CORSAIR 8GB 1600..which one?!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to purchase some RAM for a new M5 board I'm getting to try and milk my AMD 6-core 1035t for all it's worth. These are a couple of sticks that the board will support, but I don't know what the difference is..or which I should get for maximum performance. Can you guys help me out?

RAM option 1:

RAM option 2:
http://www.frys.com/product/6487492?...H:MAIN_RSLT_PG

Any feedback would be very much appreciated, thank you!

Or you could get these, which are the exact same as the second kit (Corsair) but cheaper with the promo code and you don't have to mess around with mail in rebate. Both of these kits are 1.5v rated at the same speed/timings. The Kingston kit is 1.65v for the same speed/timings, so you can definitely rule that one out.

Anything G.skill is usually a good bang for your buck....like this kit here. Nice timings at 7-8-7-24 working at 1600MHz and has 8gb for you to throw around.

There is nothing wrong with 1.65V. Some of the best DDR3 out there requires 1.8-2V (Micron D9 ICs). You need to remember that on AM3 platforms, RAM voltage can pretty much be as high as you want with little IMC degradation effect. 1.65V also works just fine with LGA1155 CPUs, if I'm not mistaken - and I know important people on this site who can confirm that.

The lowest cost 2x4GB DDR3-1600 kit is this Kingston HyperX LE 1.65V kit. I highly suggest you get it. It also comes with a free game. You will also need 1600Mhz to properly overclock and take advantage of the 1035T (due to the locked multiplier) for sure, so might as well ignore suggestions involving 1333 kits.

It works fine... but it's absolutely silly to suggest buying a kit rated for 1.65v over the 1.5v kit, especially considering the 1.5v kit is cheaper.

??? The Kingston kit is $1 cheaper and comes with a free game
I say the difference between 1.65V and 1.5V is absolutely negligible on AM3 platform. As I said, some of the best overclockable DDR3 requires 1.8-2V, which also works on AM3 platform; if this RAM were still available, they would have my suggestion. Since with 1600 CL9, the IC binning is likely far from special either way you go, there will likely be little to no difference with overclockability.

Technically speaking, either way goes.
