Solved Need help choosing RAM Tags: Memory DDR3 RAM G.SKILL Product Last response: August 10, 2011 11:25 AM in Memory Share vollman1 August 10, 2011 10:42:57 AM Hello. I need help with choosing RAM. I need to know which of these is a better deal: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... The cheaper one (red) is 9-9-9-24 and the more expensive one (blue) is 8-8-8-24. Both would work in my system, but which is the better deal? Is there that much difference between the red and the blue?

You can probably lower the timing to probably 6-8-6-22, the 9-9-9-24 is just what they tested that works so they just shorta leave it alone on 9-9-9-24... EDIT: I would get the cheaper one(Red) and lower the timing yourself... IDK what you could get but probably around the 7-8-7-22 or so... vollman1 August 10, 2011 11:25:56 AM Best answer selected by vollman1. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
