K8N Neo2 Platinum
BIOS v1.4
2x512 Kingston HyperX 3200 DDR 400 in dual channel
Athlon 3500+
WinXP Pro SP2

My post screen shows the following memory timings:

tcl: 2.5
trcd: 3
tras: 8
trp: 3
T2 memory timing
200 MHz memory clock

Are these the optimum settings for this hardware?

You can leave most as they are, but there is a big performance boost if your
memory can run using T1 instead of 2 ticks, the gains with the others are small
and not worth changing but that T2 definitely is worth changing to 1.

Go to: http://www.corsairmemory.com/ and look on the first page for a
..pdf file called "Latency Settings Explained". It's a good write-up
on how the different timings affect performance.

Thanks, Mike and Folk. I changed my CAS latency to 2 and the memory timing
to 1T. Things seem a tad snappier now, but could be my imagination. I guess
I should have run a benchmark.

yes, use WinRAR´s built in benchmark & check others results on my site
under comp/benches -updated ...

Got some good info on your site.

Been wondering why anything between 1.6 to 1.7VCore was HOT and
1.7+VCore was COOLER. This is on an A64-4000+, now running stable @
2600Mhz *8D Honestly no noticable difference, going to drop it back to
2500Mhz 1.57VCore later on I think.

I knew it had to be a thermal thing! *8D Stumped me till I had seen your
post got me thinking, Cheers!
