Or is it really pointless to debate because the performance gained or lost is pretty much insignificant/not worth dealing with? Maybe it's best this this be the case for everyone's sake
Thanks for the catch TriBeCa.
Basically, I like the lower BCLK because I can run 1760 6-6-6 18 on my memory whereas with 200 BCLK, I have to do 1600 6-6-6 18 or 2000 7-7-7 21. 2000MHz takes more QPI/VTT voltage than I'd like to run 24/7, so the 176 BCLK is the best combination for my equipment.
Smokiez, sometimes lowering the BCLK but raising multipliers can get you into the sweet spot, as it has with mine.
