Hi, I have 8GB of DDR3 1600 CL 9 Ram from Gskill. My motherboard(Asus M5A99X EVO) showed it as 1600 in bios but showed as 11.0-11-11-28-39-1T
it is 9-9-9-24-2N but im not sure about the bank cycle time. how do I find out. Also as for the 1T 2T/1N 2N I have heard that with 2 sticks its better to run 1T/1N is this true?

33 is the optimized bank cycle time. I have tried both 1 and 2T, 1 and 2N and see no difference. If there is a difference I am unaware of any. I believe its supposed to be at 2N regardless.

how did you find out its 33? plus. is T and N mean the same because my bios shows it in t.

Because its the RAM i have and I did the research a while ago when I was wondering the same thing you are.

The settings 1N, 2N and 3N coresspond to 1T, 2T, and 3T CRs respectively.

I have done the benches on my own systems and found that 1T is slightly better for my 8gb (x2) setup but if I use the same 1T settings on my other 4ghz (x4) set up 2T runs about just slightly better. I am hearing that 2T is designed for 4 or more sticks of ram and better stability but again the benches I saw were so very small. Try both and you will see what I mean.

how do I figure out all the other timings? or does it matter as long as its 9-9-9-24?
