Newegg's 2133Mhz stock

selling at $44.99 and can reach/exceed 2133 in most cases.
Also, speed is king
on a Intel Sandy/Ivy platform, here is the bench results from a Techpowerup review
of Samsung ULV/Green Ram(HYK0) on a X79 platform:
As you can see Higher speed with Higher latency > Lower speed with Lower Cas Latency
on Intel Sandy/Ivy platforms.
If I were to get banned from buying Samsungs and had to chose 2133Mhz Ram or Cas 8 Ram I'd definitely get the 2133Mhz over Cas8.Edited by sherlock - 10/16/12 at 5:01pm
