So I just got a cheap 32gb ram kit off amazon. It's like $150 for the proper spec ECC ram of 4, 16gb dims. Timetec is the brand. I originally had the stock 16gb of 4 dims. I ran a Geekbench test before the switch and got 3949. After with the new ram I got a slightly lower score, like 3918 or something...I didn't write it down. :/ Kind of a bummer...but I was kind of expecting this since I had read that the Error Correction process adds an additional step for the ram and thus, is a bit slower than non ECC? I just want some opinions. Would you keep the 32gb? I was thinking or getting another 32gb later on for 64 total. Should I instead use the largest non ecc ram? Get 4 8gb chips instead to have a max of 32gb of quicker ram? Im not 100% sure that 8gb chips are even available in non ecc. Maybe someone can answer that. I'm not so technical...apologies. Also I just want to add I did try mixing my new ram with a couple of the 4gb old Mac chips but it just beeped at me and wouldn't boot. My intention for the ram was to speed things up in general Lightroom / Photoshop. But also to get that sweet extra 1 FPS gaming in windows. Maybe its just that I have bottom shelf ram? I'm curious if OWC or crucial $$$$ ECC ram would make any difference. Thanks for reading. Any expert opinions are welcome.
