Ram for Folding rig

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

I currently can't decide between:

G.skill Eco (1333mhz cl9 1.35v(

and,

Corsair Vengeance (2000mhz C10 1.5v)

I know the ECO's have a large potential for overclocking, yet the vengeance are already rated at that speed at 1.5v.

Also, would i be better served by 4gb or 8gb of ram, as my folding machine is only going to run Linux...

Thanx in advance,

Ishi

I personally use these in all my folding rigs. 2133mhz, CL9 and cheaper then what you posted. Also 4GB of memory is fine for a dedicated sandy folder (which I assume it is).

Those ECOs are 1600MHz 7-8-7-24, not 1333 CL9.

My ECOs can run at 2133MHz 9-10-9-27 @ 1.55v, so you can OC them quite good. However as long you're not going to have any heatsink clearance issues with the Vengence, I would choose them and save on the hassle of OCing.

4GB is fine as long the rig is just going to be a folding rig.

Depends on the CPU but if your going Sandy Bridge then the higher the speed the better. Timings aren't much of an issue you just want speed. So the corsair kit would be better.

My folding rig does big bigadv and only has 4gb. It is plenty under linux.

Unfortunately, that kit isnt available in australia, even where it available, it would probably be roughly $80

Your correct, i must've been looking at a different model when i posted those timings/clocks.

I think i might go with the ECO's, they look to be a good pair, especially from your numbers, do you have a link to your memory settings so i might mimic them, or close to when i get mine?

Thanks for the input, it will be sandy bridge

+rep to you all, cheers for the help

Gotcha. I'd go with those Eco's then.

By just looking at those 2 sets, I'd say neither!
Because I have notice a lot of problems popping up with Corsairs line of Vengeance memory.

Plus your looking at DDR3-2000, which is totally un-needed for the Sandy, and for Folding I'd think you'd want faster ram than 1333MHz!

For the Sandy, the sweet spot is DDR3-1600
This would be an excellent choice for you!

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231445

These would also be a great choice for you, if you want the Eco series. They're the low voltage to, which is very nice!
G.SKILL ECO 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231404

& here's a great price for 8Gb's of G.Skill's Sniper series (also low voltage)
G.SKILL Sniper Low Voltage Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231461

Ok, those are my suggestions!
I'm also gonna add a link for you to read, about the Sandy Bridge, and choosing memory for it.

Ok, here's that link: http://www.overclock.net/intel-memor...e-h67-p67.html
I think that will help you a lot!

You can't use a ram speed of 2000mhz with SB anyway, it would default to 1866.

A basic guide to OCing them would be for every time you increase the speed (eg from 1600 to 1866), increase the timings by 1. So with that 1600 7-8-7-24 kit, if you want them to run at 1866, set the timing to 8-9-8-24 (7-9-7-24 may also work, it's the CAS timing you have to increase). If you want 2133, then set timings to 9-10-9-27.

For 1866 you will probably be stable with 1.5v, but for 2133 you might need a bit more, possibly 1.55v. You're going to have to play around with the settings a bit to see what works good with your kit.

so i shouldn't need to increase the vccio voltage or anything out of the ordinary with them?
