Over the past 5 years, our sweet spot has been DDR3 1600 and for good reasons; Crucial in the link confirms our testing and research we confirmed over 5 years ago by benchmark testing.
 
so, the next sweet spot is DDR4 2400 or DDR3 1600 and nothing more; yet we do concede the DDR3 2400 might be a good future option but the results show 1600 is fine for DDR3. the make and manufacturer is still GSKILL and CRUCIAL, the latter mostly for laptops and the prior DDR3 1600 DDR4 2400 for desktops.
 
read on about clock cycles and the math and plot chart to see at latency in the 15s are fine for DDR4 and latency between 9 to 11 is fine for DDR3.
