What timings should I be runnning with my DDR2 Ram?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Right now my P4/531 is OC'ed to 3.8Ghz with a 257*15, and 1:1 514Mhz for my RAM, but the timing is on auto and set at 4.0-5-5-15, are there better settings? I was reading about looser setting but I wouldnt know where to start and dont wanna damage my 2x1GB PC-4300(533Mhz) sticks.

What are the stock timings for this kit of RAM (Check the specs of the manufacturer, or run CPU-Z and check the SPD tab)

Seems like CPU-Z is a bit confused.

Seems like stock settings are 4-4-4-12 for this RAM.

You definately should be able to run those timings, since your speed is below stock. You might try somewhat tighter. It won't damage your rig; your rig simply will not boot if timings are too tight.

According to the specs below, they are 3-3-3-8

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820141200

I would have said 4-4-4-12

I'll double-check elsewhere.

Yeah.. this site says 4-4-4

http://www.users.hu/termekek/2000055...+PC4200+533MHz

...maybe try 4-4-4-12 first. It seems to be a solid timing set for DDR2 RAM.
