C9 or C10 ? Does it makes a difference ?

Hi, I am a gamer, but not hard one. I am a novice overcloaker, so I might overcloak my new system, but nothing fancy.

Do you guys think going over C9 memory over C10 will make a difference ? These are the 2 products i'm hesitating:

1- Patriot Black mamba (http://www.patriotmemory.com/product/detail.jsp?prodline=5&catid=34&prodgroupid=232&id=1255)
2- Corsair vengeance (http://www.corsair.com/memory/intel-memory-upgrades/quad-channel-intel-memory-upgrade-kits/vengeance-32gb-quad-channel-ddr3-memory-kit-cmz32gx3m4x1600c10.html)

thanks for ur advice !

  1. In use you will see no difference between C9 and C10.

    I would also suggest either of these 2 kits over the 2 you have (keeping with the black theme)



    Corsair and Patriot are both great brands. But I prefer Kingston and Gskill.
  2. Okok, I wanted 8gb modules tough, and mine are both currently priced at 70$ for 16gb, thats why I asked for them two. Thanks for the advice !
  3. That's a great price!

    No problem.
  4. $65, DDR3-1333 CL9: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231486
    $67, DDR3-1600 CL10: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231489

    You forgot the which CPU and if OCing CPU, if for SB And NO OC go for DDR3-1333
    If For OC SB or IB (OCing or Not) go with DDR-1600

    The vast majority will see NO diff between DDr3-1333 and DDR3-1600 let alone a diff of 1 in Cass latency.

    Currently using Ripjaw DDR3-1600 CL7 @1.60 V - 16 gigs in i5-2500K (OCed) & 8 Gigs of the same in i5-750 (OCed). - They have been working flawlessly for over a year.
  5. $50 for 2 sets of DDR3-1600 CL9: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB)
  6. ^ Think he was looking for 8 Gigs (2 x 4gig).

    2 sets = 8 gigs = $50

    edit: unless he only has 2 slots on his mobo
  8. ^ Think he was looking for 16 Gigs (2 x 8GB)
  9. Ah then my recommendation based on him stating that he's a gamer, and makes no mention of anything else, is to stick to 8 gig as any more is probably overkill. But if you want to go to 16gb for another $15-20 I could see that. That's how I ended up at 12.

    Don't know what I was thinking....
    $39.99 8gb DDR3-1600 CL9 G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB)
    Price seems to have gone up since I bought it...
  10. Hi guys, thanks for the replys.

    I wanted to stick to 8gb modules (so 2x 8gb or 4x8gb) in DDR3-1600. I was just asking myself if I should go for C9 or C10 in the same class or I wont see any difference (9-9-9-24 vs 10-10-10-27).

    I am goin to 32gb, so I wont need to add more memory ever on that system, and maybe do some memory caching. see this link http://www.corsair.com/blog/vengeance-32gb-memory-caching-performance-tests/
  11. The two sets I referenced would be fine.
    For SB (iX-2XXX) CPU and no OCing the CPU stick with the 1333 as 1600 Voids wanantee (Only a concern if you have to RMA CPU (applies only to a Intel system).

    If for an IB (iX-3XXX), or an OCed SB, go with the 1600. CL9 or CL10, the ONly way you will EVER see a diff is if you run a benchmark - Real life you will NOT see a difference. That said if only a couple of bucks diff in price, he$%# go with the lower.
    Again only applies to an Intel set-up
