Hi All,

Just finishing my new build, and would like your opinion on RAM please. 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

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. Thanks!

I wouldn't grab an H100, either ways those memory will give the same performance. Though i prefer the Crucial sticks because they have less timings.

Hi, why wouldn't you buy an H100?

For the price of the H100 you can get a full fledged LCS such as the XSPC RASA RS240 for 129.99...Thats why there is no need to buy a H100

Ok. Understood. A liquid cooling system will outperform the H100.

So the RAM performance will be the same even though the Ballistix has lower timing?

the lower timing one should on paper be faster since the frequencies are the same
