Hi guys, I'm currently thinking of replacing my current memory, a 2x2gb corsair xms 1600 cl7 1.65v to a g skill eco 1600 cl7 1.35v. my current specs are core i5 760 cpu, asus p7p55d-e pro mobo, gtx 460 1gb cyclone vidcard, corsair hx650 psu, coolermaster hyper 212 plus cooler. I also plan to overclock. I think the lower voltage would give a better performance but I'm not sure. Do you guys think the g skills would be better or should I just stick with the corsairs? Thanks in advance
I know that it is compatible. My question is that if the g skill rams would be an improvement over my corsairs because i was thinking the lower power requirement would mean lower heat and better overclockability. Thanks again
Just NEVER mix them on the SAME MOBO together, and both are average. Both sets are relatively close but my guess is the Corsair is slightly faster - neither is a good OC set.
For another few bucks I would recommend the following Corsair set that I know is both faster and OC's very well. It also has a 2X4GB sister that is also an excellent choice.
