16GB PC3 14900 vs PCR 17000

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello guys,

i've already purchased G.Skill PCR 14900 (CAS 9, Timing: 9-10-9-28) and i'm thinking about purchasing the G.Skill PCR 17000 (CAS 11, Timing:11-11-11-30 ) just because it is the faster and is in stock now.

price no object, i wanted to know if you think i should go for the PCR 17000 or stick with the PCR 14900?

PCR 17000

p.s. i need large amount of memory available because this rig is used for music production, vfx, motion graphics and general use.

I doubt you'll notice any performance increase with that upgrade. If money is really no object maybe you could do it anyways and let us all know how it turns out thumb.gif

If you need a large amount of ram and money isn't an issue,you could snag 4 of these CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) and have 32 gigs. If your using the mobo in your sig it supports up to 32 gigs.

stick with what you have ,you won't notice the improvement from 1866 CL9 to 2133 CL11
both kits are XL (if 2133 was XM or XH it would give you better OC potential,don't think you after benching anyway)
