Which speed is better

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I dont know much about ram and could you tell me which one of these settings is better. Also my e6300 is oc'd at 2.4 both of these setting seem to be stable according to orthos Here they are.

1#

FREQ: 343.7 MHZ
FSB: DRAM 1:1
CAS# LATENCY 5.0
RAS# TO CAS SELAY 4 CLOCKS
RAS# PRECHARGE 4 CLOCKS
CYCLE TIME 12 CLOCKS


2#

FREQ: 429.5 MHZ
FSB: DRAM 4:5
CAS# LATENCY 5.0
RAS# TO CAS SELAY 5 CLOCKS
RAS# PRECHARGE 5 CLOCKS
CYCLE TIME 15 CLOCKS

So which is better? And how can I tell what speed my ram is running at. I have DDR2 Corsair XMS 800. What speed am I running at?

#2 is better if your FSB is 429 mhz. But your ram should be able to do 429mhz at 4-4-4-12 at least

no my fsb is 343 because if I take it higher it requires more volts I guess because if not it will freeze at the windows boots screen so you think I should tighten the timings?

Uh yeah, it's called overclocking. Give it some juice, that RAM has room for more.

2.2v so it has enough power to run w/o errors.

i have that same ram (given you have the PROMOS IC), and im running it at 1028MHz.

and if you dont know too much about the PROMOS IC, lets just say people are struggling getting 900Mhz.
