timing or bus speed? Which one is important?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
i was going to buy new ripjaws kit, but i was puzzled by diffrent price of 4gb kit. Thay has diffrent timing, price, bus. When i looked for 1600mhz bus, then i found diffrent price for diffrent timings. What should i choose low timing or high bus?
Oh yes my mobo is asus p67 pro, with i5 2500k.
And i will be ocing.

Go for the lowest timings combined with the highest megahertz kit you can afford. I'm currently running a G.Skill Eco kit which had 7-8-7-24 clocks at 1600MHz stock but oc'd these sticks are beastly for what I paid for them. I've just ordered the G.Skill Ripjaws X kit which has 8-9-8-24 timings at 2133MHz so they have a much higher potential for ocing due to the binning of the ic's which are probably Elpida ic's (I hope).

i studied some reveiws and test they show that any thing above 1600 mhz is not that worthy for extra bucks in real world test and gaming. But some low lantency gives slight prformance. Also some extra 2 or 4Gb proves to be unworthy over 4Gb of ram at this moment, but who knows about future app and games.
