Latency vs. MHz (Ram) - Page 2

Just oc your memory as far as you can to get maximum bandwidth, and then tighten your timings so that latency is equal to, or slightly lower than, latency at stock clock (with timings tightened).
Mightone is on the right track...fastest speed @ the lowest timing, should produce the best results. Although, if any of you have read Pauldovi's article..you might already know that there is little to no gain in certain areas of latency/speed. I believe the consensus was that around 800mhz and 4-4-4-X-4 was producing outstanding numbers for both the bandwidth tests and the latency.

So I guess you can check your bandwidth at stock settings, then overclock and mess with timings and see which combination results in the highest bandwidth.

The higher the bandwidth, the better your machine should perform in the rest of the benchmarks.

You guys do realise that the PC number (eg, PC8500) IS the theoretical bandwidth. ie, 8,500 MB/s. Memory controllers arent perfect, so actual bandwidth will be slightly lower. Dual channel allows for greater bandwidth without increasing clock I believe.
