DH87MC 4x8GB DDR3/1600 ... CL9?

Jump to solution

Hello,

I'm going to buy DH87MC + i7-4770 and I need 32GB RAM. I'm not sure if I can use CL9 because all memory-product finders (which knows this MOBO) offers just CL11.

Choosing a right module from the actual offer in my region (EU/CZ) is very hard. I found official http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/db-dh87mc/sb/CS-034214.htm list of tested modules, but no one is available for me. I found several models and hope I'll find working one. I'm the most interested in:

  • KHX16C9K4/32X (or 2pcs of KHX16C9K2/16X)
  • KHX16LC9K4/32X (LoVo)

But maybe the best choise will be A-Data (CL11) ...

  • AD3U1600W8G11 (selected by A-Data configurator)
  • AM2U16BC8R2 (similar to one tested by Intel)
  • AM2L16BC8R2 or ADDU1600W8G11 (LoVo, lot of submodels and no description: 2/B/R/S )

Please anyone can give me a advice or suggestion? Thank you, cheers.

Hello Dmnc,

The important memory specifications that you need to worry about are the memory speed and the voltage.

The processor you are using supports DDR3 memory and the speeds needs to be 1333Mhz or 1600Mhz, then the voltage need to be 1.5V.

The CAS latency (CL) is the delay time between the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memory_controller memory controller and the memory module to access a particular http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAM# Memory_hierarchy memory column and then to access the data requested. Therefore, CL9 will give you better performance than CL11, however the difference will be in nanoseconds.

When choosing the RAM, please make sure it is totally compatible with your processor.
