Closed Which RAM should I get? Tags: Memory DDR3 RAM Kingston Last response: August 9, 2012 11:17 PM in Memory Share odysside August 9, 2012 11:32:07 AM Ok I'm choosing between 2 different chips of RAM. I'm looking to get 16GB of RAM (4x4 GB) but I'm wondering if there is any significant difference between the clock rate in the RAM. Kingston DDR3 16GB PC-17000/2133 CL11 HyperX G.Skill DDR3 16GB PC-19200/2400 Trident X F3-2400C10Q-16GTX I'm going to use an ASRock z77 extreme 4 motherboard. The Kingston is only slightly cheaper. Thanks in advance. More about : ram Best solution abekl a b } Memory August 9, 2012 11:33:03 AM In real life you won't see any performance difference between those two ram kits. Go for the least expensive at the time of purchase. odysside August 9, 2012 11:35:23 AM Would it be more noticeable if it were say 1600mhz compared to 2400mhz? or isnt it worth the extra money.

Where you do see a big difference is between 1333MHz and 1600 MHz - that's why 1600 MHz memory is so popular. odysside August 9, 2012 11:44:15 AM Best answer selected by Odysside. odysside August 9, 2012 11:44:25 AM Thanks nikorr a c 146 } Memory August 9, 2012 11:17:52 PM This topic has been closed by Nikorr Can't find your answer ?
