So basically I bought 4x2GB of G. Skill RipJaw 1600mhz DDR3 memory. My computer automatically set the memory at only 1333mhz and the timings at 9-9-9-24-2N, but I went into bios and bumped up the memory to the factory 1600mhz and then I noticed that the timings automatically changed as well to 11-11-11-29-2N. I was just wondering if I should just leave the memory timings at 11-11-11-29-2N and are these timing better than the factory 9-9-9-24-2N?
When you set the speed faster, then the timings will default to a slower speed. Your memory, if all is to be told, is probably faster running at 1333 with the lower timings that with the higher buss speed (which really makes no difference in real world use, nothing, nada, zip) and the slower timings.
People buy 1600mhz memory so they have overclocking headroom when they overclock the processor, not because the 1600mhz memory is 1 iota faster.
My god, how many times a week, or day, or even an hour can this question be asked. Guess I better go to bed, I feel like I am getting a little cranky.
