Corsair Vengeance Or Corsair Dominator
May 29, 2012, 5:05 AM
Hi, so i'm planing on building a new gaming PC with these specs:
MB: Asus Z77 Maximus V Formula ( to be released in few days )
CPU: Ivy Bridge i7 3770K
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100
HDD: Western Digital 1TB Black
SSD: Intel 520 Series 240 GB
And for the RAM I narrowed my choice to either one of these
Corsair Dominator 16 GB DDR3 2133 MHz (
Corsair Vengeance 16 GB DDR3 2133 MHz (
So if any expert could tell me which one would work better i'd appreciate it.
Just so you know, I'm planing to overclock both the CPU and the RAM.
Thanks in advance!

I don't really mind voiding the warranty for better performance.
Now from what I see its only the timing that differs between the two, what is better regarding performance and OCing stability? having high or low timing?

There is no real world difference in performance between overclocked ram and non overclocked.
