Mobo LAN

Hey , what is the difference between a single LAN Mobo and a dual LAN mobo? and what are the differences ill see in peroframnce and is it worth it? i don't really know what a LAN has to do with a motherboard... Please help out as im looking at the Asus P6X58D-E and Asus P6X58D-Premium and not sure if Dual LAN is worth the money and that.. Also i'll be using a corei7 with this and Corsair XMS3 (6GB) or maybe the dominator version... another question would be is the dominator worth the extra £30? Can you really notice any difference in speeds?

  1. Well, the two benefits of dual LAN are that you can hook up to two networks simultaneously or (if supported) teaming. Teaming will get higher performance, but I've never tried it.

    So, I'd say unless you want to hook up to two networks simultaneously, don't worry about dual LAN
  2. What are the two RAM speeds and timings and voltages?
  3. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145289 is the dominator at 1600Mhz with the timing of 7-8-7-20 (£180.61) and http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MY-205-CS&utm_source=froogle at 1600Mhz and at a timing of 9-9-9-24 (£133.99)

    I lookied about a bit more though and found these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145286&nm_mc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r&cm_mmc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r-_-Memory+%28Desktop+Memory%29-_-Corsair+%28XMS+Series%29-_-20145286 which have the speed of 1600Mhz and timings of 7-8-7-20 at £130 but would pobably cost more as i'd be shopping from a british store
  4. that last RAM would be £155 ( sorry for second post)
  5. If I were you, I would go for the Dominator ones. It's a better product.
  6. Hmmmm the specs aren't any better though are they? sorry if i seem agrumentative ^^ and Corsair is already a high quality manufacturer so i know the other ones would be reliable too
  7. Corsair is the best memory builder. Anyway, The memory chips are not the same in all their models. The Dominator GT memory chips are incredible, the Dominator ones are very good and the XMS are just fine. I would not buy "Value Ram" from nobody.

  8. Thank you for your replies :) i guess ill stick with the Asus P6X58D-E mobo and get the dominator ram then...
  9. The only drawback to the Dominators is the tall heatsinks. What CPU cooler are you using?
