Need help choosing memory kits

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

So I'm planning what parts I should order for my new Haswell build (4670K/ Gigabyte G1 sniper), and I need some help deciding on the memory kit.

I'll be using an NH D-14, so high profile memory kits won't work. Checked the noctua site for ram compatibility and found the Corsair Vengeance Pro series on there.

Ok so here are the options:

1. DDR3 Corsair Vengeance Pro 8GB (2x4GB) 1600MHz CL9 1.5V

2. DDR3 Corsair Vengeance Pro 8GB (2x4GB) 1866MHz CL9 1.5V

3. DDR3 Corsair Vengeance Pro 8GB (2x4GB) 2133MHz CL11 1.5V

Would there be any benefit from going 1600/1866 CL9 to 2133 CL11?

I do also plan to OC the CPU. Would probably be aiming for 4.5 if possible.

Thanks!

1866C9 and 2133C11 should be close in terms of performance, I would go for whichever of 1866C9-2133C11 is cheaper if you only have three options above.

Hmm, well there are very few options with lower latency than that. And there's only like $4 difference between the 1866 and the 2133. Is CL11 ok? Any big difference vs CL9?
