I like the low profile it has, and it's got a clean look to it too.

I don't like that price though.

On my AMD Phenom II X4 955 rig, I'm presently running 4 x 4GB Corsair XMS3 Vengeance DDR3 PC12800/1600MHz CL9 RAM. Would there really be an observable advantage to running, say, 2 x 8GB with a faster speed of 2133 MHz ? (I don't think my GA-990FXA-UD3 motherboard supports this latter transfer speed (the manufacturers write MHz, but I presume they're really talking about MT/s), but assuming it did, would the difference be noticeable ?) My understanding is that rather than spending money on increasing transfer speed, it's better to increase the amount of RAM. Am I misinformed ?

Hi Henri,

I have four systems here. Two with 16GB of 2133MHz. And one with 16GB of 1600MHz. RAM in it. (also one with 32GB of 1600MHz. RAM) I switched the RAM back and forth between computers and ran benchmark software to gauge the differences. There was not a lot of benefit in everyday use scenarios. Benches showed a slight increase in performance, but IMO, not enough to matter.

While a computer benchmark program can "see" the added performance however slight, I cannot.

I think that adding more RAM gives more benefits than faster RAM does, but you get more going from 8GB to 16GB than you do when you go to 32GB. from 16GB.

Thanks, realneil - that's more or less what I presumed would prove the case ! I also agree that the hop from 8 to 16GB is far more significant than that from 16 to 32GB. With 16GB I can indulge in my unfortunate tendency to have 100+ tabs open on FF Nightly, without worrying about the machine slowing to a crawl....
