Hello all, i was wondering which memory would be faster?

DDR3 PC 1600 9-9-9-24

Or

DDR3 PC 1866 10-11-10-30

More about : memory faster

Don't bump it's frowned upon. the 1866 is faster. But if for gaming.. you'll never notice a difference and is pointless. Stick to 1600.

Thank you for the reply, and sorry about the bump ;) 

This has nothing to do with gaming, applications, or anything, I was just wondering in general. I know 1866 is faster but didnt know in this case if the timing of the 1600 would make that faster than the 1866

Check out this article.

Quote from the benchmark results
"We conclude the following from our testing:

There are very small real-life differences in performance between low clock frequency/fast timing Winbond memory and high clock frequency/relaxed timing Samsung memory. This is true in 3DMark01 and SuperPI even for CPU/memory intensive applications."

1866 runs at a faster speed, but it doesn't effect the speed of your PC if you are using an Intel CPU, but it does make a difference with AMD's APUs.
