7-20 on Phenom 2 1055T. Benching them against 1800 7-7-7-20 is close.
I don't have 1800 that time sadly my AMD machine got replace with Intel but I kept the ram. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/5700922/Everest/Latency%20performance%20chart.PNG --- Originally Posted by Manicdan using a OCed quad for torrenting is like robbing your local video store with a rocket launcher.
Don't worry because the ram I use are very rare due to high failure rate but I got lucky to get best ones. These ram has a good IC that could do 2200 at 8-8-8-24 which makes it way easier to achieve 5-5-5-15 at 1333 just like DDR2 lol
Sadly Intel Sandy Bridge based i7/i5 couldn't handle these sticks unlike AMD Thuban or the older Intel i7. http://i4memory.com/blogs/eva2000/34-12gb-super-talent-speed-series-2200-cas8-ws220ux4g8-elpida-50nm-hyper-ics.html --- Originally Posted by Manicdan using a OCed quad for torrenting is like robbing your local video store with a rocket launcher.
It just seems unreal that any gaming rig would even use more than 3GB at a time,
Generally 4GB suffices in almost any situation. That is, with normal typical use. There are plenty of specific things people can do where more RAM is actually beneficial, and there are a few games where, if you are not careful (close browsers and such) you can easily go over 3GB. --- I5 760 | MSI GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II | 8GB 1600MHz | WD 1TB 7200Rpm | Corsair VX 550w | CM Gladiator | Samsung S24A350H | Board Corsair K90 | Mouse Corsair M90
