Can't Decide on what to get - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Micron D9GMH's have proven themselves to be the best overclockers in mainstream memory modules. Many people have hit 1100-1250MHz with them at 5-5-5-15 timings and 2.2-2.3v. The Brand name isn't important when choosing memory, it's all about the IC's the memory uses.

DDR2 800 has either 4-4-4-12 timings or some cheap versions have 5-5-5-15 timings. You must consider both the speed AND the timings. DDR2 667 at 3-3-3-8 should perform about the same (probably a little better) than DDR2 800 4-4-4-12, especially in video games. Plus these sticks can easily overclock to DDR2 800 4-4-4-12 if you want, and can far exceed 1100MHz with 5-5-5-15 timings.

They actually got the memory to DDR2 800 with 3-3-3-9-1T timings, and they were using 4 modules! 2 modules should overclock easier than 4. Now will yours overclock exactly as theirs did? maybe not, but it should be close.
