hz vs cell shock 6400

which one is better would the cell shock be too superfluous for my system?


can i pull 800mhz 3-3-3-8 1T outta the hz?

Go with G.Skill. That RAM is impressive and can hit 1100Mhz with 2.35v. Cell Shock is pricey. Cell Shock would, I think perform better than the HZ, but the price cannot be compared with the HZ.

2.35v? Say goodbye to your RAM

I've gone up to 2.45v with my HZs and they're fine.

Some people have used 2.60v with the COMMANDO just to get to CAS 4 and DDR2 1200 and they didn't have an issue.

kanny
whichever is cheaper in Australia is the one that you should get. Both are good kits.

You may not think you are having an issue. But you are going to find that over time you will need more and more voltage to keep your chips running in spec.

Running over 2.30V is dangerous over time. I will not do it as I value my hardware.

I don't believe you can make a generalized statement like this. It's going to be applicable to specific ram modules but not all. I don't believe in the case of HZs and these ShellShocks 2.35 would be too much.

I like Nasgul have ran all the way up to 2.45v had a few tests at 2.5 with 1200MHz 4-4-4-12. I don't run that 24/7 but my memory is rated for 2.2-2.3v so I don't see 2.35v being any kinda of an issue.

Either ram is going to perform great in my opinion and I would just buy which ever is cheaper.

DDR2 is designed to run at 1.8V. The DIMMs are designed to supply power at 1.8V. You increase the amount the memory is taking you are increasing voltage fluctionation and line variation because you are exceeding the design of the DIMMs. I gurantee you that your memory will have a limited lifespan above 2.30V.

I agree,

I run mine at 2.24. I cringe at anything more

DDR2 may be designed around 1.8v but what are the specific memory modules designed around? There are so many different chips out there and sure, if everything was designed to run at the same speed and same timings then you could assume that it was made for 1.8v.

I'm pretty sure that memory manufactures keep this in mind. D9 chips are designed for performance and thus it would make sense for them to be made to use more voltage to reach these performance points. Just my opinion.

What about Team Group...

I got a pair of their Xtreem 6400 4-4-4-9 @ 2.0-2.2V and have a look at their EPP:



I've had them has high as 1090 5-5-4-9 @ 2.2V

I've read far to many D9 death stories to want to put more through them even though my board can give more than 3.0V

I may be tempted to see how fast they will run at 2.3V-2.35V but even with a life-time warranty I'd like to keep these sticks around for awhile.
