1600/CL7 vs 2000/CL9

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm wondering if I should get the 16GB 1600Mhz/CL7 kit or the 16GB 2000Mhz/CL9 G.Skill kit.

This is for my Sandy Bridge build.

Get the cheaper one. You won't notice any real world difference.

Dont be dumb! get the 2000mhz/CL9, dont care CAS, more DRAM freq is better OC while less CAS does nothing.

The 2000Mhz CL9 one should be cheaper, so buy that and Clock it to 1600Mhz CL7

2000Mhz can support ur PROC to OC higher.

In most cases the ram can work both ways... That is the top model that I've tried.
As for me I'll go for the performance ram. Somehow it always worked out for me.

I only go for 2 brands: Mushkin & Corsair
Other I've got no comment... Get Mushkin!!! Domanitor-GT is overpriced.

O... just checkout e-bay. I'll call it cheap comparing to what I've got to pay for when I build my rig. Again mine needs 3 sticks...

Get one of the below(Prefering the RIDGEBACK):
Play with the timing, if you're lucky & good with OC maybe U could get CL7 or CL8 at 2000Mhz
