Question about the G.Skill Trident 2000Mhz triple Channel memory

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
It is the same price as the 1600Mhz ram on canadacomputers, what gives? I have assumed that the 2000Mhz ram will be better ram, however the 1600Mhz ram seems to have tighter timings which I'm told is a better performance gain over the extra 400Mhz.

So I want to know, if I get the 2000Mhz can I run it at a lower frequency and tighten up the timings like its slower brethren? Or will it's potential tightest timings always be looser than the 1600's tightest timings? (this is assuming a theoretical perfect overclock where everything works together perfect )

You can always underclock the ram and tighten the timing, though its hard to say what timings you could pull at what speed.

I.E, stock 800mhz ram @ 4-4-4 vs stock 1200mhz ram @ 5-5-5

The 1200 ram might do 3-3-3 at 800mhz, or it could not respond well to timings, 4-4-4 might only do 700mhz

There's really no way of knowing what it'll do without looking at similar reviews, etc.

Made up example. Odds are though, if the ram can pull 2000mhz, it should easily tighten the timings when dropping back down to 1600mhz.

I'm also wondering which ram is better, but I don't have much input for you.

As for changing the title, you just have to click edit, and then select "Advance Edit". Your title should then appear.

I'm not sure what Ic the 1600mhz version uses. But the 2000mhz version use elpida BBSE (little brother of the Elpida Hypers [BASE]) chips. And they prove to be quite a value.

Buy the 2,000mhz that way you are covered both ways, overclocking and tight timings. Then it is a win all the way around.
