    Price Check

    Hi guys, need a couple of opinions

    I currently have 2x4GB Corsair Dominator Platinum 2133 in my system, I've been wanting to upgrade to 16Gb for a while but finding a matching pair has been both tricky and expensive.

    I have the chance to swap them for 4x4Gb Dominator Platinum 1866, with a bit of cash from me as a sweetener - how much do you think I should offer to make it a fair swap?

    Edit: and I don't think I'm going to notice the small drop in speed, am I?

    Do you know the CAS latency for the 1866MHz sticks are (and also your own ones)?
    Regardless, I don't think you'll notice much of a real world performance difference.

    Also, are the 4x4 gigs used as well?

    Re: Price Check

    Thanks for the reply, deal fell through in the end, guy was in cuckoo land wanting higher than retail for the 1866s.

    Just on the look out for a decent set of 16/32gb 2133/2400 now. Will probably just sell my current set and 4670k together.
