How to choose RAM!


  1. Check your motherboard specifications for the memory type, # of slots/ram sticks you'll need, type of pin interface, and what DDR interface you'll need.
  2. Low CAS + High Frequency ram will be the most expensive. 

Example calculation of nanseconds: 


(CL/(Freq-in-MHZ) * 1000) = speed in ns.
14 CL @ 3200 MT/s = 1600 MHz ~ 8.75 ns $265
14 CL @ 3000 MT/s = 1500 MHz ~ 9.33 ns $235
15 CL @ 3200 MT/s = 1600 MHz ~ 9.37 ns $240
15 CL @ 3000 MT/s = 1500 MHz ~10.0 ns $210
13 CL @ 2133 MT/s = 1066 MHz ~ 12.20 ns $230

So the 15 CL @ 3000 would be the best deal unless you're willing to pay $30 more for .63 nanoseconds.
