Memory bandwidth

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
What is considered decent memory bandwidth on a a8n32-sli with 1gb of Mushkin memory running dual channel. When i did the original memory bandwidth test, i was using 3-3-3-8 at 2t which was pulling 4075mb/s. I turned the setting around, and am at 2-2-2-6 at 1t running at 166MHz. This gave me 4597mb/s. Should i keep going? Wheres a decent amount to stop?

Oh, don't worry about overclocking your memory. You are highly unlikely to need the extra bandwidth. It is possible to slightly reduce your latency by running at a higher speed, but it takes a very long time to find the optimum settings.

if you're a gamer i'd run 166 with the tighter timings = lower latencies
i'd up the fsb about 5mhz increments then run a few passes of memtest
repeat
once you start getting any errors back off about 5% then do a full stabilty test
