Will This Fit?/Is It good? - Page 3

post #21 of 24
Thread Starter 
I never really know what numbers should be high and which should be low when it comes to RAM.

When it comes to the X-X-X-XX timings, is it high or low better?
What about voltage?

Edit:

I see Corsair do 3 different levels of RAM that look the same physically, so as well at the 1333MHz they also do a 1600MHz and a 2000MHz


I found 2 on Scan that are up there, both in price and numbers
Both Corsair, the Vengeance and the Dominator. Can you please take a look and let me know if either of these are any good?

Lower timings are better, lower voltage is better, although generally higher clocked RAM will need more voltage than the same RAM which is clocked lower.

Some people have experienced problems when using 1.65v RAM with Sandy Bridge systems, though, so that's why I'm recommending 1.5v RAM

Well then if both lower timings and voltage is better, what's wrong with the stuff I listed? Just the clock speed?

The Vengeance I listed above has timings of 9-10-9-27 and is 1.5v, plus it's PC3-14900 (1866). Any good?
