New RAM question

Hey guys,

In regards to new RAM i'm getting for my computer (i7 4770k/GA-Z87X-UD3H/GTX780)

Wondering if the 16GB 2400MHz G.Skill TridentX CL10 would be better or 16GB 1600Mhz G.Skill TridentX CL7?

Cheers.

  1. I would go with the G.Skill set. It is faster and has a higher bandwidth.
  2. They're both G.Skill. Just difference between 2400 or 1600 and CL10 or CL7 respectively.
  3. Technically the 2400MHz is better, but in the real world you will not see the big difference.

    The 2400 has much higher bandwidth, so you'll definitely see a difference if you multi-task, have a number of Windows open, use any memory centric programs....The extra bandwidth is really nice, if your were to downclock the 2400 sticks sticks to 1600 performance wise would prob run at 1600 with a CL of 7 and maybe even 6 at about 1.45
