If I use 2 GB GOLD XTC OCZ ram with 2 GB OCZ SLIs would it be better than using the 2 GB OCZ SLIs alone???
SHould I just take out the GOLD XTCs and use the SLIs only?? OR should I keep both of them in?
I thought you were replacing the ram. You're adding more. So your best bet is to get the exact same ram even if it costs a bit more. You're guaranteed a working pair. If you throw in the SLI ram, it will work after some tweaking in bios. Give it a bit more joice in vdimm. That'll be 4x1GB.
Ah, it's AM2. So overclocking the new ram will take some time. I'd still get the exact same.
I was of the understanding that the tRAS needed to be withing 1 of the sum of the first 3. on other words 4+4+4=12 so 11 -13. The Gold flies in the face of that, 5+5+5=15 so 14-16 and yet they call out 12. So yeah, set it for 12 and run Memtest86. All that can happen is that the machine crashes and you reset the ram.
