ocz or mushkin OC related question

422 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  redhat_ownage
i want to be able to have the room to overclock in the future and i cant decide on memory


Timing 7-7-7-20
Voltage 1.85V - 1.95V
the voltage seems a bit high for overclocking much

Timing 8-8-8-24
Voltage 1.65V
lower voltage but slower timings

where my question comes in ... with the ".2 - .3" difference in voltage would that equate to about the same or would the OCZ be able to overclock further?

thanks and rep+ for helpful replys

another option i found was

Timing 7-8-7-24-2N
Voltage 1.35V
i like the super low voltage on these that leave room for much OCing but i was mainly looking for BEMP certifed sticks to help with the settings.. i dont mind putting in the extra effort if the lower voltage and lower timings to begin with will yield far higher OCs than the BEMP sticks above

Doesn't matter for voltage. As long as it's below 2.1v it's safe for RAM...

IIRC, Mushkin is a little better than OCZ for RAM quality, so I would go with the Mushkin.

I have the mushkin you are thinking of using and it runs great with some bios adjustment. I wouldnt heisitate to use it again but when I got it it was 104$cad for the kit. I have it at 1660mhz stable at 1.92volts 7-7-7-20, So thumbs up for mushkin.
