i have the new corsair vengeance, which of this 2 settings is better for gaming. I can run both at both speed and timing with 1.6V

Honestly you will not see any difference in your fps. The reason is that both these speeds are far beyond the needs in a game.

However for the sake of knowledge, its the CAS timings that will really impact your system. 7-8-7 is a timing that has been discontinued by most RAM manf because it is incredibly fast really not needed, not to mention much more expensive than slower timings. Consequently your 9-10-9 timings are much slower but not enough to make a difference in your games.

The only thing i guess that would influence your decision now would be.

1. If you insist on getting the very best.

Outcome: buy the 1600 one

2. If you wish to overclock by massive amount.

Outcome: buy the 1866 one so you have more overhead to overclock and preserve a fast clock rate.

sorry i didn't make myself clear. I do have the ram, they are 1600mhz at 9-9-9-24 (1.5v). what i meant is that i can acomplish both setting with a little xtra voltage, which one would benefit me since my ram can do both. For all around best perfomance the better timing or faster speed.

You could use AIDA64 or everest and run mem bandwidth test to prove which is faster, but I would go with the 7-8-7 @ 1600. I haven't tested the two myself, but I would bet that the 7-8-7 is a bit faster.

Or you can try max memm. Its pretty popular around here.

With my SB setup I got better results with higher speeds.

I didn't know about that one, glad I looked at this thread.
