No B.S., best possible RAM for 1090T on Crosshair IV Extreme - Page 6

So you'd forgo stability and just so you could fill all 4 dimm slots with "hyper" ram - talk about cut of your nose to spite your face

The low latency "hyper" ram is just as expensive.

And although the top shelf "hyper" ram may technically perform "better" - you're talking a performance difference of less then 1%, and most of the time, a difference of approx 0.3% - POINT THREE PERCENT









And to show the Flares can be just as good when used for overclocking:

By going with the ram you suggested he might as well keep his eco's and not spend any money. Obviously, overclocking is important to him just as much as the capacity. The hypers offer him a ton more flexibility in meeting his criteria. If he buys what you suggest he's still stuck with some pretty underwhelming ram clocks, which will have him pretty much in the same scenario he's in now.

Performance can be measured in a lot more ways than actual per clock efficiency. It's a fact that AMD's current CPU's benefit greatly from better ic quality. Better IC's not only give you the ability to optimize core clock efficiency, but it also helps gain more clock freq. in both the core and nb. I've overclocked a ton of AMD rigs to understand that IC selection is paramount.

OP is looking for 8GB of the ..."best possible RAM for [the] 1090T on [the] Crosshair IV Extreme" with the caveat that there is an unlimited budget. The answer is four sticks of Corsair CMGTX2 (Hyper MGH-E IC), or four sticks of STT/ADATA/Others using the Hyper MGH-E IC.

This is actually VERY easy to hit on hypers with a 1090T.

My bad - didn't realise Madshrimp do that lol. Images are working now, I just needed to link the review

Anyhoo, Madshrimp did a comparison review of G.Skill Flare's to Corsair Dominator GTX 2 "Hypers"...

...and the results are definitely not as some of the ppl are making out in this thread. As I said, 0.3% on average is a very marginal performance difference

If anything, that article only confirms what was said above . Good to know that the CIV Extreme is optimized for certain PSC modules. Next year should bring even sweeter stuff..

i hope they did not leave all the sub timings to auto, the gtx2 sticks have pretty slack sub timing programed into them so they can do 2250+mhz.
