Official Phenom II x2 500 Club! - Page 81

post #801 of 4289
Okay thanks for the response, i'm pretty happy with my RAM, seeing as i only had to go from 6-6-6-20 to 7-7-7-20, to go from 1333Mhz to 1567Mhz.

I really want to get 4Ghz stable with this chip, it WILL happen !

Have you tried a benchmark on the ram with the 2 different settings? From what i've heard and seen, the tighter timings and slower speeds are blowing away the faster speeds and looser timings....at least on the ddr2..... interesting to find out with the ddr3

Getting off topic on the CPU a little here but with tighter timings, I assume ram voltage must go up? And what's safe for stock cooling on the ram (since it doesn't have a temp monitor)?

Well you might not necessarily need more voltage. Every ram kit is different. Trial and error works best As far as voltages go, I probably wouldn't go much past 1.8v or 1.9v depending on what your kit is originally rated at.

That link.... so what is the verdict.... I looked but it is confusing.... it is talking about the NB speeds and the timings... what about just the ram speeds and timings?

Basically it shows that in some situations 1333Mhz is better because of the tighter timings, while in others 1600 is better. It also states that speeds above 1600 are completely pointless, as it should be 1600 or less.

I think

The verdict is 1333mhz with tight timings is faster. When you set your memory to 1333mhz, it allows you to overclock the northbridge frequency higher. If you run 1600mhz, the IMC will be stressed more and not allow for a high northbridge clock. Basically fast ram is not needed on the AM3 platform, just high northbridge speed for best performance coupled with tight timings.
