Question about my timings
Aug 4, 2009, 1:00 PM
I have a question about my timings.
I have a Q9550 CPU and Corsair DDR3-1333 memory (
My motherboard is a Asus.
I OC my CPU to 8.5*400 = 3.4 GHZ, ans set the frequency of my memory to 400 Mhz.
My memory is running a 6-6-6-18
I made some tests, no errors.
Are those timings normal ? Can I lower them ?
What should be the best timings ?
Thanks a lot.
Always confused with this stuff...

The lower the timings the better so make them as low as possible.

yes thanks I will try.
I was just wondering if there is any theoretical timings for my settings, just to have a reference...

Unlink your memory and run your memory at 667 MHZ. Try tightening the timings and test with memtest86+ for errors.

Why 667 ?
It won't match the CPU FSB anymore (currently 1:1)?
And with a FSB at 667, I need a multiplier at 5 (for 3.4 Ghz), but the lower available is 6.
