Hello everyone at ocn, since I'm having trouble with ripjaws on my new AMD rig was wondering which would be better? 1333mhz 7-7-7-20 or 1600mhz 8-8-7-23 which seem to be the tighests timings I am able to get out of them with 1.65v.

1600mhz 8-8-7-23 Don't even have to question that!!

Note: 800Mhz with a CAS 4 preforms the same a 1000Mhz CAS 5. Why? All has to do with being in a specified nanoseconds for the chips to transmit data. Look on wiki for more detail but as I have sad, take the 1600

Don't forget that Intel cpu's love speed over CAS

He put it in the AMD section but still [email protected] is better than [email protected] on the phenoms and DDR3

Actually I believe on Phenom II's, 1333 is marginally better for memory tests, while 1600 is the best for actual tasks such as video encoding...
I do a lot of video encoding
With you it depends, but go for 1600. If you push the voltage higher [you should have a look at my sig & the voltages I need on mine! :O) you might be able to get even less on the timings.
Be sure to run memtest86+ 4.00 for around 4 or more passes
Check stability with windows for a few minutes using memory-intensive apps and tasks, and games.
If in doubt or unstable, increase the memory voltage or the CPU-NB VID.
