Hi folks, I realize that there may not be oodles of increased performance to gain from tweaking my RAM with Ivy Bridge. But I am fascinated by the effects that I have seen tweaking the Latency Boundary - a setting which is hardly ever mentioned. My experience has been that lowering this setting from what I believe to be my board's default of 7 to 5 reaps by far the greatest bench score boost of any of the tweaks I have tried with my RAM. Lowering any/all of the primary timings and/or the Command Rate does almost nothing compared to the Latency Boundary set to 5. I have never seen a "secondary" setting do this before, and I'm just wondering how I can improve my stability with a LB of 5. Do any of the voltages have a more direct impact than the others? Or can I improve my chances at running a Latency Boundary of 5 by loosening any particular timings? I know that I can run at LB5 if I lower my CPU OC, but that would defeat the purpose. I'm grateful for any advice, or direction to pertinent material that anyone can provide. Thanks!
