Confused about RAM timing 533 vs 400 DDR1

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi there everyone. I was wondering if any of you guys know anything about which memory is faster in timing and mhz speed.I have two set of memory they are both OCZ brand name. but the frist one is PC4200 lable as OCZ PC4200 DDR 533 2x512mb dual ch kit 2.5-4-4-7 while reading the CPU-Z software in the tab of SPD both show OCZ5331024ELDC-K timing table show 263mhz 512 MB at 2.5 6-6-10. I can't not find another kit of this memory anymore OCZ doesn't sell tham anymore that sucks. anyway so i went to the Bios and happend to set the memory to 2/2.5 250MHZ dual ch would mean 500 right? but i have the timing at 2.5 4-4-7 2T as it would post in 500 dual ch memory mode from the Bios. so i went to windows and look at CPU-Z under memory said frequency 244.8 mhz. and rest would be 2.5 clocks and 4-4-7-14-2T-16
but my AMD 939 Opteron 180 denmark code name toledo overclock by 201 FSB or mhz to even up that 250 MHZ memory frequency and the memory frequency at 250.8mhz and CPU at 2420.8mhz and then i have another set of memory though it OCZ PC3200 EL plat 2-3-2-5 1T dual ch kit SPD would post OCZ400512ELPE would do 220.8MHZ really good i could't tell which is faster by viewing windows, i know the tight timing would make it faster right? thinking to get another kit to make 2 GB but thes mix OCZ 2GB wouldn't be a good idea. but they work together at 2.5 clocks and 4-4-7-14-2T-16 because of the OCZ 533 DDR1 memory wouldn't go lower to 2-4-4-7 or 2.5-3-3-7 or mix either way you want to test out. i did everything. but to bad my OCZ 533 wouldn't do under 1T and and tighter timing. but to get another kit of 2x512 MB dual ch memory would it be better off if i get another OCZ400512ELPE and have all 4 memory pulling some tight timing at clocks at 2.0 3-2-5-8-1T-9 at 220.8MHZ or get a crucial memory PC4000 2x512 dual DDR kit 2.5-4-4-8 2T and try to match the timing that my high $ OCZ 533 can reach the speed of 500 wel 250.08 Mhz and clocking timing would stay clocks at 2.5 4-4-7-14-2T-16 and still have 500 DDR speed but which would thes go faster?. i'm confused so bad i still don't know what to do with memory issue likes this. i would likes to have or see memory DDR1 at 500 MHZ speed to bad they don't make tham at 2-2-2-5 1T at 500 would be nice. or do i need to end up and wait for 4 GB 2-3-2-5-1T OCZ EL and do 220.8 MHZ? or go with that idea about that get another 500 to push 500 DDR speed at a higher timing? i couldn't fiuger out speed and timing does do the speed. but to me to seam likes 2-3-2-5-1T was fast likes pageing ways to refresh likes picture to show up in time of the speed of the ddr500 but it at 400 wel 220.8mhz, but when haveing or pushing thoes 533 at the timing at 2.5-4-4-7 2T seam likes it doing the 400 at the tight timing so i'm confused guys what would be better off doing?

First off maybe some paragraphs might help you get more replies

DDR500 means it can run at 250mhz.

The extra speed you get from 2.5-4-4-7 at 250mhz than at 220mhz with 2-3-2-5.

I would stick with your OCZ at 250mhz, the stuff in your sig, at the moment at least, and if you want 2GB then sell your current stuff and buy 2 x 1GB matched sticks
