Which is better (i will have 32gb for video editing/transcoding) Corsair Vengeance Black 16GB 2X8GB DDR3-1600 CL10-10-10-27 1.5V Dual Channel Memory Kit. Qty 2 http://ncix.com/products/?sku=6635 [...] re=Corsair Or Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB 2X8GB PC3-12800 DDR3-1600 1.5V CL9 Dual Channel Memory Kit. 9-9-9-24. Qty 2 http://ncix.com/products/?sku=6889 [...] omoid=1260 Is the Crucial Ballistix faster because the latency is lower / timing faster? Will it make a difference? Also, should I overclock my RAM when my build is ready---will that make it faster? The rest of my build: i7 3770k H100 cpu cooler Asus p877v deluxe Msi gtx560ti hawk Xfx black ltd 1000w psu Vertex 3 120gb boot drive Seagate 3tb data drive Bitfenix colossus venom case Asus dvd/bd burner Please weigh in.

Though i prefer the Crucial sticks because they have less timings. m 0 l twogunpete June 10, 2012 3:55:47 PM Hi, why wouldn't you buy an H100? m 0 l Related resources a8-6410vsa10-5745m which is faster/better? - Forum DDR3-1600 CAS8 vs. DDR3-2400 CAS11 -- Which is faster/better? - Forum Which laptop is faster/better configuration? - Forum Which laptop is faster/better configuration? - Forum which is gonna be faster/better ? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Understood. A liquid cooling system will outperform the H100.
