G.Skill Ripjaws 2133MHz C9 v G.Skill Trident X 2400MHz C10

Hey all,

I am currently building a new PC, and would like to know which one of these kits offers the best performance:

1. http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B007COT274/ref=ox_ya_os_product

2. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Skill-PC3-19200-2400MHz-Gaming-Memory/dp/B007V9PZFI/ref=sr_1_2?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1387783800&sr=1-2&keywords=g+skill+trident+x+16

I am aware the faster one has slower timings, but thats about as far as my knowledge goes.

I will be using the PC mainly for gaming, but need strong all-round performance.

Thank you memory specialists!

  1. Well the trident will most likely clock the highest (or get tightest timings at the same lower clock). Realistically, outside of synthetic benchmarks you won't see any difference.

    So very little/no difference in gaming? Would you recommend one over the other? Also...why do people seem to want lower voltages - i.e. 1.5v instead of 1.65?

    Thanks!
  3. 1.5 is the suggested standard for DRAM 1866 and under, above that as the freqs go higher 1.6-1.65 is perfectly fine....running higher voltage or needing higher voltage at entry level freqs of 1333/1600 can be indicative of weak ICs (memory chips)....the higher freqs like 2133/2400 etc will show more in multi-tasking and using more memory centric apps, in gaming for the most part DRAM is simply a data conduit
