yes...usually 1c to 2c hotter because it pushes your cpu alittle harder. =)

The extra bandwidth coupled with the still-low timings at 1600Mhz will win. Go for it.

Agreed, like you said xd, the 1600 is better for overclocking as well? That way it won't hold you back.

Usually, yes; anything below really doesn't scale well in performance, and overclockability (due to the IC's used on most 1333Mhz RAM).

I ordered 2x2GB DDR3 1600 g skill eco @1.35V and 7-8-7-24-2N

I'm hoping that the lower base voltage will allow more flexibility for OC a pII x3 740BE on a M4A89gtd.

In 3 weeks I will order another 4GB

Excellent choice note with the C2 revision x3 740 you may need to raise the DRAM voltage quite a ways above stock 1.35V (i.e. ~1.45-1.5V) to run stable, but that is just fine.

This question has mulled me over a few times.. are we suppose to let our ram run by default on 1333mhz since i5's and i7's are set at that default or do we set it at XMP or manually set timmings only?
post #28 of 28
This is my ram..http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-277-_-Product

I set it as XMP in bios. which occured a mild overclock for me which i didn't expect that lol.

Advice? Love learning new things.
