    2800mhz ram will perhaps be my next upgrade, boost it to 3Ghz of course and then claim the fastest ram among all the Gurus, that's the plan anyways haha. I'd have to look into RamDiscs before getting 32gb, 16gb would be nice but as the fast ivy ram is still expensive it'll probably be just the 8gb i go for (8gb of 2800mhz corsair dominator platinum is £220 currently., the 2666mhz is a lot less though but will perhaps be more difficult to hit the magic 3Ghz.
    Most folks in my experience on this forum have no idea what fast ram can do, in part i guess to not running ivy, and in part a small bit to always going for price /performance instead of quality /performance.
    fast ram brings your minimum framerates up in games. (fast ivy ram moreso, and also sandy-e) and anything beyond 2133 really)

    Ya my next upgrade is going to be 2400mhz ram.. Running my 1866 oced and i can tell a pretty good diffrence. I would buy some right now but am waiting till i see a really good deal on a 8350 and the Gskill trident x 2400mhz.. Im in no hurry. lol. I would like to see sometime some benches with ram that is oced to 3000mhz like start at 1600 1866 2133 2600 3000 on both the amd and intel platforms and see what ones get bigger gains... Im guessing intel would but you never know.

    If only I could get my G.Skill Ripjaws Z DDR3-2400 to run above 1600 without a processor upgrade.
    And can someone explain to me why they keep making DDR3 at higher clock frequencies yet with looser timings? Wouldn't the next logical upgrade be DDR5?

    Also, while I agree that faster RAM would increase minimum FPS in games, I disagree that it would be very noticable. Going from 8gb DDR3-1600 @ 1200 to 24gb DDR3-2400 @ 1600 (albeit with slightly tightened timings) has made pretty much no difference on my 3D Mark 11, or gaming performance.

    Cheers,

    and is there a mobo that will run these speeds without having to oc the frag out of the whole system and make it unstable

    Example:

    i bought 16gig of 1866ddr3 and tried to run xmp profile,my mobo want to run my cpu @ 4.6ghz and ddr3 @2000mhz,so i buy 2133 ddr3 now my cpu wants to run my 2133ddr3 @ 1600 or be unstable at 2133mhz with cpu @ 4.6mhz,i tried 2133 with cpu @4.5mhz which is what i normaly run for cpu and had noting but boot issues,only option would be to upgrade to i7 3930 or 3960 but for most games would be very little improvement over my 3820@4.5ghz

    My RAM seems quite happy running at 2457Mhz at 1T timings :) (I'm running 43x102.40).

    What RAM do you have?
    My DDR3-2400 will only run at 1528/8-8-8-24-200-2T or 1528/10-8-8-24-200-1T (although that seems to be because of the IMC on my i7-920) - anyone happen to know what's best? It seems to change at random for every reboot, and I might as well set it manually to what's fastest and stable, and I don't know whether to trust AIDA64's benchmarks - they seem quite unreliable in terms of real-world performance.

    Cheers,
    Zareph / Peezee :)

    Haha nice, however the hard part will be finding a mobo that supports 2800mhz....

    Almost every z77 i imagine, slacking in the homework dept eh? It's true, 2666 is standard, 2800 easy OC, 3Ghz the golden number.
    Using ivy of course.

    Yeah OK - I didn't bother checking Intel boards....

    You'll find it is very rare for an Ivy imc to be DDR 3000 capable

    Hence one of the reasons i chose a semi-enthusiast mobo.

    That still doesn't help the cpu's internal memory controller, typically Malay's have better imc's on average than Costa's

    If the memory controller doesn't do well in memory speed no motherboard is going to help you. The memory controller is on the CPU after all.
