Solved Which memory to choose? ddr3 Tags: Memory Product Last response: June 15, 2010 1:33 AM in Memory Share cmaki2008 June 14, 2010 6:38:08 PM I already got http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... in my biostar 790gx a3+ http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/t-series/introduction.... I was wondering if going with http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... would be ok considering I already have 4gb of the other ram (same company everything but it runs at a different voltage) 1.65V instead of the 1.5V of the ram I already have installed? What type of a difference does the voltage have anyways? if anyone know of any other cheaper 4gb ddr that 1333 kits that might work a suggestion would be great too is it worth paying the extra 29 bucks to know its going to work in my motherboard with the others? lol More about : memory choose ddr3 Best solution saint19 a c 163 } Memory June 14, 2010 7:06:12 PM Hi. Adding 4GB more to ur rig will be a waste of money unless that u use many adobe applications at the same time. Now i would change the RAM for this one since have better CL and speed. Share SeF June 14, 2010 7:37:58 PM saint19, What differs these Ripjaws to the ECO models? (Besides the 1.35v...) Same clock speed (1600) and same CL (7). I just want to understand why most of the people recommends these Ripjaws instead of the ECO ones... ^^ m 0 l Related resources What ddr3 memory to choose with this build? - Forum Which RAM to choose?

Get the answer cmaki2008 June 14, 2010 7:42:07 PM so the lower the # for the cas latency and the lower the # for the timing the better the ram is correct? when would the voltage of the ram become a factor? m 0 l saint19 a c 163 } Memory June 14, 2010 8:14:56 PM @cmaki200: Yeah, a lower CL and higher speed means a better RAM. The voltage for DDR3 must be 1.65V or less, above of that ur CPU and memory controller can be damaged. @SeF: The voltage as u say, but bear in mind that with less voltage use less power and produce less heat. Why the Ripjaws and not the ECO? only for price/performance. m 0 l SeF June 14, 2010 8:35:00 PM So, use less power (save more energy) and produce less heat (run cooler). I thought that the perfomance would be the same (CL7 + 1600Mhz), technically. Does the timing make the difference here? m 0 l saint19 a c 163 } Memory June 14, 2010 8:42:37 PM Yeah, same performance but the ECO series can give u a little OC possibilities over the Ripjaws since u can rise the voltage of the ECO and not of the Ripjaws. m 0 l cmaki2008 June 14, 2010 11:53:04 PM thanks saint m 0 l saint19 a c 163 } Memory June 14, 2010 11:55:45 PM Any time, that's why we are here.
