3820 build

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
i plan on getting an i7 8320 and a z79 ud3 board.

want to overclock to around 4.5ghz with the best memory bandwidth i can get.

should i be shopping for 2133mhz or 1866mhz or 1600mhz mems?

what do you all think of these?

made to be compatible. Just used the g.skill memory finder

and you could just get 1600 one for 90 for 4x4 or the above are $140 for the 2133

thanks,

so you think 2133 is the way to go?

the cost difference doesn't bother me if the bandwidth is noticeably better.

Definitely worth the 2133 and these are the two to go with:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=600006073&IsNodeId=1&Description=ripjaws%20z%202133&name=16GB%20%284%20x%204GB%29&Order=BESTMATCH

The blue/black ones have a cas latency of 9 and the first one I linked have a cas latency of 11. SO ignore the first ones and go with the CL 9 ones. If cost isn't a huge factor then run with the ones that are $160. They would overclock better and might be able to tighten the timings or tweak better.

By "Blown away from the performance increase" What are some examples that you can see with the improved performance? For instance gaming, windows speed, bootup etc etc etc... biggrin.gif Thanks

i mean all round performance gaming for definate alot more fps and alot smoother even compared to fx-8150 which i thought was great plus heaven benchmark and passmark has got a way lots better performance scores its just better quality all round you can feel the quality in everything you do with it amd has alot of catching up to do this is my first time with intel and i wont be going back to amd i know i have upgraded this time and it was worth it as before when i got the fx-8150 there was no real performance increases in benchmarks and gaming but the 3820 is a bulldozer in my opinion lol
post #8 of 8
did someone suggest the Samsung 30nm RAMs Op if you want Performance for the Price the best are these
SAMSUNG 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 47.99$ Shipped get two of them and the total will be 95.98$ shipped and Have a look HERE on its performance and then comment thumb.gif
here are some other reviews Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
540
TechPowerUP Review
add something like
Cheapest to expensive
Ultra Technology TherMax T3 Aluminum Ram Memory Cooler 7.99$ recommend fr air cooling as its low in height thumb.gif
XIGMATEK dragoon-n422 Aluminum alloy HDT family cooler for RAM module 27.99$+2.99$ shipping
and if you are planing or already watercooled then
Koolance RAM-33 $34.99
this may settle both the looks and the performance in your budget thumb.gif
but if you are interested in looks and other features then
Team 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 153.99$ Shipped
Reason y i suggested this
its CL9 @ 1.5v so you have some Voltage headroom in case you want to tighten the timing
Hope that helped thumb.gif
*edit*
here is a Review of the Team Group RAMs
