  1. With most memory timings (except burst length and bank interleave) lower is better.

    Thus #1 is the best for performance.
    Beware though that #1 mem timings are quite harsh, so make sure the ram runs properly with those settings first (use MEMTEST86)

  2. Thanks LHGPooBaa :smile:

    What the last value means 1T , 2T ????????
  3. Tey are just more memory timings.
    2T or 1T are usully called "command rate" timings.. whatever they are.

    If you want to learn more, i suggest you read this guide to understand what all the esoteric settings mean in your bios.

  4. Thank you very much !!!!!

    :cool: :smile:
  5. Doesn't 2-2-2-5 performs better than 2-2-2-6? Or it's a typo?

    You never know how stupid you are until you have done something stupid enough for you to realize it.

  7. memory timings...2-2-2-5-T1 ( cant remember all of it but the 1st 2 is the cas latency, the last one is the timing, others are RAS and other 3 letter words which dont mean much 2 me :-)

    no 2 then no 1 are the fastest ones... but U will need top notch CL2 memory to do it stabily...

    Hmmm, wonder if I can get a valid page fault ???
    these invalid ones are far too commonplace...
  8. poobaa made a typo
