You'll get your ram timings from cpu-z. Look at the SPD tab. At the bottom of the window is the 'timings table' which gives you your range for each frequency.

Use Everest to benchmark the memory and also your your read/write speeds.

I think you'll find this useful - How to Overclock RAM

If you plan do do CAD and similar things, you might actually benefit from the Thuban processor.


let me see here:



$742.92 without combos. I'd add 2 more 120mm fans on the side panel.

i am sorry but i can't rally go with combos right now, cuz my purchase date is in about a month and most combos disappear by then

so i mainly just looking for different brands i should consider or different parts

and i really like the antec 300 illusion so that isn't changing sorry
