Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 2x4 Lowest Timings

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I would like to know what the lowest timings are for my RAM. My old RAM went down to 7-7-7-21 and I would like to do the same with these. Is it safe to try? If it doesn't work, do I do what I would with a CPU and up the voltage? If so, what is a safe voltage for my RAM?

The DIMMs or package should have the timings and voltage listed on them. You may also find the latencies, voltage at the Mushkin website?

You can certainly try the lower latencies and see if it will boot. If it does I'd run memtest86+ from a floppy, CD or flashdrive to check for errors.

why from an external source? it says the CAS is 9... does this mean there is 0% that I can lower it to 7?

It depends. Some RAM makers rate their RAM at the lowest latencies it will run stable on most PCs. Other mfgs. leave a generous safety margin. Each CPU/mobo/RAM combination can respond differently. What works for one person is not guaranteed to work for someone else's hardware. The only means to know how tight of latencies will work on your PC is to change the BIOS settings and stress test for stability.

would this work? 8T 8T 9T 23T ?
