DDR3-1066 vs DDR3-1333

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I always assumed that DDR3-1333 would be better than DDR3-1066 since it has a higher clock speed and therefore can transfer more data each second. However, after reading up about RAM somewhat, I am now unsure as some people say it is better to get DDR3-1066 and overclock it to a higher speed since it has better timings.

For the sake of arguement, if I overclocked both to say 1400 MHz, and asuming I have already dealt with the extra voltage and heat, which would perform better?

You wouldn't notice any difference in real world stuff.

Depends on the timings. DDR3-1066 CL7 vs DDR3-1333 CL9 (generic standards) would make no difference whatsoever.

So there is no performance issue? Which would be better to overclock? There mut be some difference otherwise what would be the point of manufacturing two different types?

Why not just get a set of 1600 cas9? It's cheap and you wouldn't have to worry about over clocking it.

I don't think my motherboard can support DDR3-1600, only up to DDR3-1333. But I can overclock it the RAM, so that's why I was wondering.

You could stil buy 1600ish RAM and just use a lower frequency and tighter timings.
The difference ate nubers. For a 1333ish RAM to go for 1400 is nor problem but for 1066 its a bigger step. And you would have looser timings than the 1333er RAM.
Anyway go for 1600 and be happy!
