I will be buying the Asus P5K-E motherboard and E6750 and need 2gb memory for it. The system will run at stock speed for now. I will buy 800mhz chips. My questions are:
Which memory company?
What timings will run best at stock speeds?
What timings will run best at 400mhz FSB?
What memory will work with the P5K-E board?
What memory will run at 1.8 volts and offer the best timings?
Are timings of 4-4-4-12 the best speeds to look for?
I have OCZ PC2 6400 (ocz2p800r22gk) timings are 4-4-4-15 1.9 to 2.1 volts, If I run this memory at 667mhz for a 1:1 ratio, will I be able to drop the voltage to motherboard default of 1.8 volts?
1. Crucial Ballistix.
2. Depends on the board, you'll have to try different timings yourself and benchmark your system with Sisoft Sandra.
3. See above.
4. Pretty much anything.
5. Ballistix PC8500.
6. See answer number 2. PC6400 that has cas3 timings will be better quality than PC6400 cas4 but more expensive, it's often cheaper to buy PC8500 and underclock it.
7. Yes, you should be able to.
