Fastest best overclocking DDR3 right now? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Didn't I read somewhere that both latency and frequency make so little difference that you don't notice it?

Yes, you aren't going to notice the few percent speed increase(at best) that you would get from RAM. That doesn't mean it's not there. It just means you probably shouldn't spend a lot of money to get it, unless you are already spending big money on your system. Some people spend $500 extra on a CPU to gain maybe 5% performance , $1000 on water cooling to gain another 10% over air cooling ... In that case, spending a few bucks more for faster RAM would definitely be worth it.

It takes a pretty big percentage increase in performance before you can "feel" it. You probably wouldn't feel a 20% CPU overclock in most cases if you didn't know it was there, but we are all doing it. smile.gif
