Which RAM? - Page 2

2. Based on what others have said is it correct to say that I could get the Samsung at least as fast as that G.Skill via overclocking?

1. I seriously doubt it

2. I haven't owned Samsung RAM personally but it seems others have had pretty good luck OCing them.

Between those two, both being C9, yes, you would notice a fairly large difference.

That said, the Samsungs do 1866 at CL9 fairly normally. That and they love their subtimings. Mine ended up dropping low enough to cap my old board lol. Think I got a decent set. 1600 @ 6-7-6-21 and 1333 @ 5-5-5-15 (1333 boots, but still needs a thorough testing). 1.50vDIMM

The only real noticeable difference I've seen is in benchmarks. As far as "real world' I've never noticed a big difference between those speeds. BTW OP what CPU, mobo etc are you going to be using with this RAM? From most of the info I remember reading 1600 seems to be the sweet spot. THis is from the Intel memory section but there are similar posts in the AMD section for those CPUs.

If by benchmarks you mean encoding, compression and related. Sure. I can go with that. 1600 is definitely a good number, and with that said- the difference between 1333 and 1866 would be quite noticible if you do anything RAM intensive. Note: I wasn't talking from a gamers perspective, I don't game all that much tbh.

I'm looking at the ASUS P8Z77-V and an intel i5 3570K.

I am still quite ignorant in terms of RAM and I find myself leaning towards the G.Skill because it seems like less of a hassle. But if someone can say "buy the Samsung, you can get it as fast as that G.Skill", I'm certainly not above learning. I just don't feel like I can make that determination myself because I don't understand the timings and the terminology yet.

Well if you don't want to get too crazy with RAM tweaking (and it can get pretty crazy), then go with the GSkill sticks and OC them a little to get a feel for it. Not trying to be critical, but it seems like you are looking for a blunt answer here. The Gskill sticks in the OP are decent, but their timings are far from special, chances are, even a less-than-perfect set of the Samsung sticks can match them.

What exactly will you be using the PC for? EDIT: you may want to read over this as it helps explain things a little too.:

PC will be used primarily for gaming, however, I do video editing occasionally and some encoding here and there (for example, encoding a tv series so that it will play on my iPad). But the video editing and encoding stuff is definitely secondary to gaming. It happens pretty few and far between. Gaming is the primary purpose.
