Corsair XMS2 on an AM2 build

http://www.guru3d.com/article/mainboard/348/17/

Have a read of that.

Then help me;

DR2-800 4-4-4-12, which I know how to push to 4-4-4-5 thanks to that article
http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/ProductInfo.asp?WebProductID=402849

or

DDR2-800 5-5-5-12
http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/ProductInfo.asp?WebProductID=255300

FOR $85 less.

Is $85 worth moving from 5-5-5-12 to 4-4-4-5?

And will these guidelines be okay boosting my 4-4-4-12 to 4-4-4-5? Would there be any specific CPU/M.board requirements?

'Memory 2.300V
HT CPU -> nForce SPP 1.300V
tCL (CAS) Latency 4 clock
tRCD 5 clock
tRP 5 clock
tRAS 5 clock
Command Per Clock (CMD) 1 clock
AsyncLat 5ns
MA drive strength 1.25x
MCLK drive strength 1.0x '

Both are EPP by the way, I intend on using them with a 590 board.

Many thanks.

  1. Anyone?
  2. i say go for it if you can get it down to 4-4-4-5.... i'd pay an extra $85 to lower my ram timings that much any day.

    Edit: Next time.... don't reply to your own thread trying to get someone to respond..... people find that annoying. Sometimes it can take awhile for someone to reply.... just be patient.
  3. Thanks, for both parts of the advice [:

    newegg has the corsair ddr2-800 5-5-5-12 for $198.

    the scan-UK prices seem high compared to that. i thought the pound was about 1.9 times the US$.
