2x8 CAS 11 vs 4x4 CAS 9? Does it matter?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am building a new rig and the memory is the only parts that I haven't purchased yet..

Here is what I have so far...

1. ASUS P8Z68 V/Pro (Z68 Mobo)
2. Sapphire 7850 (2gb memory)
3. Corsair 750TX PSU

I want to have 16gb memory... I am a web developer and use Photoshop all day long.

I am torn between (2x8) and (4x4) and price is not a contributing factor in my decision.

So... I have been looking on Newegg and see that the 2x8 is a little more cost, but like I said, that doesn't matter...

What does matter is that I see that if I go wit the 2x8 the CAS latency is 10 or 11 vs the 9 on the 4x4 sticks...

So.. in the grand scheme of things, would I notice any performance difference between 4 sticks of CAS 9 vs 2 sticks (2x8) of CAS 10 or 11?

I do plan to overclock a little but not much...

I think I would rather go with the (2x8) choice, but not if the CAS of 10 or 11 is going to degrade my performance.

Suggestions?

Thank you so much!

.."I am a web developer and use Photoshop all day long."...you will be better of getting X79 platform instead of Z68 and 32Gb

Why not Z68 and 32?
