8320 overclocked or stock i5 3550p - Page 2

Was there anything wrong with the crucial ram I listed? Does the lack of heat spreaders have any impact other than looking cheap?

Ram for easy reference: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148347

The only thing "wrong" with that RAM is that it's only DDR3-1333. Currently, the consensus is that anything below DDR3-1600 CL9 unnecessarily bottlenecks performance.

The cheapest 2x4GB kit of DDR3-1600 CL9 RAM is $53 @ Newegg.

Does it? I can't find anywhere that benchmarked 1333 vs higher freqs. Though 1600 vs 2133 is a less than one fps difference. (everything except F1 for some reason)

I don't really trust team vulcan ram as I have no idea who they are or when they showed up.

One more question. For overclocking on haswell mobos, can I use cheaper mobos now that some of the power delivery is on the cpu? Is that how it works? I am really foggy on that, if someone can explain it I would be very grateful.

The name of the company is Team or Team Group Inc whichever you want to call it. Vulcan is the line... I am using the Xtreem Dark series you can look up reviews and info on the company. A lot of people have not heard of Geil it doesn't mean it is a bad company. Anyways I put the link up there only to sort ram in order of price that was DDR-1600 or faster.

The patriot kit is the same exact price.

As for the speed of the ram... it doesn't really matter for games unless you are using the an APU/Integrated graphics because then the ram is being used as the video card memory as well (which your not). But given the price difference of $3 to get Patriot or Team Group memory that is DDR-1600 over 1333 I would say it is a no brainer.

You could always look for a used kit in the classifieds as well.

As for other applications there can be a measureable difference.

Ah yeah I getcha. I was just wondering if I overlooked something in my pursuit of cheap ram. And yeah your right, it is only 3 bucks more. I'm more comfortable buying from patriot as I have use them in the past so thats what imma do.

Thanks for the help. I'll post once I build the rig and let you all know how it went smile.gif
