Help 800mhz ram vs 1066mhz ram - Page 2

post #11 of 12
There is a lot of science behind RAM, as you can see from the above posters, but the truth is, the core architecture with it's off chip memory controller is really inefficient with memory.

Quite simply, RAM speed hardly makes a difference with Core2s, just get something cheap, reliable, and at least 800/4-4-4-12, the rest doesn't matter.

More interesting are the results of the overclocked platform. In this case, there is more sense in using fast memory and the optimal memory frequency divisor is 1:1 (FSBRAM) as has been shown in our tests. In other words, you can achieve maximum performance by using memory with lowest possible timings in synchronous mode. It means that if you overclock the FSB to 400MHz, DDR2-800 SDRAM with low timings is the optimal choice. If the FSB is overclocked more, DDR2-1000 or DDR2-1067 SDRAM is the best option. An additional argument in favor of using memory and the FSB in synchronous mode at overclocking is that the 1:1 divisor is the most stable one on a majority of mainboards.
