DDR 3 Ram for new P67 Build

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I was just wondering what ram would better serve me in a new build with an i7 2600k.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820233147
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820233142

I am not sure if there are any difference between the two above but I believe I have heard of some people obtaining the speeds from the second link on the first link with tighter timings.

Or something like
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820226184
which runs at 1.35 volts?

Any other input of different modules would be greatly appreciated.

The board the modules will be used on will be a gigabyte p67a ud-5

The first 2 have a little bit different speed and timings. But I would think either one could run at either speed. I would probably go with the 1866 because you should be guaranteed to hit that.

The Mushkins are the slowest of the 3. The low voltage doesn't help much. Honestly will you notice a difference between any of them in pretty much everything besides benchmarks. Probably not.

I think if you bench the first 2 you would probably get about the same performance.

Would this set http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231435
be more beneficial than the corsairs? Will the corsairs even come close to this speed with similar timings?

Do you really need RAM with that high speed. I mean, you could just get a vengeance or ripjaw 1600MHz kit and OC it to 1866?

I could be mistaken, but I think people are having trouble running 2133 on P67 boards in general. I would probably just go with the 1866 CL9 you listed above. That's probably the best deal for quality ram on Newegg right now. Then again, perhaps that $199 set could run at 1866 CL8, but then you're spending $70 more just to go from CL9 to CL8 - not really worth it.

Go for the corsair and save yourself some cash. The 1866 kit will be perfectly fine for you.

Yeah, but an 1866 kit is easier to OC to 2133 with decent timings & so on...

Really all depends what the OP wants the rig for & how much he wants to spend. For benching better ram is always good, for gaming 2133 - 1600Mhz doesn't make much difference, if he likes to tinker with memory speeds & timings a good kit that can do it all is handy.
Of course there is also the enthusiast thing, some guys like to have the best they can get whether it will be used to full potential or not.

I appreciate all the info, and I am looking forward to learning how to overclock with the ud-5. It certainly has come along way since the days of my first overclocked machine the Abit BH6 and celery 300a.

The enthuist aspect would be where I was heading as I am sure I will see quite an increase at stock from my Xeon 3110 and Lanparty P35 LT.
