What's better? Tags: Memory Overclocking RAM Last response: September 22, 2007 8:02 PM in Memory Share Chaos-Energy September 22, 2007 4:11:20 PM Just wondering which option is better. 2GB RAM @ 533Mhz & 3-3-3-10 timings (1:1 with FSB) OR 2GB RAM @ 800Mhz & 3-3-3-10 timings. Both are at stock volts (1.82v I believe) and I probably won't be overclocking my memory.

I have 2x1GB 800Mhz but should I run it at 533Mhz with 3-3-3-10 timings and synchronous with the CPU FSB or at 800Mhz with 5-5-5-15 timings? Sorry for the huge timing mistake. | Report abuse badge Memory Expert September 22, 2007 8:02:44 PM Chaos-Energy said:I can't get 800Mhz & 3-3-3-10 timings.
