What frequency is your rams?
2400MHz rated but running at 1866MHz.
1600MHz running at 1600MHz
Is there a discussion or question at the root of this, or are you just looking for a sound-off?
2133 as it was cheaper than the 1600 stuff when I bought it
Just some little research before i make a purchase...
2000MHz running at 2000MHz
TBH there's probably not much of a difference you'll see in the real world?
I don't notice it, I'd say save your pennies and go for something that meets your budget/is optimal for the chipset you're using.
16GB 1333, 8GB 1600 (2x8gb is expensive )
2400MHz running at 2600MHz because my board plain refuses to boot with XMP at 2400.
2200 and 2600 run fine, but 2400 it cannot POST. Go figure... LOL.
I think it's a RAM strap issue on the Maximus VII Impact. Well, it is on mine at least.
Isn't knowing the Mhz pretty pointless unless you know what timings it's running at?
2333, but running at 1800@ cas 8. Really not sure which option to select.
Main pc is running 2400mhz @ 2400mhz since it was only £10 more expensive than 1600mhz, media/lan pc is running either 1600mhz or 2400mhz cannot remember and my dads pc is running 1600mhz.
There's also that, and there's also the varying fact of which chip is on the module. Is it Samsung, Hynix CFR/MFR or something else? It's very likely to be either CFR or MFR these days, as they're cheap to produce. There aren't many good Samsung modules out there anymore.
More info to feed the research...
Desktop - 1600MHz @ 1600MHz
Server - 1600MHz @ 1600MHz
Play laptop - 1600MHz @ 1600MHz
Work laptop - 1600MHz @ 1600MHz
Wife's laptop - 1600MHz @ 1600MHz
My phone - 1600MHz @ 1600MHz
Wife's phone - 1600MHz @ 1600MHz
1600MHz seems pretty popular in this household, 72GB of the stuff in total. I have another phone too but the internet isn't forthcoming with the memory speed, I'm going to say it's 1600MHz @ 1600MHz though.
This might be of some use to you...
1866mhz, probably running at 1600 I think. I only bought the slightly faster stuff because I was using an APU for a time and that is as far as I know one of the few scenarios where you actually see substantial benefits from faster ram.
It's seemed to default to 1600 unless manually changed though, and I suspect I didn't bother changing it last time I refreshed.
Also, I went from dual channel 8GB to single channel 4GB. Didn't really notice any difference. I feel like ram is one of those things that (as long as you have enough) the return on additional investment is fairly small.
2400 @ 2400 10-12-12-31
Mister_Tad I think you need a new custom user title: 1600MHz @ 1600MHz LOL
I have two 6GB kits, one rated 1866 and the other 2000, and they are running around 1400 because of my OC. I had planned to do some tests to see what difference memory speed/latency makes...maybe I'll do that later today. My understanding is that anything north of 1600MHz doesn't make a lot of difference, and it does depend on the architecture of the system - eg quad channel 1600mhz should outperform pretty much anything else.
