RAM questions - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thats what I was saying. On Sandy Bridge, you overclock by upping your cpu multiplier. This allows you to overclock your cpu, and leave your RAM set to a different multiplier. If you don't understand this, don't worry. You will have to learn about it before overclocking your new system.

My advice still stands though; go slow with low CAS latency over fast with high CAS latency for better performance. Fast with low CAS latency is best, but you pay a big premium.

May want to hold off on a cooler. People have been reporting excellent temperatures with stock cooling. It all depends how extreme an overclock you are trying to get.

As a general rule, you can only bump your thread once per day. I don't care if you do this, but a mod might warn you because of the constant bumping.

Just to let you know it's an i7 2600K not an 2006k. If you already knew that, then good, I don't want you to be confused with the name.

With Sandy Bridge, you don't overclock with the FSB/blk like with the 1156/1356 platforms. You simply just raise the multipler like what others have said. So it will be 100 x [RAM multiplier] the higher you set the multiplier, the higher the RAM speed will go, but when you increase the speed, you have to increase or "loosen" the timings. Since you don't seem to know much about RAM or overclocking in general, I suggest you get a speed you like and stick with the stock settings for a while until you read up some more. Try for 1600mhz CAS9 or even 1333mhz CAS 9 RAM if you're more into saving money.

Edit: Even after overclocking my RAM between 1333 CAS6~1752 CAS7, I haven't noticed a difference in anything aside from benchmarks, so you might want to just stick to stock speeds.

1) SB only supports Dual channel memory
2)There wouldn't be a noticeable difference between 1333mhz-2000mhz if you're only doing casual applications and gaming.
3)The D-14 is a really big and heavy heatsink, so make sure your case can support it. I would go towards the H70 or even a H50 with two cheap fans (like Yate Loons). But if you insist on the D-14, get low-profile heatsinked RAM like Mushkin.

My big question to you is what will you be using this rig for? The SB platform is pretty cool already, so you don't need the best of the best for cooling and what will you need 16GB of RAM for?

thanks, that cleared it up by abit. Not sure what you meant by slow and low latency. Slow as in MHz speed? CAS low latency... I don't know. I'm guessing timings? I'll have to google them up.

Yeah, I'm getting 4 x 4gb 1333mhz sticks. For multi-tasking purposes.

Oh, I'll be using Noctua D-14 for the i7 2006 processor. I'd like to reach at least 4.50gHZ stable 24/7

Sorry for the bumps, I'm kinda in a hurry... I have 2 days left before I can order new parts.

By lower speed it means mhz and low latency = timings so for example, lower speed: 1333mhz and low latency as in lower timings: 7-7-7-20 vs 9-9-9-24.

You probably won't need the D-14 for reaching 4.5ghz, I've seen others get 4.5ghz with even the CM Hyper 212+ budget cooler...

See this thread for i7 2600k users with different coolers: Linky

no, it won't be casual. I intend to run heavy applications 24/7. So, does this mean that I will have slow speeds..?

I was gonna go for H70 with the 4x4gb 1600mhz Corsair Vengeance sticks, but the D-14 outperforms the H70, D14 is quiter and cheaper. So I'm going for the d14 with 1333mz sticks. (The 1600mhz vengeance sticks won't fit with the d14 due to the heatspeaders. and no these heatspreaders can't be removed.

Um, why muskins ram...? what's the difference between these and the 1333mhz corsair sticks?.... Why can't I use an external cooler for the nonheatspreaders RAM sticks? Like Antec Spot Cool.
Oh, a certain person from HF recommended me not to use 1.6V RAM sticks. Muskin uses 1.6V.

....

My case is gonna be HAF 932, so the D-14 should fit as well
