Need help 2400 mhz cl11 vs 1866 mhz 9 cl

Hi tomshardware i have question i want to but i7 3770k mosly for editing so i want on board video to a bit of budeget and later but not that soon im gona get new GPU so i have quesion what to choose 2400mhz CL11 which is gona be faster for gpu but higher CAS letency or 1866 mhz CL9 lower cas letency?

More about need 2400 cl11 1866
  1. something with slower memory mhz but tighter timing will beat a 2400mhz ram chip, if u can afford to get a nice memory kit with 2400mhz ddr3 with tight timings id recommand this for extra performance boost.
  2. Go with DDR3-1600. You are not going to see a Nickels worth of REAL Life performance difference with ram at Higher speed - Diff only shows up in Benchmark (baring a few speciallized Appications).

    Side comment, Any DDR3 above DDR3-1600 voids your warrqanty on a IB CPU. ONLY important if you have bad luck an need to RMA the CPU.
    NOTE: same-same for SB, except Spec is for DDR3-1333
  3. well ull only see performance increase in a limited ammount of apps, but if he can afford it whynot.
  4. No problem with blowing excess money for bragging rights. Unless you have the apps that can benifit from fast ram, YOU will see NO Performance increase. And as I indicated if by chance your CPU dies, well then you get to Blow even more money as Intel could very well deny the RMA.
  5. it all depends dude, i dont recommand 2400 mhz but if u can afford whynot, and no way intel can know if u used 1800mhz vs 2400mhz ram unless theyre spying on u.

    Exactly what RetiredChief said. The performance difference bweteen DDR3-1600 and DDR3-2400 is negligible. DDR3-2133 is a good price balance between the two, and tends to run far more stable than DDR3-2400 (but not as stable as DDR3-1600 which is natively supported).

    If you're buying a rig for video editing, you may want to get a six core 3930k instead which has 4 memory channels rather than two. 4 channels at DDR3-1600 to DDR3-2133 will beat out two channels at DDR3-2400 any day. The extra two cores will help with everything.

    Intel will ask you about what RAM you use if you have to RMA the processor. If you tell them anything over 1.5v DDR3 1333 for Sandy Bridge or DDR3 1600 for Ivy Bridge they will deny the RMA. You are overclocking the IMC running anything faster.

    The only reason to get RAM faster than DDR3 1600 is with an AMD APU.
  8. well jedec said u can use 1600mhz with sandy dude, pretty shur not capped at 1.333 megahertz.
  9. As has been said .......it will work. As has also been explained it voids the CPU warranty. Believe it or not I really don't care. Three people in this thread are posting correct information. Hopefully the OP can tell the difference.

    Is your keyboard broken?
  11. My recamend is fill all slots dont see capacity. see mhz in board and ram.Reason mhz is the key to achive speed. if board support 1600mhz u insert 1333mhz its waste because not get full speed of ram slot. if board support 1333mhz u insert 1600mhz its also waste of money (1333mhz ram is cheaper than 1600mhz)also u not utilise full speed of ram. (4x1600mhz=6400mhz =6.4ghz) vs (2x1600=3200mhz=3.2ghz). think.
    Also my recamend is Buy "TRANSCEND" ram .reason other manufacturers give only 1year warenty but transcend give "lifetime warenty" so no need to warry about problems. Then cost "no more dealer and distributer " because anyone can "buy directly in TRANSCEND.COM" so cost lower then other.
    So buy axeram 2100mhz oc enabled.
    buy 2400Mhz Cl11
  12. Ok thanks guys i thought that i will benefit from 2400 mhz ram because from onboard video would be faster! But ok thank you guys
  13. just get 1600mhz cheaper and u wont see real world performance, 2400mhz is really only worthy for overclocking to be honest, but i am an enthuiast tho.

    my keyboard is broken, moving on.

    You were actually thinking in the right direction with this but it's really only the AMD APUs that benefit graphically from the faster RAM as I stated above.

    This guy again....... with a slightly different screen name. I thought he got banned or something. I don't know where you live but in most parts of the world Transcend RAM is cheap low end stuff and MANY other brands offer a lifetime warranty.....Also your post is completely incorrect as usual.
  15. So i think am going with kingston hyperx blu 2x4gb or 2x8gb because im gona render so or gskill ripjaws and WTF is "TRANSCEND" first hearing lol.i get 2 rams just because i have asrock z77m microATX board.And its fu**ing loaded board for its low price
  16. Just as long as it's 1.5v you will be fine. Be careful with Kingston as they still sell some low quality kits that require 1.65v to reach DDR3 1600. I usually use GSkill or Corsair.
  17. I'm not sure 2400 MHz CLK11 chips exist, at least on any DIMMs. I see 2133 MHz CLK 14, but I doubt that even they are found on DIMMs.

    I don't know what CLK is or what kind of RAM is not found on DIMMS??? If by chance you meant CL or cas latency then DDR3 2400 cas 10 is available. I dont know where else it would be available but on DIMMs since SIMMs went away in the early 90s.

  19. actually theres some decent trescend ram, so that statement if false,

    ive actually seen transcend ram and ssds in action work fine tome :)
