4x1 GB Ballistics arrived - Page 2

Why 4GB, I would of used 2GB's unless I'm hosting some XXX video site (Yes the movie XXX) not the other thing that most of you OCN users do

Well for one because I can. Na really because vista was using a ton of my resources and while playing alot of games it was harder to do things in the background then with XP so while I bought these I figured why not get 4 since the prices are pretty good (not as good as the other deal a while ago).

True I may not use them for a while but besides upgrading to a quadcore and doing a stepup on my vidcard in a couple of months I want this rig to last me a bit.

On to the ram I am still playing with it, running it at 500mhz 1:1 with 4-4-4-9 and 2.15v (all 4 sticks). Gonna have to do some tweaking later on and get some faster speeds out of it.

Isnt it better to use 2x2 instead of 4x1 for ocing in general? I thought that 4x1 would put alot of strain on the memory controler and create alot of extra heat and would require more V.

Might require more voltage (whether its significant or not is arguable)
But it WILL require higher timings :\\ - (which is why 2 x 1GB is better for Ocing)..
(not that Intel CPUs are great fans of timing (i,e not very dependent on them because of the type of controllers the chips use.)

What are the OPTIMAL timings you think you can achieve will all 4 friend?

Not necessarily true. The Mushkin 2 x 2gb kit I'm trying to get has similar timings to these Ballistix. Of course, that costs a LOT more money.

I saw a review on these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820146691 where they got up to 556fsb.http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/mushkin_6400

What are the OPTIMAL timings you think you can achieve will all 4 friend?
It seems with all four sticks running I get the best benches (everst/super pi/sandra) when I am at 500fsb 1:1 with 4-4-4-9 timings and thats with 2.15vdimm. They dont go as high as with just 2 gigs in there. If I drop down to a 9 multi and run the same 4ghz 445x9 and run the ram faster say 539mhz with 5-4-4-9 I actually get worse scores then running 500fsb with 1:1.

Now with 2 sticks I get far better running looser timings and doing say 600mhz on the ram with 5-5-5-13 timings. So with the 2 sticks a 500 fsb and 600mhz ram is the best, with 4 sticks 500fsb with 500mhz and tight timings is the best.
I cant seem to get the ram stable without upping the vdimm for 4 gigs at 600mhz. I could do it with 5-5-5-13 but I need more then 2.2vdimm which I dont want to run right now. Dont feel like rmaing my ram in the first couple of weeks.

I think with all four I owuld need 2.3 tio run 600mhz 5-5-5- or so. I may get it up and going when I get some better heatspreaders on them since with four you get alot more heat build up on these guys.

Still some aewsome ram and I am having a good time so far. High fsb and high ram speed is the best, timing smatter some say in super pi and a few other performance benches but these intel dont care as much for timings.
