How to configure DDR1 RAM to its best

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I had installed Kingston DDR400 PC-3200 2X256MB (Dual-Channel Kit), I'm still new at overclocking world, is there any guideline to configure the right timing for my system?

Well one thing you could try is tankguys.biz, they have a ddr maximiser. You should also try ctrl+f1 in the bios.

Lol, huh?

Why does he need a DDR Maximiser?

The SPD timings should be on the labels of the chips or available online.

Yeah i know the default SPD timing (3-3-3-8), but i'm trying to reconfigure the whole timing to (2.3.2.7) and in CPU-Z my RAM was detected as PC2100 instead of PC3200

What's the actual speed that CPU-Z says your RAM is running at?

Seeing as you're running a Pentium 4 with 133FSB as default I think you should try to get your RAM running 1:1 by trying to get your CPU up to 200FSB. That way you won't be wasteing memory bandwidth, and then you can work on your timeings.

Reconfiguring RAM like that is going to take forever to get the best combination and your not going to really see any increase in speeds...I wouldn't bother TBH

I have that same memory (just in 512's)

Leave the stock timings.

Its is NOT good for overclocking......

Ya I have some of that, it won't do much. Also, many other DDR rams as well just won't do 2 CAS. I agree with tactic, that you should max your OC first with somewhat looser timings, then worry about the timings. But I doubt you'll get 2CAS with those sticks, sorry.
