Looking to build my shopping list for the last bits to fill out my computer. My current motherboard, Asus Sabertooth 990X, can support up to 32gb of 1866 DDR3. I currently have 2x 4gb & 2x 2gb sticks all four with latency of 9.
What exactly is going to benefit from lower latencies? I’m looking at filling out with 4x 8gb Dominator Platinums with the light pipe. I just swapped the sticks I have around, putting the max 8gb (2x4gb) into my backup system, and setting my primary system up with 12gb I first mentioned. When I swapped them around, I realized one down side to the liquid cooler, the fans don’t blow onto the ran, so my sticks were actually just below too hot to touch. I can fill out my ram slots for anywhere from 60-300. I’m trying to figure out what to get based on the benefits I’m going to get from them.
