Run Twinx1024-3200XLPT With Dividers or get Mushkin Redline (PC4000) to Reach 3.0GHz?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
If I run my Corsair Twinx1024-3200xlpt with dividers, say

249 mhz at 150 divider or
220 mhz at 133 divider

How much of a performance hit will that entail? Negligible, Moderate, Significant or Huge? (Or some other description)

Would it be better to bite the bullet and get 2gbs of Mushkin Redline so I can run at 1:1?

(Although I would hate to spend $300 on outdated DDR1..... am just overclocking this rig for fun while waiting for K8L to debut in July, and will have new proc, mobo and ram expense to deal with then, on rather, a few months later when the designs, drivers and prices have all stablized somewhat.)

What do ya all think?

If there is a significant price difference, then go for the Corsair. It's cheaper, and you can put it on a divider. Just because it's rated at running at PC3200 doesnt mean you cant push it further.

Try and save as much money as you can for your new system.
