ram timings?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Does your ram run any different temperature wise when making the numbers lower in your bios?

No, changing the timings will only change performance, not heat output. Voltage will determine heat output of ram.

No, it's about the voltage that's applied that generates heat.

Lower, but it comes at the cost of stability.

It's better to have lower numbers. Depends on how high is your oc too.

This my first time ever messing with memory. I just got 2 gigs of Corsair XMS 2 667 for my test rig. I dont know why but it says it can go to 4-4-4-12 but i got 5-2-2-4. Is that better than what it was suppost to be. Im totally clueless about memory timing. What does each number mean by chance?

From what I've read it depends on what your processor is.
If it's an Intel, then high speed are best but,
If it's an AMD, then low timings are best..

Ideally a high speed with low timings is best
