Hey guys, I was hoping to get learn something here. I just stumbled up this thread. I have been overclocking my CPU and of course it I lowered my timings from the rated 6-8-6-24 to 8-8-8-22 while finding my stable OC. Well I set up two OC profiles, 4.0GHz w/HT and 4.2GHz without. Then I went back to tighten the timings, for not other reason than that is what I read to do here on OCN. Now, to the point. I ran maxxmem last night at 4.2GHz with these timings.


Then today I decided to tighten the timings to 9-9-9-24 to see if I could get a better score. I entered 9-9-9-24 and I could not get into Windows and got a 0x0000116 code so I read to up my ICH voltage a notch. I did that and also upped my QPI one notch to 1.32 or 1.3, for no reason really other than that is what I thought you needed to do when tightening timings. The results with tighter timings ended giving me a lower a score.


I thought tighter timings would give me a better score and lower latency? Sorry for the verbose post. Any thoughts or help would be appreciated.
Tighter timings means lower timings. You increased them from 8-8-8-22 to 9-9-9-24.

Oh man. I was only going by my CPUz and figured they were in order from left to right from worse to best(Could not think of a better way to put it)


So that means while I have spent the last few days getting my overclocks stable I had the memory set to a setting that was harder to get stable? 8-8-8-22? I just have to laugh. Out of the timings you see for my RAM what will be the best for my overclocks of 4GHz w/HT and 4.2GHz w/o HT?

So setting it back to 8-8-8-22 would be better than the 9-9-9-24 or 6-8-6-24?
I am pretty confused and I promise I have tried reading up on this. I really appreciate the input.

I've always found higher mhz made more of a difference over tighter timings on a x58 chipset. Some still prefer tighter timings. But either way you will only see difference it in synthetic benchmarks though. Currently waiting for my R3E to get here since i maxed out my R2E board @ 230 bclk. Then i will try it again.

6-8-6-24 might be a little bit better than 8-8-8-22. Give it a try. The looser timings will be easier to stabilize, but tighter timings will have better performance.

You could also experiment with 2000MHz 7-9-7-28. That's the beauty of overclocking. There isn't a sure way to do it, just experiment and find out.

I guess that .8 ghz makes the big difference between our results?

Edit: what does it mean when the colors reach the end of the benchmark. Some people have higher results, but the colors aren't reaching, while vise versa, some people have slightly lower read/write/access speeds, but their colors reach the end.

the main difference is that the memory(cache) controller on this new i5 2500k
will run at CPU clock= 4.7ghz.

at your i5 760 it runs at 3.2.ghz.

this +1.5ghz at the memory controller give that new cpu a Phenomenal Memory speed...

let your i5 760's memory controller run at 4.7ghz and you will get similar results...

How do you find the speed of the memory controller. By memory cache, are you talking about the L3 cache speed?

Would his cpu cache still run at 4.7 if he wasn't overclocked? Or is that number just a subtraction from his current OC.

Edit: Oh, is it just the NB speed?
