Read access memory gentlemen. Im confused about their speeds. Iv read some things and I keep coming to mixed conclusions.
Is 1066mhz ram to slow for modern gaming?
Iv been out of the game for a while. Some things i read say that the ram speed is a moot point, and others say its important. So im buying a motherboard for $200 and it takes 1066mhz ram. Am i wasting my time buying this motherboard with such slow ram??

TL;DR want to buy a mobo but the ram is 1066mhz and seems slow.

>DDR3 3000*(*OC)/ 2800*/ 2666*/ 2600*/ 2400*/ 2200*/ 2133*/ 2000*/ 1866*/ 1600/ 1333/ 1066/
that's the slowest it will handle but it will take faster ram if you want

What this guy said. Do more research OP, that motherboard will handle much faster ram than 1066

Your MB supports up to 2400MHz dual channel DDR3.

RAM is completely useless above 1600MHz single-channel unless you are using an AMD APU or have specialized software that can take advantage of the speeds. RAM is basically super fast storage which stores program data for your CPU to manipulate quickly.

Speeds for single channel DDR3 RAM are:

8.5 GB/s for 1066 MHz
10.6 GB/s for 1333 MHz
12.8 GB/s for 1600 MHz
14.9 GB/s for 1866 MHz

So in the end any kind of RAM is completely since you are going to be using a dedicated GPU anyway.

RAM speeds above 1600MHz are completely irrelevant beyond compression.
Latency is the bigger issue, google CAS latency.
>>
>>51472320
Can you explain what you mean by "beyond compression"? I've never heard of compression having anything to do with your RAM.

Is this satire? I don't understand what the force, precision and range refer to.

>>51472857
That's not funny, my brother died that way.

Anyone got the LED one?

(15 latency / 2000 mhz)* 100
=0.75

(14 latency / 2000 mhz) * 100
=0.7

Lower number is best. Now you can compare RAM at the same voltage. Just find the lowest voltage.

>tfw your ram is not in the /g/uide
Does a heatpipe affect force, precision and range?
>>
>>51472892

yes. If you could't see that yourself, I suggest getting tested for autism.

RAM works as a series of cells that hold one of two states depending on a shifting electron deficiency. When you see timings like 10-11-11-24 you should think of those like the time it takes a librarian to pick a book off of a shelf. They have to select the section, row, the elevation, then return back with the book.

Force is the drive current required to cause an electron to shift.
Precision refers to how much or how little drift the electron has inside of the silicon channel when drifting.
Range refers to the maximum number of cells that an electron can shift during one operation while flipping bits.

I hope that helps clear things up. I work for Geek Squad fyi,
