Ram question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
just a quick question on ram for my x79 build asus rampage 4 extreme.

would there be a noticeable difference between:

16gb 1866Mhz Ram in particular corsair's CMP16GX3M4X1866C9

&

16gb 2133Mhz Ram in particular corsair's CMT16GX3M4X2133C9

Not necessarily what i'm gonna go for, as i've had some decent recommendations in other threads, but would like to know the real difference so i can make more of an informed choice, thanks!!!!



P.S. proposed build is in my sig!

in real world use, none.
You would probably be able to downclock the 2133 RAM and run tighter timings, but you still would probably see no difference unless benchmarking.
