    Maybe a few frames per second. Nothing substantial.
  2. Nope, get 1600Mhz.
  3. Depends on the platform, Ivy, no, Haswell, a little. If you are using an A-series APU, then faster RAM is VERY important, then even 2133MHz is worth it!

    If the price difference is not too large, then you may as well go 1866MHz and higher timings.
  4. Depends on the platform you are using. When using Intel CPUs, you'll hardly notice any difference and the same goes for AMD FX CPUs.
    AMD APUs however will much more benefit from faster RAM http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wXvZ0G0QV-I

  7. Novakue, did you answer in the "Your Answer" box below or did you do hit "Post an Answer"?

    Doesn't seem to be advertising as it leads back to a forum tutorial. I would put it down to a forum glitch, randomly linking tutorials. I'v seen it happen a few times around the place.
  8. I will be running i7 4770k

    Then 1600MHz is fine, but if its a small jump in price to 1866HMz, get that.

    What exact chips you looking at?
    Liniks would be useful..
  11. Ummm i am leaning towers

    Asus Maximus VI Hero - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131989

    But i am not dead set on anything yet i have a 2500 dolalr budget though my purchase wont be for two months until after my deployment so i am just trying to get all the info i can.
  12. With that large a budget, DEFINITELY get 1866MHz RAM.
  13. Haha alright should i get a mobo that accepts 1866 by default or is o.c ram on a mobo that allows o.c fine ?
