Tags: Memory RAM Last response: December 18, 2006 8:57 PM in Memory Share Statross December 18, 2006 5:25:01 PM there's this RAM here, it says it's 3-4-4-8-1 instead of normal 4-4-4-12 or whatever...what does this mean? it's pretty expensive for 512 http://www.savastore.com/productinfo/product.aspx?catal... More about : question mpjesse December 18, 2006 8:11:04 PM Those are the timings. Unless you're overclocking, get normal 4-4-4. You won't see the difference. rwaritsdario December 18, 2006 8:57:56 PM After the four widely knowned timings there are several other subtimings, the "write recovery time" is the first of those subtimings and what that 1 represents. Treat this as regular 3-4-4-8 memory. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
