Yeah, well thanks for your help. I appreciate it and have decided on the 1600Mhz ones.

Though, another question. I know the 1600's are better binned, but would it affect my overclocking if I got 2x4GB 1333Mhz Ripjaws instead? The whole luck of the draw with better binning, and the like, having to underclock my RAMs, or it no longer works that way with Sandy Bridge? I'm used to overclocking FSB, not BCLK or Multiplier. Haha.

I think most Ripjaw DDR3-1600 9-9-9 1.5V can hit DDR3-1866 9-10(11)-9 1.5V. You could also probably do 1600-8-9-8 or better.

I know my Vengeance 1600 9-9-9 1.5V can hit 1866 9-11-9 1.5V.


1333's could probably do 1600 with slightly higher timings.

With that in mind, I understand that the more expensive ones (1600's are more expensive than 1333's here by $10) are indeed better binned chips. Alright, sounds good to me, I'm set on the 1600 CL7's. Thanks alot.

Great way to spend money =)
Your recommendation: 1333 9-9-9-24 ($45)
My recommendation: 2133 9-11-9-28 ($75)

60% - Ha, you mean $30?! For only $30 more there's going to be a considerable difference between those two. I guess if you're building this system for Grandma, sure, save the $30...

Yes, 60%. Yes, $30.

$30 buys you ~3% performance increase in CPU intense apps and less than 1% in games.

If it makes you happy, who cares.

I would personally put that $30 towards something that would make a real difference.

Low timings have its place but it's overhyped. Low timings provide minimal gains. Take some time & read this to make your memory selection...The Best Memory for Sandy Bridge

EDIT: Didn't realized somebody had posted this article...very good

It looked more like 4-10% in most of the benchmarks in the bit-tech article

Maybe I'm missing something, but I read:


1600 CL9 vs 1600 CL7:
  • Cinebench: +0.56%
  • Gimp: -0.07%
  • Handbrake: +0.62%
  • Multitask: +5.96%
  • Crysis: +0.45%
  • Civ: +0%
On average, the 1600 CL7 is 1.25% faster than the 1600 CL9


1600 CL9 vs 2133 CL9:
  • Cinebench: -0.46%
  • Gimp: -0.36%
  • Handbrake: +1.85%
  • Multitask: +7.81%
  • Crysis: +1.13%
  • Civ: +0%
On average, the 2133 CL9 is 1.78% faster than the 1600 CL9


Pricing (via newegg):


If you really want to pay 30-50% more money for less than 2% of a performance increase, then to each his own. Granted, it's only $15-25 more, but I believe you would be better off putting that extra money towards something that would make a real difference. Just trying to save someone from buying something that they'll never notice a difference in.

My testing:

1853MHz @ 9-10-9-27 vs 1475 @ 6-8-6-20... The 1475 settings were slightly faster in MaxxMem and Everest bench...

SO higher MHz & lower cas is the ideal....
