Dumb Corsair Memory Question

Hi

I am buying RAM and for the life of me I am not smart enough to know what the difference between Cosair's RAM here is:

http://www.corsair.com/memory-3/dominator/dominator-gt/cmt12gx3m3a2000c9.html


Am I missing something that is the big difference?

Am I right in that the GT's can only run at high speeds? That is the big difference right?

  1. The big difference is the speeds, the Dominator GTs run at 2000Mhz and the Dominators run at 1600MHz. Other than that, the GTs are cooler looking in my opinion, which influenced me to get the 12GB (6x2GB) set on sale for the same price as the regular Dominators.
  2. Right. I am not certain if my MB can handle 2000 or not, The GTs do run slower than 2000 right? like do they run even at normal 1333 or so

    Yep! if you don't set them up in your bios any ram set is going to default to mobo specs 1333Mhz and 1.5v.
