P5N-E SLI Memory for performance Query Tags: Memory Last response: July 3, 2008 10:47 AM in Memory Share Arne July 3, 2008 8:47:05 AM SYSTEM DESCRIPTION: Windows 32bit Home Premium; ASUS P5N-E SLI; E6600 with Artic Freezer Pro 7; Corsair DDR-2 XMS 2x1GB; Corsair 750W PSU; Raid 0; SATA HDD's; Apevia X-Cruiser Case; 120mm exhaust rear; 80mm exhaust top; 2x80mm intake front; 80mm intake side; Antec GPU slot cooler. BFG 8800GT OC 512MB. I have OC to 2925 Mhz on the chip leaving DDR-2 at 800. Memory Timing: Corsair CM2X1024-6400 2x1GB tCL = 5 tRCD = 5 tRP = 5 tRAS = 18 CMD = 2 clock tRRD = Auto tRC = 22 tWR; tWTR; tREF; tRD; tRFC and Asynch latency all set to Auto Would I see any performance increase by purchasing CAS4 ram?
