Which memory to go with.

Mushkin 6GB kit 6-7-6-18 @ 1600


Kingston HyperX 6GB kit CAS 8 @ 2000

I'll be putting in 12GB, so I'm wondering if it's going to be hard to hit those numbers on the Mushkin, and maybe just go with the Kingston.

Is it really worth it to go for the lower CAS timings when selecting memory?

The motherboard will be an ASUS P6T, with an i7-920. I will be going for a mild OC, so should I go for lower CAS or higher frequency?

Thanks in advance.

  1. Hi. My 1st question is. Why do you need 12GB?
  2. To start with I'm going to use a large RAM drive.

    I'm also going to be doing a lot of software development (as well as playing games). It's not uncommon for me to have two virtual PC's up and running.

    ^Ok, that's a good reason to get 12GB. So, I would go for the Muskin.
