(I'm doing some upgrading to my pc )
But I forgot that my PC right now has ddr2 and obviously this mobo is ddr3.
So I got a few questions ..
I want to buy a ddr3 8gb corsair, but I see so many prices and little to no difference.
Can anyone explain me the difference please. http://www.frys.com/product/6552683?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN...
Well all three are 1600MHz speed, the first two are dual channel while the third in single channel DRAM. The only difference I can see is the heat spreader between the first two, but the CL timings may be different as well.
The 2x4GB sets are basically simply packaged w/ different heatsinks, the one set is lower profil for more common use if you have a large CPU cooler, the 2x4GB sets can run dual channel which can provide up to a 10% or so increase in performance over a single channel (1 stick here) selection, which is nice, especially with AMD rigs as they have a relatively weaker MC (memory controller) than Intel CPUs have
