I know, thats why I stated "UNGH" I want to see what he is getting so far..... Dave is a tease...
Found this memory for around £40 on ebay delivered to UK. US seller...
The only question mark is for me, I have a P67 Sandy Bridge system, for this kind of system the extra memory speed (2133) seems to make next to no difference to real world tests like game frame rate. Am I right? Also is there any chance Ivy Bridge will benefit more in future? Same mobo. I will be upgrading to ivy.
Your sage advice most welcome folks. £40 is reasonable to me for this memory.
It makes no difference on any platform really outside of benchmarking and MAYBE a FPS here or there. For 99% of users, DDR3 1600Mhz is fine.
For me,the sammie's at 1866/19xx on my Intel Z68 boot's and opens programs way faster than at 1600
But that said, even at the same "speeds", the Mushkins felt faster still
Ok nice but available for under £40 on ebay in UK. Also overclockers have a terrible reputation in some parts for actual ordering etc. But nice to see their results.
link me ebay please.
You can get these in a tall version? Where?
Sorry man looks like it sold out at that price. Still available for £44 here from us ebay seller with shipping to here. Still thinking about this, seems like things like photoshop and video encoding would be better, not so sure on gaming.
however looks like 3 weeks ish for delivery and always possibility of delays and charges due to customs. Might be more hassle then it's worth.
US seller = custom tax
Has anyone gotten this working with a 4P AMD G34 system?
Not many users here with such a system, unfortunately. I tried harrassing a certain AMD server marketing rep into sending me some samples, but he never did, so I cannot test such things, either.
Just hit the local MicroCenter here in Chicago to pick up another set... for future purposes.
Website for MC showed that they had 10+ at Chicago store. When I got there, they only had 1 set left. Turns out someone had placed a web order for 30 sets.
Anyone seen any numbers on any bulldozer based systems, especially multi-proc systems (including IL)?
Don't use unregistered memory for server platforms, you really should be getting a server kit that uses registered ECC memory.
2x4GB kits are out of stock @NewEgg but 4GB single sticks are still in stock......
Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, L...
I'd be using this setup for folding, so ECC memory is not needed (it's not 'mission critical'). The board supports non-ECC, unbuffered memory and this is what I plan to go with. It's the direction that current 'power folders' are heading. Just checking to see if anyone here has used the stuff in a Bulldozer based machine (MC or IL).
I'm running 4 non-low voltage stickies in my bulldozer set up. Havent really had the time to play with them yet sadly, I just did a quick and dirty OC to 1866 at 9-9-9 with 1,55V(they are 1,5V at stock) and that has been stable so far. With these settings they're not even hand-warm.
I'm planning on doing more tweaking later though.
Just keep in mind that the extra load on the IMC might not let you have many unbuffered sticks because of the extra power required to drive the memory. If you're planning on filling more than half of the dimm slots you very well might run into issues. I'm just saying if you're going to be taking the route of a server platform that is a very smart move to do it correctly. I can't over-emphasize using buffered memory on server platforms, even if ECC isn't necessary.
More in stock
SAMSUNG 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600...
I'm going to run 1/2 (4 of 8 slots) per CPU. Lots of people run 'regular' memory in the boards for folding (SuperMicro H8QG series boards). I appreciate your concern I'll just be running the minimum amount of memory to hit quad-channel. If I could find them for cheap, I'd run 1GB sticks, but the 2GB sticks will work fine.
A long as you did the research, just make sure to check out the memory spec sheet before you go ahead. (Using udimms might restrict you to 4gb per channel.) Best of luck to you, interlagos is a beast on multi-threaded workloads.
Edit: thanks to mudkip I ordered the non LP version of this memory, M378B5273DH0-CH9, from dealforu.co.uk for around £36 delivered. Good price considering 20% vat here in the EU. Merchant reviews are quite mixed but I paid with paypal so should be covered. Just hope this is as good as the LP memory!
*sigh* can't get this in the UK for any kind of decent price.
Anyone willing to send from USA to me? USPS First Class seems to be $10 so $60 all in all more or less. Would be willing to PPG first but would need some decent heatware feedback naturally
Will worry about customs charge if it happens. You are welcome to open the pack and play with the sticks for a day or two before sending - as long as you don't kill em!
If anyone would like to do me this favour please drop me a PM, cheers.
Non LP version with the same chips are available on the european market.
