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.
