Question on PC3200 or PC2700 Tags: Memory Command Prompt Corsair Last response: July 26, 2002 6:05 AM in Memory Share buttfacepooper July 26, 2002 2:58:08 AM I have a choice to go with either (515 MB on both) Corsair PC2700 CL 2.0 DDR memory or Corsair PC3200 CL 2.5 DDR memory. I will be using it with a athlon 2200 and asus333 mobo. Which should I choose? I am a newbie so I don't know what this means: The PC3200 will operate at 2.5-3-3, 2T command rate at 200Mhz, and 2-2-2, 1T command rate at 166Mhz The PC2700 will operate at cas latency of 2 cycles 2-3-3 at 1T command rate. Last Question: what does that mean? -Thanks for your help <P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by buttfacepooper on 07/25/02 11:03 PM.</EM></FONT></P> More about : question pc3200 pc2700 lhgpoobaa July 26, 2002 6:05:03 AM well are you going to overclock? if so, get the ram that can run higher. if not, save your $$$ and get the standard PC2700. if you want to know what the numbers mean, i think the memory FAQ has some info. for the general noob such as me, i just think of the numbers as memory delays. i.e. the higher the number the more your memory sits around waiting and the slower it is. low = good! P.S. good quality ram such as the corsair PC2700 should be able to run at lower latencies as they specify easily :smile: Asteroid 2002 NV7: The <b>REAL</b> solution to the Israel/Palistine problem!
