My System Specs

Default 8GB DDR3 Sticks - Samsung vs Hynix

Hi All,

Have a choice between some dual rank 8GB DDR3 sticks and am uncertain which to use.

Samsung M378B1G73QH0-CK0

I read about The Stilt's lacklustre experience with the HCK0 here
DDR3 IC thread - Page 5

Another guy did some testing and had some rather high voltage results. :(
DDR3 IC thread - Page 7

Would I be better off with MFR, given that they are dual rank? All of the negative MFR reviews seemed to be about the 4GB single rank sticks - high clocks but unimpressive bandwidth.

Dual-rank should rectify much of the MFR's performance deficit.

Are you aiming for really high clocks?

Either way, just get the MFR and manually tighten every primary and secondary timing you can.
