Sandy Bridge: DDR3 1600 OR DDR3 2133 - Page 2

post #11 of 23
Tough call actually - both of those have really good specs and you won't go wrong either way. I would probably go with the 1600 since the spec'd voltage is lower at 1.6v. If it weren't for that and the ugly red color of the 2133 set, I would proabably get the 2133 with hopes of being able to drop timings to CAS8. If it matters to you, the 2133MHz memory ought to give you much better benchmarking scores.

Be sure to read this article: Bit-Tech: Best Memory for Sandy Bridge and look at the graph titled: Overall Score. That ought to give you an idea of just how little difference it makes. With that said, choosing by color would be perfectly reasonable to.

Yeah, the red ram doesnt seems okay for the p8p67 deluxe mobo that is pretty much blue...

OUT OF STOCK...

It would be better if I could buy the ram in newegg, and the reason why I have not chosen a 2200 RAM is because in ASUS.com

http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=FpufhQASBFHNvccl&templete=2

* Due to CPU behavior, DDR3 2200/2000/1800 MHz memory module will run at DDR3 2133/1866/1600 MHz frequency as default.

Go with the 1600. Those 2133 timing look horrible

Well, I guess will go with the 1600 RAM.

Really good article here

That second kit listed is the best memory you will be able to buy new, although I've heard that at least 1 p67 mobo doesn't like super talent memory, others have had no issues.

It's a good guide for price vs. performance, in everyday tasks you wouldn't notice the differences of faster/higher performance memory, it only really shines in benchmarks.

This look better voltage and timming wise same 1600. I am looking into these if I decide to go with a SB build http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231444 so I share, anyone out there using them?
