DDR3 question.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Heya guys! Since I don't know anything about CL-RCD-RP-RAS and bla bla I'm here to ask you guys about what should I aim for my new rig? 1600? 2000? ( i7 2600k + still deciding on which mobo )

I'm looking for extreme performance memos.


ps: Didn't found any mushkins in Japan =[


Thanks !

very very little difference between 1600, 1800, and 2000 as far as I know when it comes to real life use.

What is your purpose? Gaming? Overclocking? Benchmarking?

Gaming, overclocking and benchmarking.

What you tell me about CL-RCD-RP-RAS? I wanted to know what to look for. For the best results.

Gaming doesn't see a whole lot of benefit from great memory, benchmarking is where you see the difference in memory more.
Generally the highest frequency you can run with the timings as tight as you can get them will give the best results. Most of the higher frequency memory you can buy new these days will have PSC ICs on the modules, the tRCD is usually 1 or 2 higher than the CL & tRP, (ex. 7-9-7 24, or 9-11-9 27). They are great for overclocking the frequency, the timings can also be tightened but the tRCD will generally have to be left a couple clocks higher than the CL & tRP.
You can still find used kits with elpida hyper ICs where the tRCD can run the same clocks as the CL & tRP, although they don't like a lot of sandy bridge motherboards & it can be tough to run higher frequencies. I'd like to get an asus p67 M4E just to run my memory, it's the only b3 revision board I've seen screenshots of where people can run 2133Mhz + with great timings on hypers.

Thanks alot for the explanation.
So as you said: 8-8-8 or 9-9-9 isnt that good to run at higher freqs right?

I was just able to find 8-8-8-24 , 9-9-9-24 and 8-9-8-24 around. ( Vengeance, Dominator, XMS3, Patriot )

Man =[ Theres too many of em... I can't choose! lol
