Corsair Valueselect running at DDR2 400@2-2-2-12 timings

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I heard that the fourth timing when refering to memory had almost no impact on performance but a huge impact on how high memory can be clocked, so I decided to test this out and by leaving that at 12 (my memory is rated for 3-3-3-9@DDR2 400 and 4-4-4-12@DDR2 533) I was able to accomplish DDR2 400 at 2-2-2-12 with only 2.00v vDimm! Is this crazy or what?

Ehh... Your Tras is waaayyyy too high. Even with the other timings at 2-2-2, a Tras set at 12 is waaaaaaaaayyyyyy to slow.

lmao

I have recently (30 seconds ago lol!) decided to screw overclocking and set everything to settings set for maximum stability and cold temps, my CPU is at 1.3vCore at stock speeds and my RAM is at DDR400 with 3-3-3-9 timings and 1.8vDimm (AUTO) and I am happy with it since I really dont notice much performance difference between 3.00 and 3.75 anyways, kinda sad.

If it is true about the insignificance of the 4th number, then yes that is grade for DDR2!

Im surprised it not only booted but was also stable at 2-2-2 timings! But this RAM has never ceased to amaze me, it was rated for DDR2 533 at 4-4-4-12 and 1.8v but with only 1.9v and the same timings I passed DDR2 667!

Is it really safe to run memory at 2V?

2v is a very small amount of voltage for memory, high end DDR memory is often rated for 3.3-3.5v! In my experience, even the cheapest Value memory from any good brand (kingston included) should be alright up to about 2.4v, don't quote me on that though and yes it will void any sort of warranty you have on it, mine was only rated for 1.85 lmao.

How will they ever know if you put it above the stock settings?
