2133 ddr3 useful --> 3570K + Z77 (msi-gd65) for gaming/autoCAD

Hello,

Ive got a question:

Im building a new pc atm, ive got the msi gd65 Z77 mobo and a 3570K cpu. I use the system for gaming/autocad. The mobo supports:

1066/1333/1600/1866*/2000*/2133*(OC), 2200*/2400*/2600*/2667*/2800*(OC, 22nm CPU (which is 3570k) required)

Is it useful or can i stay with 1600mhz memory?

Thanks!

    You are fine to stay with 1600mhz, the 2133 speed difference isnt that great , which is also dependant on the timings.
    Just give your 3570K a good overclock and dont waste your money replacing your ram for a small increase in performance.
  2. 1600 is the sweet spot, anything over that isn't officially supported anyways.
  3. Thanks! I will stay with the 1600

  5. The difference between the totally stable DDR3-1600 and the once in a while error(s) or worst BSOD from faster frequency RAM makes little sense to 'me.' The gaming difference might be at best 1FPS gain or a few minutes (if you don't BSOD/error-out) on a large render. AutoCAD sucks-up RAM depending upon the project size and with 32GB you have the option for a persistent RAM Drive - http://www.superspeed.com/desktop/ramdisk.php which will speed-up everything i.e. greater reduction in rendering time...

    Instead of 'Faster ... More' - I would recommend at minimum 2x8GB (just in case) set or 4x8GB set of DDR3-1600 CAS 9~11. RAM is dirt cheap these kits only ~year ago were $1500~$2000 and now at $220~$260 are a steal.

    My suggestions:
    (low profile) Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR3 1600 (10-10-10-27 @ 1.50v) Model 994055 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226317
    (low profile) Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR3 1600 (9-9-9-24 @ 1.60v) Model 994050 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226315

    (better IC's but tall for some HSF) CORSAIR DOMINATOR 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR3 1600 (10-10-10-27 @ 1.50v) Model CMP32GX3M4X1600C10 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233229

    /edit I guess I missed the bell.
  6. thanks for this superinfo! Guess i was a bit too soon, sorry!

    I will put an extra amount of memory in it. what's the difference between the voltages?
  7. Ideally 1.50v is best with a VCCSA (VICCO) of 1.1v-1.2v. CAS 9 with 8GB/stick is faster but requires more voltage to remain stable. Using any of those kits set use the e.g. ASUS AI Overclock Tuner -> XMP then save and everything will be set optimally.

    Any of those kits are good and safe long term, 1.50v is safest.
