Hawkeye360It seems that RAM above 3200MHz doesn’t provide much benefit in everyday use and gaming. TPU did an article about RAM speeds and timings and concluded that 3000-3200MHz is the sweet spot.PS: 3200/14 is 228 and not 246. 3200/13 is 246 though! :)
icslowmoOne run at all auto settings XMP profile at 3200Mhz (14,14,14,34 C2) and OC'd to 3800Mhz with a little looser timings and Re set to XMP 3200Mhz profile but forced Command rate 1 vs 2.
ehabash1i run typically 4000Mhz 16 16 16 36 on a maximums xi hero mobo. i was running 4100 but it was only partially stable. Its been pretty much accepted that the 3200 Cl 14 ram is the best for some reason. You will see that all over the forums and all over youtube for that matter. Even some of the famous bloggers/youtubers use it as the "gold standard" The problem is that ppl dont understand speed is more important than timings. Dont get me wrong you want both, but after seeing benchmark videos of different speeds tested i was shocked. games like shadow of the tomb raider getting 19 FPS better with 4000 19cas vs 3200 14cas. It's just really eye opening But you will continue to see everywhere that 3200 is best and that above that there is little gaming benefit. simply false
