Best Ram For A Gigabyte A75/ A8 Llano build

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Looking for the best ram for a Gigabyte A75 / A8 Llano build, price really isn't an issue just looking for the best performer. Going to crossfire the build with a 6670. From what i understand the ram is what is going to make this system shine so looking for some great products.

Thanks for any info.

This ram should suffice. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231455
Apparently, higher than 1866 MHz RAM nets you lower and lower returns, according to:http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...no,2975-6.html

This cheaper RAM ($20 less and rated 1600Mhz with a moderately low 8-8-8 timings) will provide the same performance as that 1866 kit
It is higher than 1600Mhz where scaling slows down or stops on the AMD APU, the issue is similar on AM3 platform; you may be able to increase the IMC to better leverage the 1866Mhz by increasing the northbridge clock as with the Phenom II platform, but I'm not sure if that is how it works anymore on this platform. As the 1866 kit suggested has higher timings, it may not provide any more performance over a 1600 CL8 kit. If you can find a RAM kit that does 1866Mhz at better/lower timings, then you may have a winner.
