    How to check actual Model of corsair VS8GSDSKIT800D2 is CL6 or CL5?

    Last month I buy this corsair VS8GSDSKIT800D2 RAM and it has not gives any problem. Now the problem is that I want to make sure that this is CL6 or CL5. There are so many confusion happen between these two concepts of the RAM. If you know any information regarding this issue then please share your own experience. Thanks in advance.

    If you compare two RAM such as 800MHz CL6 or 800MHz CL5 and check that which is fastest then we can say that the cl5, its cas latency. smaller number, faster timings. CL5 takes 5 clock cycles, while CL6 takes 6 cycles. Hence if you have any problem with this RAM then the way is to be use an reinsertion process. In that you can use this simple way that help to solve your problem. because of CL5 takes only 5 clock cycle for execution and hence the CL5 is faster than CL6.

    You can avoid such type of things by purchasing the Ram in official manner. The official site have now provide the online buying facility. You can use this and then if you faced any problem, then it is best to use this technique for the improvement purpose. There is no much different between this two but I think this would be not much impacts on the RAM module.

    You should not mix and match memory types. There are many differences present between this two memory module. They are as clock cycle, faster speed and execution cycle. CL5 and CL6 are CAS latencies. Column Address Strobe (CAS) latency, or CL, is the delay time between the moment a memory controller. cas latency is often referred to as memory timings on computer enthuasist websites. I dont really understand the cas latency but the manual of the RAM gives the complete information about it.

    When installing or upgrading memory you need to match the exact type and speed. I know that the lower the number the fast the ram is. But when we compare the two RAM then we consider the memory size of that RAM and the speed of such Ram. Here we can’t say that which is better RAM within CL5 and CL6.

    If you consider that two RAM are in similar size such as 2GB but one is the CL5 while the other is CL6, then we can say that the CL5 is the faster compared to the other Ram. The reason is simple. CL5 takes only 5 clock cycle for the execution purpose. Technically, the lower the timings, is the better. While the CL6 takes 6 clock cycle. In that case, the execution time of the CL5 has been increased and it must to be faster.

    Here we use RAM for temporary storing data and hence there is no need to compare the RAM in speed issue. This RAM has to be contains the frequency type of parameter. If you want to compare this type of two RAM then the frequency of this RAM makes an most important role in here. When buying ram look for the lowest latency for that particular speed of ram.

    CL (CAS latency,) is rated / calculated in clocks cycles, commonly referred to as ‘ticks.’ This is completely dependent on memory speed. This CL is also called as Column Address Strobe latency. 'IF' you can obtain them to work then you almost certainly will require to manually set the: Speed, CAS timings, and DRAM Voltage.

    If you have problem with this RAM then you need to use an proper way that works to identify that the RAM is CL5 or CL6. For your information there is no fixed parameter or technique that helps to detect that the RAM is CL5 or CL6. But you can view the configuration on the official manual of the RAM. as well as the chips present on the RAM also indicate that it is CL5 or CL6. But even so, a higher frequency generally provides faster memory bandwidth. This will be also helps to you for selecting best between this two.

    For more information you can contact the official site expert. The expert person on the official site might be help to you for deciding that the Ram is in CL5 or CL6. You can also read many articles related to this for judging the RAM configuration and confirmation that it is the correct configuration based Ram.
