DDR3 1600 CAS 9 or DDR3 1066 CAS 7 Tags: Memory Overclocking DDR3 G.SKILL Last response: January 4, 2011 8:13 PM in Memory Share dsarchs January 4, 2011 2:13:50 PM I have been reading different threads relating to this but couldn't find a conclusive answer. I'm looking to get 8gb or ram for a new system and wanted to know which would be faster: G.Skill Ripjaws 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600 CAS 9 $109 or G.Skill Ripjaws 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1066 CAS 7 $89 Both are 1.5V I would be using the system for a balance of gaming and 3d modeling (architecture) / rendering. Which of these two would be faster and would one of these lend itself more easily to overclocking (ie. is it easier to overclock the speed or the timings)?
