Re: Need help bad
Just what I was witnessing over on TPU. Mostly AMD guys trying to get over 1866 on the P2's and the IMC was the limiting factor.
The kit of RAM isn't bad for its purpose. The guy wants a gaming rig for a less than 1000 dollar budget, and it was the cheapest kit of RAM at the time. Right now (or maybe yesterday) they had a shell shocker for some Vengeance RAM, but as it stands timings or not, the bottom line is still the same. His money is better served in the CPU and GPU, more so the GPU.
I stopped being anal about RAM once I made the jump to DDR3. I used to spend a long time tweaking my DDR and DDR2 to get the best performance, but those days are over. If you have a sufficient amount of RAM running 1600 you're golden on a gaming rig. I'm not too anal about the voltages anymore either. Considering before Core i volts were 1.9 and higher for kits hitting 2000. I had a set of 1.9v G.Skill 2000MHz Black Pi running on my 955BE. Taking that into consideration, 1.65v is low. As of currently, I'm running 1600 1.5v with 8's vs running 2133 even though I have a very large RAMDisk. Running any game or program in my 8TB arsenal I have not seen a difference. I only crank them to 2133 for benching, which happens less frequently. Very less frequently. Will start doing that once my phase unit is fixed.
I'm guessing you have a good rig. You should post it up and throw down some benches in the OC sub-forum.
