Corsair Vengeance (2x4) or G.Skill (4x2) Ram

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Okay guys, my sig rig below is my current set-up.

I currently have 4 x 2gb G.Skill Ripjaws 9-9-9-24-2T 1600mhz memory - I have 2x4gb Corsair Vengeance 1866mhz ram at the moment but am wondering given my current CPU would it be even worth swapping over the ram? I bought my corsair's in prep for Bulldozer.

I don't know. I need input - overclocking potential for my CPU? is it increased with just 2 dimms being used? how do I overclock my 970? I'm totally new to the Crosshair V.

Any advise, performance gains, - what to do with my G.Skill's if I take them out, can I run 2x2 and 2x4 corsair's and have no issues?

Cheers guys!

I would keep your current rip jaws in the system you have now. And save the other RAM for your bulldozer rig.

I'm running Gskill PI's 4x2 1600 Mhz 6-8-6-24 1t at 1700 and I'm able to overclock my 1090t to 4.2 stable. I would try to overclock your 970 with what you got. If you can't get 4.0 you should drop down to 2 sticks and see if that helps. If not than I would go with much better memory than a 9 latency. I have overclocked an I-3 to 4.0 and Ripjaw to 1750 stable. I think you can worth with them.
Hope this helps
