Which G.SKILL RAM for i7 2600k?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone!

As the title says.. I will be overclocking hopefully to 5ghz on a Asus p8p67 Deluxe and I need something that will give me the best chance. I will also be buying 2 x kit's for a total of 16gb of RAM.

Here are my options... (I am in Australia and yes it's expensive)

G Skill 8G(2x4G)DDR3 1600Mhz PC3-12800 CL8(F3-12800CL8D-8GB [1] Instock $88.00
G Skill 8G(2x4G) DDR3 1600MHZ PC3-12800 CL9(8GBXL) Instock $89.00
G SKill 8G(2x4G)DDR3 2133Mhz PC3-17000(F3-17000CL11D-8GBXL) [1] PreorderETA $106.50
G Skill 8G(2x4G)DDR3 1600Mhz PC3-12800 CL7(F3-12800CL7D-8GBXH) Instock $129.00
G Skill 8G(2x4G)DDR3 2133Mhz PC3-12800 CL8(F3-17000CL9D-8GBXM) PreorderETA $144.50
G SKill 8G(2x4G)DDR3 2133Mhz PC3-17000(F3-17000CL9D-8GBXL) Outofstock $159.00
G SKill 8G(2x4G)DDR3 2133Mhz PC3-17000(F3-17000CL9D-8GBXLD)
$177.00

Your opinion and why? I am a bit confused about mhz vs latency vs pc3 so if anyone could help me understand this better that would be fantastic thanks!

On a Sandy Ram doesnt affect the OC At all. pick any.

on 775s and 1366 yeh ram is important

All you need to do is ballance: Timing Freq Cost

I think I would go for G Skill 8G(2x4G)DDR3 1600Mhz PC3-12800 CL8(F3-12800CL8D-8GB [1] Instock $88.00

Ok thanks! so now I have more questions....

1. For a video editing machine which RAM would be better?

2. Would faster ram be more beneficial for heavy video rendering etc?

3. Is it worth the cost vs performance?

4. If not why would anyone bother buying high frequency low latency ram?

mhz vs latency??

Thanks!

1. Highest Freq and lowest lat

2. Not noticeably at all

2.5 GPUs can render.

3. Its a lot of money for little performance boost.

4. Freq is good so you want it high/ lat is bad u want it low
