Thinking about new RAM, collecting opinions. - Page 2

1333 CL9 is the low end of the low end; going higher can make up to 1 GB/s difference, enough to suitably affect application load times and boot times (remember, pretty much everything's loaded onto memory ). There are also a few certain scenarios where it may help a bit more than you'd think, i.e. video encoding (extra bandwidth), and online gaming (lower overall latency/ping)

That's more along the lines of an answer I was looking for, thank you. =]
Only problem is, my internet is horrible.






So it's not worth the Ram upgrade since I don't do all that much video encoding?

High speed, low timings. Kick ass RAM. Black and blue color scheme. Within your budget. What more can you ask for?

Compatibility says P55 Chipsets.
Would this be stable on my AMD chipset?

Yes.
P55 compatibility thing = marketing scam. The RAM will work on AMD just the same and just fine.
But I recommend getting the Ripjaws 7-8-7 over those, they will reach the same 6-8-6 timings (pretty much have done so for every user I know) for cheaper.

What ever you do DO NOT buy OCZ they are going out of the DRAM market http://www.bit-tech.net/news/hardwar...-dram-market/1

I'd really like to use the same Ram for my Bulldozer build, but that won't be here for a few more months. Perhaps it would just be better to buy Ram then.
In the same bucket ur in till this evening and I bought an XMS3 1600 cl9 Corsair 1x4gb kit cheapo today

Have currently 2x2gb G.Skill 1333cl9 value 1.5V(AC RC pro cooling)
and 1x4gb Corsair 1600cl9 XMS3 1.65V

Im running all the dimms at 1600cl9 STABLE Occt 5 hours and memtest ( memtest ongoing) 4 hours so far. and at 1.605V beat that. I bet they have more headroom, will look into it tomoro.

Get rid of your current ram and go in for something faster/ hold off till 2K MHz ram becomes more readily available and , of course, cheaper. Invest then.

BTW, the XMS3 ( depending on revision of course, Google the corsair forums) if pretty compatible all over the place, but the higher than JDEC timings are manual of course. Should work w/ ur setup w/ no problems.
And they cost 49 a pop on newegg

GSkills/. well. I got amazing perf out of their value ram ! 1600vs1333 Hz stock timings going from 1.5->1.6V !!!
GKills is typically a bit more xp, and ur better off handpicking your ram instore rather than online.

0razor1: Sounds good, though with that 1x4GB stick you may in fact be experiencing a big performance loss. Why? the 1x4GB is making it impossible for your system to run dual channel. And what does dual channel vs. single channel make a difference in? Oh right, pretty much everything. Boot times, web browsing, snappiness, some video rendering apps... the difference may not be very big at times but it is certainly in fact noticeable. I would suggest you remove that 1x4 Corsair and consider spending on another good 2x2 1600 CL9 ~1.65 kit.

AM currently relaxing timings but running at 1600... still, here's CPU-z in attachments, and prior to that, stable 1600 cl9 in maxxmem, again, attached.
Please have a look. Something doesn't quite fit.

Can I possibly be running dual channel with 3 sticks on an amd platform :

Included is also my old maxxmemm scores.

SOrry for the gfx corruption
