Default RAM question

I know that lower Numbers is better, but between these two whats better? These seem to be just as good as the Corsair Domintor series to boot, or is this not true?



thx for the help

Default Re: RAM question

seems like the only difference is..

Cas Latency 7
Timing 7-8-7-24-2N
Voltage 1.5V


Cas Latency 8
Timing 8-8-8-21
Voltage 1.6V -1.65V

Which would make the first one better? I'm not sure though because I'm pretty sure these timings can be OCed in the bios.

Also make sure your MoBo supports Triple Channel Support if your going with 2GB x 3.

Since the cost is the same, get the second set, with the 7-8-7 timings. Tighter timings will help out, but not as much as most users will notice, though it doesn't hurt since you're not paying a price premium for the tighter timings.
