Pls. tel me how can i lower my Ram Frequency from 333 to 266
Pls. tel me how can i lower my Ram Frequency from 333 to 266 and where i need to go?kindy advise me on how?
Quote:i have a ddr2 667 5-5-5-15-20 2T timing on stock, they said if i lower it to 4-4-4-12-161T it will be much faster???is it correct?do i need to lower or match the frequency?or i will just leave it that way?? 4-4-4-12-16 1T 333 frequency???kindly advise..
Higher clocks > Tighter timings.
You will lose a lot of performance going to 667 CL5 to 533 CL4.
The ram speed needs to be matched to your cpu's front side bus speed, ideally at 1:1 but using a ratio if not (note current Intel processors at stock speed and multiplier ie. 1066 fsb can't usually be run at 1:1). The auto setting in your BIOS will normally take care of this.
Slowing your ram to slower speeds than the FSB will severely slow your system down as you'll bottleneck it.
If you want to tighten timings, go to the manufacturers web site and look up your ram. Timings should be listed. Set these timings in your bios.
These are usually the guaranteed timings. If you want to try tighter timings, then increase the timing speed in steps of 1 unit and see if your computer a) posts and b) passes a test with memtest 86.
The most important element to try 1st is the jump from 2T to 1T. This can be adjusted before touching any other timings.
If your system passes both tests then those tighter timings are ok. If you want to try further, tighten them further. When your pc no longer posts or passes memtest, or both, thats the time to back the timings off a little until you get successful results in both once more.
Actualy i have 2x 8800gts 320 oc but im reserving it for the mobo that i am building right now....i only need a board, cpu then i will be up and running!any advise for a good mobo and cpu thats not that expensive but with a good and fast performance cause iam kinda short i spend too much on my gpu's...actualy i run every game on my rig on high and somtimes max without a glitch! only titan quest it is my prob?i exp hangs and lags but not that big only slight i want this to disapear, i think with a right settings it will run smoothly.
