something odd

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My son crashed the other computer I have. So I pulled the 512 pc 3200 ddr33 chip out of it and replaced it with a 256 mb ddr400 chip out of good machine. Put the 512 chip in my good comp, giving me 1.2 gb of RAM. Now, here is the kicker. The 512 chip is ddr 333 with timings of 3.0-4-4-8, the other 3 ddr400 chips in it have timings of 3.0-3-3-8. But, for some reason my comp is running faster than it did before. Can anyone explain this or am i just speculating?

Well, it could be that the added RAM is offsetting the lower speed (they are all running at 333MHz now).

All 4 sticks of ram are running at 200 mhz (cant change it, stupid sony mobo). Well, I was speculating..It just seemed faster. 3dmark05 confirmed that my system went form 1889 to 1857. Not much of a drop, but a drop none the less.
