Corsair XMS2 on an AM2 build Tags: Memory Command Prompt Last response: July 11, 2006 3:37 PM in Memory Share symbi0nt July 9, 2006 1:38:23 PM 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?WebProdu... or DDR2-800 5-5-5-12 http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/ProductInfo.asp?WebProdu... 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.

The_Prophecy a b } Memory July 11, 2006 2:33:05 AM 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.
