Solved Clock Speed vs. Cas Latency vs. Size Tags: Memory Latency Internet Explorer Overclocking Last response: August 6, 2011 2:41 AM in Overclocking Share jrwizbang August 6, 2011 1:18:22 AM I was wondering what matters most with ram, and for what sort of application? ie: gaming, rendering, photo editing, etc. More about : clock speed cas latency size 4745454b a b } Memory a b K Overclocking August 6, 2011 1:36:26 AM Seeing as you listed completely different tasks, I'm going to say each of those matter in different ways. Except for gaming. Just get 4 to 8GBs of any ram and you'll be fine. m 0 l Best solution RetiredChief a b } Memory a b K Overclocking August 6, 2011 2:26:39 AM Here is an artical from Anand's that looks at the effects of speed/timing (as it pertains to the SB systems). The link points to the "final word', but you can look at the indivdual benches. http://www.anandtech.com/show/4503/sandy-bridge-memory-...
