    2133 is still going to give higher bandwidth on an intel system plus it may OC higher:)

    but it all depends on the sticks too...

    My mushkin 1600mhz @6-8-6 are faster then a set of 1866MHz sticks @ 9-11-9

    on intel probably 2133 IMO, but they are very similar

    If these are for your p67 rig I would recommend getting a set of Ripjaws 1600mhz as most sets will OC to 1866mhz and any higher than that there is little/no benefit. Also paying a premium for 1866/2133 on 1155 isn't worth the minute gains

    I would look at a good price that's rated for your motherboards speed and if its only like $10~$20 more or the same price for something faster it will give you some headroom for oc or future upgrade.
    Also lower latency>higher speed always.

    Actually for Intel Sandy Bridge higher speed > lower latency.

    I can run some AIDA64 screenies when I get home a lot later...

    There's a 2000MB/s difference between 1600/2200mhz, like I said unless you're benching then anything above 1600/1866 has no real world difference and the difference in cost between 1600mhz RAM and 2200mhz doesn't make for a compelling reason to buy higher clocked RAM, not on 1155 anyway.

    Actually if you already have the Mushkin Blackline 2x4GB kit like I do as well, there won't be a difference in benchmarks for the Mushkins at 9-11-10-27 1T 2133 vs. the Samsungs at 9-10-10-28 1T.
    But you'll be able to run the Samsung at 1.55v vs. the Mushkin at 1.65v.

    remember though, with the Samsung it's not guaranteed, but it can be a cheap addition to your current RAM to run at the same speeds

    Thanks!

    Precisely what I wanted to see. Looks like considering they are the same price the 2133 @ 11-11-11-30 will be faster than the 1866 @ 9-10-9-28.
