1866Mhz or 1600Mhz?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Which will go better with 3570K will it be 1866Mhz or 1600Mhz memory? I do not know much about memory. Ah and if you could say why too I am interested.

To be honest mate you won't notice the difference, the only real reason to go with super fast memory is for benchmarks and scores...

Some 1600mhz @9-9-9-24 is ample for 99.9% of applications and gaming biggrin.gif

Sorry missed the why, between the two which will probably have different timings there isn't much at all. Some AMD chips prefer having faster memory, as in a higher frequency whereas some intel processors prefer tighter timings I.E 1350mhz @ 7-7-7-20 rather than 1600mhz @9-9-9-24.

However, over the years the discussion has been going on about which is better and why, to be honest there isn't really a 100% definitive answer and you can just go with whatever is cheapest... I believe the Samsung memory at the moment is all the rage with great overclocking and cool running.
