Currently I'm using ASUS M4A79X TD mainboard. I got myself 4GB G.Skills 1333MHz, 8-8-8-24 dual channel at 1.5V
Since my CPU's ( Phenom II X4 965BE ) memory controller handles up to 1333MHz RAMs and mainboard recommended voltage for RAMs is 1.5V
this is what i bought. Recommendation i got from QVL list in manual.
Now is that make any difference in performance if i use 1600MHz with my mainboard ?
Does it make any difference if i use any other RAMs 1333MHz same timings but at higher voltage ( for instance 1,65V ) ?
Synthetic memory bandwith test showing advantage of faster memory but gaming and PCMark tests going for shorter timings.
Reason i asked is i'm considering changing my CPU to FX-8150 and what comes with it memory works at 1866MHz.
The best timings i could find was Mushkin DDR3 PC3-14900 9-10-9-27 Redline ( if i get that CPU ).
I'm trying to find out before i make up my mind if those DDRs with 9-10-9-27 perform faster than my current 1333MHz 8-8-8-23
or perhaps i should go for 1600MHz 8-8-8-23 rather than those Mushkins?
Between them 2 - 1866MHz 9-10-9-27 and 1333MHz 8-8-8-23 timings are not massively bigger frequency is.
