pspcpog Posted December 6, 2010 Share Posted December 6, 2010 Hi, I'm considering a new 1090t build with GA-870A-UD3 board and am wondering which module would be better for a moderate overclocking (below 4ghz I guess) intended for 2d cad, 3d modeling/rendering. 1. 2x4gb 8gb CMX8GX3M2A2000C9 (2000Mhz CL9 9-10-9-27) 2. 4x2gb 8gb CMX4GX3M2A1600C8 (1600Mhz CL8 8-8-8-24) I could get them for about the same $ and I can't decide :confused: I know the cpu and mobo combo doesn't support 2000Mhz, so I'm thinking of downclocking the 2000Mhz to 1800Mhz. Is option 1 better than 2 when you overclock it because it's only two sticks vs four sticks of ram? I wonder what the timing is gonna be when you downclock 2000Mhz to 1800Mhz or even 1600Mhz? Can you maintain 8-8-8-24 timing with the cl8 1600mhz with four sticks rather than two? Please help!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
