Which RAM should i buy?

Post by lonesoul on 19th October 2010, 11:46 pm

Guys i've got two options:
Either i could buy:
CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMP6GX3M3A1600C7

Or

CORSAIR XMS 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) Desktop Memory Model CMX6GX3M3A2000C9

Which one should i buy? I would be overclocking my processor.
XMS has a timing of 9-9-9-24
Where as Dominator has following timings 7-8-7-20

And what does timing gotta do with RAM and PC3 12800 or PC3 16000?
