Solved Is higher bus speed RAM help loading game faster ? Tags: Sims RAM Games Bus Speed Memory Last response: July 5, 2013 8:53 AM in Memory Share enterprise24 July 5, 2013 6:56:50 AM I Play Sims 3 with all expansions , that is 30.7GB My save game size is ~1GB Is it possible to instant load ? Here is my spec i5-2500K @ 4.5Ghz Biostar tz77xe4 2 x 4GB Kingston ddr3 1333 9-9-9-24 1.5v Plextor M5Pro 128GB (windows + Sims 3) WD Blue 500GB SATA II Powercolor HD 5770 1GB When install sims to HDD it take about 1 minute to load. Try SSD it take just 30secs. But I still not happy , want to see under 10secs. I wonder if something like ddr3-2400 with low CL will shorten my load time ?

I doubt you can get lower than 10 seconds with a 1gb read. Getting faster RAM will only help it a little bit (maybe 3-4 seconds). keith12 a b } Memory July 5, 2013 7:21:08 AM AgentMcBride said:The speed is basically limited to your harddrive/SSD's read speed.
