Good timings to shoot for?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey folks.

Currently running 16GB DDR3 1866 G.skill sniper series memory.

I've kept the stock Voltage, and changed timing to 10-10-10-26 right now. Doing a prime blend test as we speak. So far so good. But I've clocked down the speed to 1600Mhz. As I was unsure if 2500k can run at 1866. If it can. I'll raise that up tomorrow and blend test again.

But I was wondering what a good timing goal would be for either 1600, or 1866.

Thanks for any help.

at 1600, i ould first try for 9-9-9-24 1T then see if you can go as low as 8-8-8-24 1T
1866 mayby 9-10-9 but not sure at 1866.. its all trail and error realistically thumb.gif

The 2500k's controller can run 1866. Most can run 2133mhz and a fair amount can go up to 1400hz.

You have 16gb though, if it's a 4X4gb kit you'll be able to get to 1866mhz with a slight bump in voltage and some timing improvement with stability. It'll be slightly better if you have an 8x2gb kit.

If you're down-clocking to 1600mhz that kit will easily run 9-9-9-24. Try it smile.gif.

Edit:

8-8-8-24 1T 1600mhz is Great!

9-10-9-26 1t 1866mhz is AMAZING.

Seriously though, a latency change of 1-3 won't matter AT ALL in the real world (gaming). Having 8-8-8-24 opposed to 9-9-9-24 might give you one frame...

the sniper 1866 is speced at 9-10-9 timings no? Thats what mine are running at.

Unfortunately there is little to no system performance gain by OC'ing DDR3 RAM as it's not a system bottleneck. The only means to see what latencies and frequencies will work with your CPU/mobo/RAM is to test, as each set of hardware is different.
