Let us know what you pick! I think there are a handful of us wondering on team green or team red.

http://openbenchmarking.org/result/1404052-PL-1404050PL56

I've done a lot of testing (besides this one) to compare and contrast running high and low memory speeds. The above test is done with the CPU at 5ghz (250mhz BCLK results in incorrectly reported 4ghz cpu clock speed). The CPU-NB in all tests was at 2500mhz.

I'ts not really shown there, but in my experience, exceeding the ~1600-1866MT/s speed range has almost no useful impact on performance. As you can see once I get to 2000MT/s the scaling in 1 test comes to a halt. The other 2 are not effected by memory speed/bandwidth. Different RAM kits will have different sweet spots depending on how hard they are being run. For me I get about the same performance in most workloads running 1600-7-8-8 as I do running 2000-10-12-12 or 2133-11-12-12 or 2333-12-14-14. Going to 1866 speeds can actually make it worse, as that's where I am forced to transition to 2T command rate. YMMV.

You can get a lot of performance out of the 8320, you van get at least 4.5 and if you get lucky with the silicon lotto you can push it further as long as you have good cooling! biggrin.gif It's worth the extra money because then you have 8 cores at a higher clock then 6 cores. thumb.gif

Agreed, I've oc'd my 8320 to 4.5Ghz on a CM hyper 212 which is a £25/$40 cooler, you cant go wrong for what your paying for... biggrin.gif
