Some DDR3-12800 1600mhz ram at CL9/10 will only run at 1333mhz. This has prompted many recommendations to purchase the more expensive CL11 basic value ram from Crucial or Kingston.
On my XPS 8500:
Rev A10 bios reports 1600mhz.
CPU-Z reports 800mhz (x2) with timings of 9-9-9-24.
Also Sisoft Sandra memory benchmarks are higher with this ram than the OEM Samsung @ 1600mhz CL11.
Definitely recommended for the XPS 8500.
Cheap and great, i suggest ;)
Scores 7.8 on Win7 score. When running board at standard overclock setting, the MB throttles it back down to 1445 but it does so automatically while increasing CPU core and NB Freq up. So these chips are 100% compatible. I'm not a fan of the higher profile memory heat sinks so these are good sticks for the $$$.
I decided to get 2 additional modules of 4GB each or total of 8GB. I almost purchased the Corsair Vengeance because of its popularity. But then I read how some users had fit and clearance issues with the Vengeance due to its size. To avoid that problem, I went with these Crucial Ballistix 2x4 GB modules.
Upon opening my desktop PC tower to install the Crucial RAM sticks, I was glad that I went with these Ballistix. They are the same height as the original RAM modules, and there is not much clearance. I removed the original 2x2 GB modules (already 6 years old) and put them in the slots that have been open since purchase. Then I inserted the Ballistix in their place to have them closest to the CPU. Installation was very easy and quick. Afterward, I verified that the system now recognizes that total RAM is now 12 GB (new 8G + original 4G).
It has been two weeks since I installed the Ballistix modules. So far no more crashes. Also everything just seems much quicker than before, especially when I have multiple applications running at the same time.
Very glad I purchased this item. I should have done this sooner.
Keep this in mind; this RAM is low profile RAM. If you are having problems fitting heatsinks or water coolers in your case due to large RAM heatsinks, look no further. This is the perfect product. This RAM is a MUST buy.
