Which 24GB Dominator Kit ??


Recommended Posts

Three Dominator 24 GB kits are listed as compatible with my Asus P6T Deluxe V2 MB.


• CMP24GX3M6A1600C9 DDR3-1600 1.65v


• CMD24GX3M6A1333C9 DDR3-1333 1.6v


• CMP24GX3M6A1333C9 DDR3-1333 1.65v


I am not using the computer for gaming. My main use is graphics programs like Photoshop, Illustrator, and the biggest reason for upgrading the RAM is 3D Studio Max.


Is the higher speed rating kit really worth while?


Which kit will produce the least heat?


Why are there 2 different 1333 mhz kits with different voltages?



Thanks for any feedback.

ok your CPU is geared for 1066 ram speed so the 1333 will be fine. the 1600 would work too but kind of overkill especially if the CPUs memory controller has an issue running that high. typically i would suggest the 1600 ram for 1333 CPUs but in your case if you got the 1600 ram you can try 1600 through enabling XMP and see if its stable if not try 1333 so its a mild overclock and would likely be much more stable. you dont want to crash while rendering!


good luck and happy shopping :)
