Is 2133 ram worth it's price?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I just switched to intel. Got a 3570k oc to 3.8 on a z77 . I currently have 8gb of 1600 ram and am wondering if upgrading to 16gb of 2133 ram is worth it

Well are you gonna be adding more ram sticks? If so then when you upgrade you'll still be running at 1600mhz.

I wanna replace it not add. Just get two 8Gb sticks of 2133 but it's like 170 for that as opposed to like 100 for more of the 1600

Check these benches
BIT-TECH
ANAND

Quite minute in performance difference in benches IMHO. But if you really want a higher clocked DIMMs..

As Schmuckley said.. I'm also using those sticks! If you're not worried about aesthetics, that is the best ram to get when it comes to price/performance.

My DIMMs are imported as I was unable to find these here locally, and they are definitely worth it.

Don't mind my very conservative OC of my rams though redface.gif

there are some very nice 2133 memory sets out there right now (unlike 6 months back ) and decent timings ..with today's desktop memory prices there is no reason- not to buy high performance RAM especially if you have i7 Ivy Bridge CPU ,now.... can you see the difference between 1600 and 2133 ?...it's more about the overall feel and responsiveness of your system ,high frequency RAM comes to play @ higher clocks ,here is very nice article that shown the benefits of running higher OC combined with high frequency RAM on SB chips ,so if you won't OC much ,you may as well stick with what you have
