Is this Ram OK for Core2Duo system? - Page 3

post #21 of 22
i have a question looking at this thread...how much of a balance should one have with timings and frequency? for example, is RAM running at 4-4-4-12 at 425 FSB on a C2D or 5-5-5-15 at 520 FSB better? (with CPU at the same freq. (1:1)) which one would have better overall performance and by how much? i always thought timings didnt make THAT much of a diff. especially if you sacrifice them and get more speed....hmmm....

I never read anything but I would imagine a whole another 650mhz or so on your CPU would yield much higher marks than a few ram timings. Since ram CAS plays a very small part in performance compared to the CPU or especially the GPU.

Actully I dont even have to guess i know becuase my 3D marks were raised about 400 points or so when i OC'd my E6300 a little more from 400FSB with 4-4-4-12 ram to 435FBS at 5-5-5-12
