Hi everyone,
Does anyone think that I will even see a difference going from Redline DDR3-1600 (7-9-8-24) to Redline DDR3-2400 (10-12-12-28) ??
Does the bus bandwidth increase compensate for the timing increase :unsure: ??

Hi,

Depends on the platform, some CPUs can't do DDR3-2400, some systems like the AMD APUs for example get much better video performance with higher frequency memory.
In your case, I believe you have a Z77 mobo, there would be an increase in memory performance, but it would not be huge. Assuming your CPU's memory controller is stable at DDR3-2400.

With the memory you have you should be able to overclock to DDR3-2133 or possibly 2400 just by loosening the timings.
Try 10-12-12-31 2T @ 2133/2400 and see if you are stable.

Thanks for the reply. You are correct that I am using the Z77 chipset in an Intel platform. (i7-3770K + ASUS Maximus V Gene)
The board is advertised that it will handle DDR3-2800, so I hope 2400 would be stable :lol: .Thanks for the O.C. suggestion - I'll give it a try.

One thing to keep in mind, when they advertise DDR3-2800 there is a (OC) in that spec as well, what that means is overclock and therefor not guaranteed. More or less it comes down to the capabilities of the memory controller on the CPU.

Well, I tried the settings you suggested and some others - but decided to get the 994083's anyway :-)
