Memory - worth upgrading?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
So, hey guys.

My specs are on my signature, as you can see i have 2x4 Gb DDR3 1333 @ 9-9-9-24 and i was checking the store and i saw the Corsair Vengeance 1600 @ 9-9-9-24, for a fair price.

Do you guys think it is worth to upgrade?

If it is worth it, should i get 2x4 or 4x4 kit?

I don't really understand about memory frequency/timings, but since both are running at 9-9-9-24 would that be a great performance increase or not at all?

Just to remind that i did OC my CPU from 3.4 to 4.5, and i'm running my current memories on 1600 9-9-9-24 from 1333 9-9-9-24, but like i said before i'm no expert in this matter, i only tested the overclock with stress test and no crashes so far.

Sugestions please

I would have a look at the low voltage RipJaw X ram, with a voltage bump you could tighten the times on them.

1600MHz is the sweet spot price/ performance, but I would get 1866 or faster.

And to test your ram overclock run memtest 86+

1. Memory performance doesn't scale.
toms

2. You really can't see the difference anyways

Get an SSD. Even if its just for caching.

I don't have so many options here in my country (Brazil), so i would like to know about that particular model that i said before.

I also found the G.skill Sniper 1866 @ 9-10-9-28 8gb kit, for almost the same cost of the 16gb kit 1600 @ 9-9-9-24.

Worth it?

And like i said, will that be a huge upgrade from 1333 9-9-9-24 (Running 1600 9-9-9-24)?

No lol only load times, maybe games like wow though...I heard that an ssdd helps with it. If you want just get a second 580.

Thanks, i just wanted to know if i would get any worthy improvements, but since the answer is no, i'll check SSD prices around here.

Looking to get a 2nd GTX 580 soon but the prices here are really high.

Thanks!
