madu Posted December 8, 2008 Posted December 8, 2008 Hey guys, I'm looking for some budget DDR3 memories.. I'm looking at this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16820231222 But it has a timings of 9-9-9-24 I want to know what kind of a performance hit I would see compared to something with 8-8-8-21 like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16820231235 Also I would want to know how the FSB relates to the memory number in the case for Core i7. For example, in DDR2-1066, I can push the FSB to 533 without worrying about the ram. How does this number convert in the case of DDR3+Core i7? How does DD3- 1600 or 1333 convert to the FSB value? Also would you recommend going 4GB dual channel or 3GB Tri channel for better performance? Thanks a lot guys. Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
