Hey, I'm looking upgrading my old computer and have a memory question.

What is the difference between "Corsair micro 2x1024 6400 C4DHX" And "Corsair micro 2x1024 6400 C5DHX"

I know the C4DHX is $25 more.

Is there really any big difference?

Thanks.

if I had to guess, c4 is cas latency 4, while c5 is cas latency 5. if you have 5 right now stick with that. getting the cas 4 won't help speeds as it will have to lower latencies down to 5 match your current ram.
