Few questions!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So im finished with oc my cpu and nb. So I thought about paying my memory some attention

But I need something cleared up.

NB speeds has NO inpact of timings(lower timings etc)?

Can I add more voltage to ram to get LOWER timings? Or is it just to OC the ram(higher speeds)?

If my specs are 7-7-7-24-1T which number should I start lowering? And in witch order?


Thnx in advance for everybody

I'm not totally sure about the effect of NB speeds, but I'd say they won't have much of an effect on OC potential. Try it and find out.

Adding more voltage can indeed allow you to get tighter timings.

The first number, called the CAS latency, is the most important.

dont forget your TRC also. Most people overlook that little guy and it can help quite a bit. It prolly set to something high like 34 or even 40 something right now....

Just for $hits and grins drop it like 15 and bench it without changing anything else

you might be able to rock 7-7-7-20-11 1T

If you can get to 6-6-6-18 or like 6-7-6-18 you'd be rockin! Good Luck!

Here's an article on TRC for ya: TRC GOODNESS

Well right now im stable @ 6-6-6-18-24-1T. So it looks good. Im gonna see if there is much performance difference in high speed/higher timings vs low speed /tight timings. I know amd prefer lower speeds and tight timings but wth, Ill do it for fun

Thnx for replys so far

Good work dude! What voltage you got em set at? The tighter timing should yield higher bandwidth for ya! And ya, the AMDs love the tight timings! You might even be able to go lower on the TRC

Lowering tRC too much can cause instability.

Generally tRC = tRP + tRAS.

Thats what I always thought too... The lowest can go on my board is 11, and it made it through 10 passes of memTest86 with 0 errors, and all the other benchies + a few hours of Crysis without a sinlge peep so I just left it...
Of course all HW is different though!
