Is this true?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Is it true that high latency timings and low latency don't affect the core 2 duo cpu's as much as it does in AMD cpu's? Coz I'm tight on budget and am thinking of switching my Corsair TWIN2X1024-6400C4 for a cheaper, more efficient 2GB RAM. Any suggestions? Just around the price range for this kit. TY

It doesn't really matter that much but it's best to run your RAM at CAS 4-4-4.

Now, you could get DDR2 800 CAS 5 and usually that RAM runs at 1.9v or less, then you could run your CAS 5 at CAS 4 but instead of the 1.9v (or less), with 2.1 or 2.2 v and also depends on your RATIO, usually a 1:1 or a 4:5 is the best.
