What would you buy? 1600 MHz CL7 VS 2000 MHz CL9

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Now that we are clear on the Domminator uber performance myth, which RAM would you choose for 990FX?

I know there is no improvement of bandwidth in AMD system over 1333 MHz, so i would set both RAM to 1333 MHz and try to lower the timings. In that case, you think 1600 MHz CL7 is better than 2000 MHz CL9?

Care to argumnet why you think one is better over another? And perhaps any experiences with these RAM?

As far as system performance goes lower latencies mean almost nothing with the higher frequencies of DDR3. The higher the frequency the shorter time increment one cycle is in real time. The RAM isn't a bottleneck in the system.

In the case between these two kits,I would say it is entirely dependent upon the system in which they would be used.For instance,if I was using a Bulldozer CPU,I would lean towards the 2000MHz kit.If I was using an Athlon CPU,I would lean towards the 1600MHz kit.It is also possible they are the exact same kit in reality.

Doesn't matter, both would achieve the same bandwidth results in MaxxMem (while the 1600 CL7 kit would win in latency results). 1600 CL7 performance is near equivalent with 2000 CL9-10 on AMD platform.
