RAM and Rendering Tags: Memory Rendering RAM CPUs Product Last response: November 30, 2012 6:15 AM in Memory Share westleysnipez November 30, 2012 6:08:33 AM So right now when I render a 7 minute video in 720P, it takes about 20 minutes to finish. Although my CPU is excellent, my RAM is still lacking, I haven't upgraded it since I got my computer. According to CPU-Z, I've got 6GB of DDR3, but it is only at a total of 2133Mhz frequency. Would it be better to get 4 sticks of 4GB @ 1600 Mhz, or 2 sticks of 8GB at the same frequency? Ones I'm looking at right now is this one: 2x8: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item... 4x4: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item... Thanks in advance!

Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. That being said, the BEST on the market right now is this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... It doesn't look like much, and it's not flashy, but it's the most overclockable RAM on the market. I have mine at 2400 with CAS 10. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
