Which is better for SB 2600k OC to 4.8Ghz?

Basically 2000Mhz CL9 1.55V or 1600Mhz CL8 1.5V?

Is the 2000Mhz likely to run at CL7 when OC?


Also, FYI, I plan on two of these kits for total 16Gb RAM, yes, overkill, but 8Gb would be tight and that just won't do

Thanks in advance.

Go To This Thread and click on the article in the first post. That should help you decide how fast you want your memory to be for your rig

Has anyone seen any 4 memory stick overclock results with Sandy Bridge? If not, I'd stick with 2. 8gbs is more than enough for anything other than CAD.

You can go here to check out those results for (9) P67 mobos being compared...hope this is helpful to you

Thanks for the advice, but I've already read that article and its not exactly answering my question.

This shows how CL9 compares to CL7 etc, but when OC I want to know what each of these two kits could actually run at. ie. the 2000Mhz kit is CL9, but with a bit of extra clock & volts my understanding (however limited it may be) will run at CL7 for example. My understanding is also that the 1600Mhz kit will have less ability to tighten the timings due to its comparative lack of speed.

So, which of these two would you recommend?

Of the two, I would go with the Ripjaws F3-16000CL9D-8GBRM because there is more info available that makes me feel comfortable to buy. Go back to the link you had provided in your 1st thread and you will be able to click on a couple of reviews. Your question will be answered in those reviews...at least for this particular memory.

As for the Ripjaws-X F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM, try and Google to see if there are any reviews. If not, guess the only way to find out about the cas latency limitation is to buy it and find out for yourself or wait to see if any reviews will be released.

I have 4x4 from your first link.

You can't run memory at 2000 MHz on SB. This specific kit seems to run fine at 1866 at 8-9-8 timings with a small voltage boost. I've not yet been able to get it to run at 2133 at all, but I didn't try to push voltage above 1.70 and I didn't have much time to experiment. I'll have more details in the evening.
