If you wanna see for yourself, find a spot in any game that raises your cpu usage high. then drop your 1600 kit speed to 1066mhz and see what happens.
I tested it a lot with witcher 3, youre right , much more fps drop occurs and they were worst. For a example , my 55-56fps drop was 49-50 with 1066 speed instead...
Its not night and day difference , but 1600 is really better.
So finally i sold my h97-plus and 32gb ddr3 1600 for 200$Canadian money and i got a big sale deal so i bought 32gb ddr3 at 2400 mhz cas 11 from Team Dark( i will overclock at cas9 or 10 or 2666mhz) and i bought a MSI Z97 PC MATE. I bought this msi board and the ddr3 team dark memory because it was very cheap vs other hardware choice. So in canadian money it cost me 280$CA( its like 180-190us money) , so for 80$ more im ok with changing my ddr3 memory and im happy to got a z97 board too. I trust msi a lot, i always loved their board and custom videocard.
What do you think of this guys? Is it a good deal, a good upgrade for 80$ ?
I have another question. I checked a lot on the web, i have a 1tb wd black for Windows10 and gaming, and it seem that SDD hard disk only offer faster loading, but no fps gain. Is it true? Otherwise i will buy a cheap one . But i had one with a laptop and i dont care about os loading faster , and programs loading faster. If it cant offer better game performance in fps , i dont want it. BUT if it can help with fps drop or stuttering i will buy one. Thanks for your opinions, its always very appreciated guys Edited by renejr902 - 8/10/16 at 10:02pm
