4 x 8 Cas10 or 4 x 4 Cas 9? - Page 2

post #11 of 41
1. Does it make a difference whether I'm using four sticks at 4 GB each, or two sticks at 8 GB each?

You're using a dual channel motherboard, so you'll want at least 2 modules installed. The main and most important difference is that with 2 8GB modules, it leaves option for upgrade open.

2. Which is better? Four sticks at a speed of 1300 MHz each, or two sticks at a speed of 1600 MHz each?

Two sticks of DDR3-1600, unless you have a quad channel motherboard, filling all slots will not make a difference besides producing more stress for the CPU memory controller.

Cheers

Thank me later, unfortuantly, it only comes in 2x4gb, so 32gb is impossible without going to a X79 platform, im sorry frown.gif

Sooo, you're saying that I should actually keep away from using 4 sticks?

Thanks PedroC999, I came up on that just before you posted. It appears that I would be spending about $220 + Shipping on that deal but at the momment, that still may be the least I can get away with.

Hey Timsyourfriend, you said "You're using a dual channel motherboard, so you'll want at least 2 modules installed. The main and most important difference is that with 2 8GB modules, it leaves option for upgrade open"blinksmiley.gif

And then you said 4 sticks would stress the CPU... So I'm not sure what to think there. I mean, if I want room to upgrade, (or potential), then where would I put the upgrade additions if not in the other two slots?

Oh wait, I didn't read that last part about the X79 patform. Is this related to those particular sticks or am I screwed when it comes to ANY 4 x 8 RAM setup?

Sorry my mistake, I somewhat assumed you only had two RAM slots doh.gif

where were we? Ok, if you buy the Magic RAM I linked, that will give you only 16gb, as they dont make 8gb models if I remember correctly, so its either 16gb of very high quality RAM or 32gb of some inferior RAM, that will be more expensive and taller
