I'm not even sure how to ask this question... yet. I need an education basically. This thread here and this ram tuning thread at HWbot
got me interest in how memory works, and frustrated that I don't have the knowledge (or tools?) to "conquer" optimization of a ram OC.
I want to be able to manually optimize DDR4 memory in BIOS of "consumer" PC's, but my google-fu is lacking as I'm not sure what questions to even ask. Where's a good place to start educating myself to understand and completely demystify:
- DRAM training
- The definition and application of every configurable memory timing option
in any given Intel 100 series motherboard
I'm just a hobbyist builder with no technology education - where do I even start? For now I'm watching youtube videos on digital logic basics, hopefully so I can better understand more advanced info later (such as this?
). Am I barking up the wrong tree... do I need to get a computer science/engineering degree... idk what subjects to investigate at first. All I have now is some limited PC building experience and a basic electronics understanding. ANY pointers to good books/articles/key terms would be super helpful to at least my lacking google-fu.
I've breezed through all the OC guides, but I really want to understand ALL the memory timings in depth.Edited by Unclefred - 1/16/16 at 8:32pm
