Need Help with memory timings Tags: Memory Last response: July 30, 2008 12:46 PM in Memory Share kayvon July 30, 2008 10:56:34 AM I have an idea of how they work, but i see no differences between lower timings and higher timings. So im asking you guys. i have 2x2 Ocz Sli ready ddr2-800mhz ram. And i have an overclocked q6600 at 2.8ghz, as well as an overclocked 8800gt 650/950. Do these look like proper timings? More about : memory timings auscanzukus July 30, 2008 12:18:01 PM Looks relaxed to me. If you think the ram is capable, tighten the timings to 4-4-4-12 or lower. Do memtest prior to booting windows. evongugg July 30, 2008 12:33:17 PM Those timings look like SPD timings. They should be fine, sanctioned by the manufacturer. You won't see a great deal of difference with timings IMHO.

If you can drop it to CL4, you will see a 20% reduction in the time required to access data from the RAM (12.5ns to 10ns). Unfortunatly, this only equates to about a 1% increase in real world performance. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
