ddr3 1600 vs ddr3 2000 - Page 2

post #11 of 17
i have 4GB A-Data DDR3 2000's running 1602 24/7 on my i5
i have 4GB Mushkin DDR3 2000's running 1744 + for benching on my i7
i have seen ton's of 1600mhz memory go way beyond 2000+ with no problem.
unless your doing synthetic benchmarks, save the money and get 1600..

CMT6GX3M3A1600C7 can run at the same setting as CMT6GX3MA2000C8

Go for the 2000mhz, I got Team Xtreem CL9 2000Mhz stock @ 6-8-6 timings with 1687Mhz chirping @ 1.5v.

Saves power and you have the head room (ram wise) to go further

[EDIT] And 30 bucks cheaper, its a dead give away

The 1366 Socket i7's have a hard time with high clocked ram. You're better off with tighter timings.

Get the lowest timing ram you can get in your price range.

Also note, there's no significant difference in RAM performance going from 1600 to 2000. You're looking at MAYBE 2fps in games.

the 2000mhz is cheaper with about the exact same timings

You might also find that the 2000mhz Ram can be at the same clocks as the 1600 but with way tighter timings.

SubTopic of i7 950's Internal Memory Controller being bad:

I don't know why a lot of people are saying the 950s are bad, most of the information I've read from owners here on Overclock.net seem to have great luck with them in general.

EDIT: This is the third time I've seen reference to "Bad IMC's on 950's". Is there anything out there to make that statement plausible? Is there a benchmark tool to check it? I'm just skeptical other than "Well my personal experience has shown..etc"

Thanks in advance
I posted this in another thread about why people were saying that the IMC is bad in them. No one responded to me there. So I'm asking here, why are people saying this? Do they have any type of measuring tools to make this statement correct?

Also on the discussion of hitting 4.2 Ghz with a 950 and most likely having water to cool that:
This Club has almost 1/2 of it's members over 4.2 Ghz on 950's. I doubt they all had to use water to get that speed.

On Main Topic:
Here is a great article written over the subject of i7's, triple channel ram and speed differences.

I hope that helps and I hope I get a better understanding about this "Bad IMC" information that is being said throughout the forums.
