Which RAM? Tags: Memory DDR2 RAM Corsair Product Last response: September 26, 2006 3:16 PM in Memory Share JohnnyBoy79 September 25, 2006 10:00:28 AM In the next few days I will be ordering the parts for my new rig. The choice of RAM is still giving me a head ache. So far I have decided to go for this mobo and CPU: Conroe E6600 Asus P5B Due to budget I have 2 choices for the RAM. They are: 2Gb (2X1Gb) Corsair TwinX XMS2, DDR2 PC6400 (800), 240 Pin, Non-ECC Unbuffered, CAS 5-5-5-12 or 2Gb (2X1Gb) Corsair TwinX XMS2, DDR2 PC5400 (667), 240 Pin, Non-ECC Unbuffered, CAS 4-4-4-12 Both are about the same in price. Which is better for the E6600? The lower latency or the higher speed? Thanks. More about : ram Killercop September 26, 2006 12:20:16 PM Hmmm.. The difference is not like enourmous.. But I personally would choose RAM nr. 2, the one with lower latency. attakorn_ohm September 26, 2006 3:16:56 PM I personally would go for the faster clock Like killercop said...not enormously different. Actually, I don't think it'll make a difference much cuz 667mhz can be oc to 800mhz and the 800mhz could probably tighten down to CL4, not sure though. No matter which ram u end up with, try oc and/or adjust latency, and tell us what ur best result is! thanks Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SolvedWhich RAM is better?
