    Memory, 1600Mhz vs 2000Mhz

    http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=40530

    1600MHz RAM Speed, CAS 6-8-6-24 Timings, 1.6-1.65v VDIMM

    or

    2000MHz RAM Speed, CAS 9-9-9-24 Timings, 1.6-1.65v VDIMM

    http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...BlclBhZ2U9Jg==


    Which is actually going to be faster? purely from a Clock div CAS latency, the 1.6ghz is faster at certain points than the 2ghz.

    Once the data has been addressed the slower clock speed RAM has quite the upper hand!

    Is there any point in going for the 2ghz as a result? 1.6ghz is surely more than enough FSB headroom for overclocking?

    I wouldn't imagine you'd see any real difference outside of benchmarks, and even then it would be fairly minimal. I'd go for the 2Ghz stuff just because more headroom is always better when it comes to overclocking.

    (The second link isn't working, what's the price on the 2Ghz stuff?)

    1600MHz is the optimum for i5/i7 - going any higher and gains tend to be negligible and 1600Mhz can also be achieved without any overclocking.

    Although not the kit you listed, if you can get hold of the G.Skill kit thats 1600Mhz @ 6-7-6 that would be an uber kit, I think even some of G.Skills 'Eco' RAM can do fairly tight things: 1600Mhz ' 7-7-7 using 1.35v.

    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."

    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Hmm that is my thoughts, I can't see myself FSB clocking high enough for the 2ghz to be of any benefit.

    I've found some 6-8-6 G.Skill, might give that a whirl!
