Easily one of the fastest and accessible pieces of DDR3 kit, if your system does not support OC'ed RAM. At 1600 MHz and a CAS latency of only 9 cycles, plus an understated cooling element that looks absolutely wicked, you can't go wrong. Can be had for $17 per 4 GB stick on eBay.

It's ok. It's just ok... To slow for heavy work. 8BG will be fine for gaming tho.

 Frequently Asked Questions

 Best User Rated

Why does UserBenchmark have a bad reputation on reddit?
Marketers operate thousands of reddit accounts. Our benchmarks expose their spiel so they attack our reputation.
Why don’t PC brands endorse UserBenchmark?
Brands make boatloads on flagships like the 4090 and 14900KS. We help users get similar real-world performance for less money.
Why don’t youtubers promote UserBenchmark?
We don't pay youtubers, so they don't praise us. Moreover, our data obstructs youtubers who promote overpriced or inferior products.
Why does UserBenchmark have negative trustpilot reviews?
The 200+ trustpilot reviews are mostly written by virgin marketing accounts. Real users don't give a monkey's about big brands.
Why is UserBenchmark popular with users?
Instead of pursuing brands for sponsorship, we've spent 13 years publishing real-world data for users.
