Overclocking Ram question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
currently i have my ram 1:1ratio with cpu which leaves it underclocked at 777mhz with 4/4/4/12 timing. would it be worst if i changed my ram to 900mhz 5/5/5/15 timing? as this will no longer be 1:1 ratio but the memory is at a higher speed (i have already test it at 900mhz and its stable)

It would be close. The best thing to do is run some memory benchmarks with everest or sandra and compare the two yourself.

If the 900mhz speeds are stable and passed memtest then use those speeds.
And then

Unless you are doing so already, I would test the RAM on 1T timings. If it is stable, you will have far better performance that upping the clock speed a little. The 1:1 ratio is desirable in any event...

My RAM running at 800Mhz on timings of 4-4-3-11-1T gives me optimal memory performance, superior to what I can get at 1160Mhz with looser timings and a 2T command rate.

What's the difference between 1T and 2T?
