my RAM labeled DDR3-1600 PC3-12800 4GBx2 CL9-9-9-24 1.5V however in the bios even all are set to AUTO is shows 9-9-9-28 also in cpu-z is shows 9-9-9-28
all stock i7 2600k 3.4Ghz g.skill ripsaw 8GB kit sabertooth p67 mobo 750W evo blue PSU

Q. what is/are the effects having cpu-z and bios reads the cycle time different from what it is labeled?

Q. Does this cycle time affects the cpu temp gradually? if there's any thread regarding cpu temp kindly provide it here...

I was recommended on this forum to get http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820231314

but i was also recommended to get this from canada computers... G.Skill Ripjaws X series DDR3 1600MHz (F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL)

what's the difference between the two?

Hi all,


I wasn't sure whether to create a new thread or post here, so I figured here, and I have a few questions.  I am more on the casual side of PC gaming and don't really have a need for overclocking, plus I don't want to lower the life expectancy of my hardware, heh.  Anyways, I built my rig about 3 years ago.  No major problems, though it has begun to slow with certain applications.  I don't see myself building another rig for at least another couple years.  I was looking to up my current amount of RAM from 4 GB to at least 8 GB.


Here are my current mobo and RAM:

Mobo - http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813128415

RAM - http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820231276


With that said, would it be more prudent to just double what I have or make it somewhat future proof and go with 16GB? Will dual channel RAM remain a standard?


Because my mobo's max RAM is 16GB, I figured that those 16GB were meant to be spread over the 4 slots or can I utilize the max by only using 2 slots (3 & 4 respectively)?  Also, since my mobo can utilize 1333 from the getgo and 1866 would require overclocking, all that is required is to overclock the FSB separate from the CPU, and because there is no voltage increase and just a speed increase would this lead to any sort of degradation or would it be minimal?


This is the RAM I am thinking of upgrading to, provided dual channel remains the standard: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820231615


So in the end would it be better to double what I have or go with the 16GB?


If my questions are confusing/unclear I apologize.  Also, if any other technical specs are required, please let me know.


Any help is much appreciated!

Hi all,

Better to post it in a new thread :)


If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

There are two main types of memory failures: hard faults and soft faults.
First, hard fault: refers to loose memory, virtual solder or memory chip itself is damaged or unstable.
Two, soft fault: refers to the system in the running process, the software in the use of memory resources conflict or improper settings, and the resulting failure.
