    Default RAM Timings

    So I just want to check if I am correct, and I will not post what I believe currently as I hate believing wrong stuff.

    But what ram timings are the better?
    8-9-8-28
    9-11-9-28

    Or to do an example:
    Corsair Dominator GT DDR3 2000MHz
    CL9-10-9-27

    Corsair Dominator GT DDR3 1866MHz
    CL9-9-9-24

    And does minor differences like that have any impact, or is the MHz 99% of the speed? I'm then thinking of benchmarking and gaming.
    Keep your words soft and sweet, in case you have to eat them.

    The Dominator 2000MHz will be able to run underclocked at the 1800MHz timings. The 1800 Dominator will have to be overclocked to 2000MHz with looser timings. Probably at similar to the 2000MHz Dominator.



    Remember, that is overclocked making the 2000MHz from 1800MHz probably requiring more voltage. That said, the 2000MHz Dominator isn't' really "better" but will overclock higher. Chances of hitting any higher depends what platform you run. You may not even get those frequencies with your CPU. I think the native speed is 1333MHz. Some get over 1800MHz but I am unsure that they achieve 2000MHz. I say just get good 1600MHz ram and call it a day.200MHz will not make a difference in gaming but a tad in benchmarks.

    In gaming you won't notice the different between those RAM but for benchmark the lower timing yield higher score.

    Yes you will but you can underclocked the 2000MHz Dominator to 1866MHz with the lower timings too. You will be lucky to get either to 1866MHz anyhow. The native speed on your IMC is 1333MHz. From what I have seen most get 1700-1800MHz. This said, if you cannot get the modules to rated speed. You will be able to get tighter timings.

    Lower timings do not always get better benchmarks. Sometimes higher frequencies with loser timings can get better benchmarks. The difference most of the time at 2000-1800MHz should be negligible. One way to find out. If your into benchmarking, get the 2000MHz memory and start benchkarking.

    Imo, you have 1600MHz memory now? I wouldn't waste the money. Your scores will not increase that much per the investment.

    Is 100-200 points in 3DMark06 worth upgrading from your 1600MHz RAM?

    In fact, I've just purchased, and installed this morning, 16GB G-Skill Sniper F3-12800CL7D-8GBSR Memory....just not working quite properly yet, having trouble booting up with the below timings, seems it only wants to boot up in 11-11-11-28, unless I have it in XMP mode

    I don't know you are playing and can tell the different with the naked eyes between these two RAM. Not in my case.

    Let's forget about which RAM will perform better than other for a moment. If you're overclocking the CPU to the extreme, the bclk beyond 220 then you get the fastest ram you can afford, and if you only OC around 205 then don't bother because the fast RAM wouldn't run at its rated anyway. But you won't have the problem with slower modules.

    IMO, the ideal RAM for Bloomfield is 1600-1800Mhz.

    @LL; you need to pump up the QPI/DRAM voltage (way higher) to get it to run.
