DC vs QC?...

Hey guys,

So I’ve noticed these 2 ram kits are identical, apart from one being ”DC” and the other ”QC”... Now I wasn’t able to find any useful information regarding this, so now I’m turning here for help.

Umm, one is a 32GB dual channel hit (DC), the other is a 64GB quad channel kit (QC). Not quite identical, given the doubling of the kit size.

Ohhh.... Epic moment! Realized just after posting that it’s ”Dual Channel” and ”Quad Channel”. Epic fail!

Although, regarding ram, what does ”CL15” and ”CL16” mean? Is there any difference performance wise between them? Never gotten this lol...

CL15/CL16 is the latency/timing

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CAS_latency

There's a chart part of the way down the page for cross-referencing latency at different RAM speeds to see the effects
