8GB 1600 C9 versus 2400 C10 for Haswell gaming PC? - Page 3

Between these two kits, which would be the better option? The team Vulcan is ~ $12 cheaper with rebates and runs at 1.5v, but the G.Skill has a higher base clock with low timings at 1.65v.

Team Vulcan 8GB 1600 CL9 ($59.99):

G.Skill Ripjaws X 8GB 2133 CL9 ($71.99):

Thanks. While 2133 CL9 is tempting, I will probably end up getting G.Skill Ares 1866 CL9 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231550) because they run at the Intel recommended voltage of 1.5v...better safe than sorry! biggrin.gif

Well on Ivy you'll be fine, really fine. Not on sandy.

High performance RAM can be used at 1.65V in any system. It is up to the user to enable the performance values. Memory may be rated for DDR3-2133, DDR3-2400, and higher at 1.65V, but they can still be used at 1.50V, 1.550V, and such low voltages. The frequency and timings would be up to you to see what the specific RAM kit is capable of. Generally, a higher frequency kit will use better chips, so for example if you compare DDR3-1866 CL10 1.50V and DDR3-2400 CL10 1.65V, the designed voltage may be higher, but technically you can use the RAM at DDR3-1866 CL8 or CL9 1.50V. Ram is very flexible, so you don't have to worry much about voltage. It is difficult to cause voltage damage unless you try to raise everything very high for no reason. biggrin.gif

Cheers

Thanks for the information. I decided to go with the 1866 G.Skill Ares kit for its low-profile heat-spreaders and (relatively) low price.
