Timings & Channels

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Just wanted to ask that should I use dual-channel with 2GB Kingston KVR800MHz DDR2 + P5Q Pro, and should I lose my RAM timings from 5-5-5-12 to 5-5-5-15?

i think i might have the same ram as you, have a look at my sig for current timings. 4-4-4-9 was unstable after 5 seconds of ORTHOS. i decided to keep the ram @ 400Mhz so i could get a 1:1 ratio to the FSB.

4-4-4-10 is it a faster than 5-5-5-12, because my PC goes too slow with the dual-channel and 5-5-5-15..

4-4-4-10 is faster than 5-5-5-12. they all refer to clock cycles for example my ram wait 4 clock cycles to read/write or copy data... thats my understanding anyway... can anyone else verify this. also dual channel doesn't mean double the speed.

ohh and my ram came stock 5-5-5-18 @ 800Mhz

When I was using the dual-channel, it was really slow to load the Windows XP and I wouldn't use it all and then changed back to single-channel and it was great!

I just tried with the 4-4-4-10 and didn't work, wasn't even booting and I think I can't even go with the 5-5-5-10.

5-5-5-18 @ 800MHz are stock RAM timings for Kingston KVR800 DDR2.

That is the dual-channel. I got one in the yellow and the other one in black (for single-channel).
