    Interesting article about DDR3 scaling with the Core i7

    It seems that sticking with 1066mhz DDR3 makes the most sense:

    All good, but too bad the price of 6GB 1066/1333 in the UK is almost the same as 1600.

    Re: Interesting article about DDR3 scaling with the Core i7

    I have read said article a while back but if prices between 1066/1600 are similair you could get the higher rated RAM and drop to 1066 but with improved latency timings to get the best performance?

    Re: Interesting article about DDR3 scaling with the Core i7

    Hmmm i have read that before?

    I made the assumption that the difference wouldnt be that great so i opted for lower speed ram to 1600 DDR3

    It confirms i am not a fool
