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

post #31 of 41
True. but with RAM prices rising due to the close release of DDR4 in the next 1-2yrs, I think you should buy 16gb now, and be happy for a few years

So you really only need 4 GB. I'd suggest trying it with just 8 GB and see how it works before spending any money on more RAM..

Yes, and you really only need a 2.0 CPU to fly FSX... what's your point?

I've been using Dragon for years and I can assure you that Nuance's minimum specs are very "optimistic".

My socket's an 1155.
Thanks, Rich

Well your motherboard doesn't support quad channel memory, so do all 4 if you have 4. If you've got an extra stick do 3. Depends on what's available. 2 sticks, 3 sticks, and 4 sticks will all run the same as far as bandwidth / performance on a dual channel mobo, so there will be nothing to worry about except how you'll populate your slots for 32gb. They'll all run at the same clock speed too (The lowest of the batch)

I have nothing against you getting 32GB of RAM -- I have 32GB in my own system. But don't do it for Dragon 12 Premium, the entire Dragon on-disk vocal cache is only 3GB in size, and Dragon recommends 4GB RAM for an x64 installation. You can certainly put more RAM in there, but Dragon's not going to use it ... at all.

It does not matter if you use 4x4GB or 2x8GB DIMMs. As long as you have an even number (2 or 4) your board will operate in Dual Channel mode.

The speed does matter, somewhat. DDR3-1600 is always going to be faster than DDR3-1333, unless there is a HUGE difference in CAS settings (e.g. CL11 1600 is slower than CL7 1333, but not by much!). My recommendation is keep what you have now, and get 2 more modules. They don't have to be the same size, either -- you can mix 2x4GB and 2x8GB modules and end up with 24GB of RAM, which is a perfectly acceptable amount.

Another example, you only need a 2007 Dual Core and a X1950 for GTA IV, even though people with a 3930k and Titans sometimes struggle tongue.gif

Rgarding the CL11 1600MHz Magic RAM, I assumed he would overclock it, as those things hit 1600MHz CL7

Thanks Greg, I have no idea what you're basing that on but I use DNS a lot and I have to do research simultaneously. Many of the people I deal with who also do this have at least 16GB and I'm here today to get some idea of how RAM will perform in some various configurations.

That means having a lot of different web pages open, word and publisher docs, etc. Yes, I need more ram and though I can start spending all kinds of money on other things that would help even more, the RAM is quicker, cheaper, and easier.

I'm not asking if I should buy more Ram, (it seems some think I am), I know I'm getting more RAM. The question is which RAM and best config for the mobo.
I'll stick with the 32 gb RAM.
Thanks again, R

Though I wasn't planning to O/C the ram, from what I've been told about this Samsung RAM, it clocks fast very easily, (I think the voltage is 1.37 or 1.35), so if that's the case, I probably will. But as I said before, speed is not a big player here, quantity is however.
Thanks again, Pedro. I'll hit your REP's:thumb: and some of the other post answers helped as well so I'l kudos those too.
