Can you damage your memory by changing the timing

Since nobody on the memory forum helped me i'll ask it there.

my timing are currently 7-3-3-4 and i want to know if i can damage it (its pc 3200 ddr)

My own beast: Athlon 2700xp+ (oc: 3200xp+ with 200fsb) , Radeon 9800pro (oc: 410/370) , 512mb ddr400. SO MUCH faster than my last computer (pIII 550......)

  2. No, it won't damage your memory. If your memory can't do your selected timing, then your PC may become unstable. Then you have to just change settings again for stable operation

  3. I’ve never damaged memory, but I’ve burnt some processors. You should be able to run at quicker timings than that. Try 2,3,3,7 if not try 2.5,3,3,8. <A HREF="http://www20.tomshardware.com/motherboard/20040119/index-02.html" target="_new">see here for timing descriptions.</A>
