PC4000 or PC3200 G.Skill

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
yes i know another bloody G.Skill ram question but i need to know which one is worth getting for my rig. im not too sure if my mobo supports PC4000 but i read somewhere on here that the ram will run at the highest speed your mobo will let it.

my current ram is PC3200 @420Mhz but i have had it stable at 460Mhz

if i get PC4000 will it oc higher and still be stable??

thanks

I'd get the PC4000 it will allow a higher overhead and a higher and possible more stable OC.

thanks for the quick reply

the PC4000 is CAS 3 with 3-4-4-8 timings so it should be good for oc'ing

doesnt PC4000 run at 500mhz? if so i may be able to run a 2/1.66 divider instead of my 2/1.5 at the moment

Yes, go with the PC4000. It helps a great deal. I got both a higher and more stable OC.

Hey Lasher, I see your eyes recovered, glad you're not blind anymore

EDIT: Yes its stock freq is 500MHz.

Are you looking at 2x512 or 2x1gb sticks? if 2x512 then look at these can go ddr 500 @ 2-2-2-0
GSkill
need 3.4v though, the only draw back, and I'm not sure if board can supply that.

PC4000 will give you more headroom, and give you better stability if you ever want to overclock at all, which you certainly do, maybe get that thing to 3.0 posibly ,

That is some killer ram, except it requires 3.0+v, which his gigabyte mobo cannot provide unlike your DFI....
