Hey guys, here's a pretty straight-forward question for you:
I have a motherboard: asus P5N32-E-SLI
which purports to support upto 1333mhz fsb
I'm upgrade my processor to: Core 2 Duo E8400 3GHZ 6MB Cache 1333Mhz CPU
(or alternatively to: Intel Core 2 Duo E7600 3.06GHz 1066Mhz 3MB Cache)
Question: I need to know which fast memory to buy which best suits my processor.
OCZ 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 1150MHz/PC2-9200 Reaper Memory Kit CL5 2.2V (5-6-6-18)
Kingston 4gb Ddr2 1150mhz Hyperx Memory Non-ecc Cl5(5-5-5-15)
Kingston 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 1066MHz/PC2-8500 HyperX T1 kit CL5 2.2V CL5(5-5-5-15)
Corsair 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 1066MHz/PC2-8500 Dominator Memory Kit CL5(5-5-5-15)
Assuming the price is equivalent for both variants, could someone please recommend whether it's better to have a CPU and memory both operating at FSB 1066, or whether it's faster to use a CPU rated at 1333 fsb using 1150 fsb memory...?
If anyone has the same motherboard as me, could they please confirm if they ever got 1066 or 1150 mhz mem to work on it, how they did it and which brand/model mem they used. Because I'm worried about this - a lot of people in the forums have reported huge problems with this model mboard and getting it to work at more than 800mhz fsb.
Thanks very much for any help guys!!
