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


DDR2-800 5-5-5-12

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.

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.
