PC 2700 or 3200? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
my FSB is 150, thats the only "speed" it lets me change, but my timings are 2/3/3/6 as opposed to 2.5/4/4/8. Is this any good?

Get CPU-Z @ www.cpuid.com and compare your settings to the SPD specs on your RAM. You may find a correlation to your timings and the speed they are running at.
his motherboards ddr standard is too low...
it doesnt support a ddr divider higher than 1:1, and since his fsb is so low (its a K7 i believe) it doesn't support ddr333 or ddr400. some K7's supported ddr333, his simply isn't one of them.
as long as its in dual channel it should be fine...
what does it benchmark in sisoftware sandra?

and also, what do you do with that compy? if you do a lot of gaming... then you may want to upgrade that video card. its old. also, a lot of the time memory size matters more than memory speed. (i just happen to have both )
(of course, it costs alotta $$!!)

i thought socket 939 were the first to support dual channel though? oh and fade2green514 he's asking about ram not wanting his pc flamed

of course, it won't run at ddr400 if its ddr400 ram. it simply underclocks. my friend did something similar. lol
then again, upgrading the motherboard to get maximum bandwidth is suggested. maybe the proc too.
If you are referring to my post..please read it again slowly.!..

You will note That the term used was it will support a max speed of 266MHz.

These are good timings, but if you could set something like 2-2-2-5 would be evan better. I sugest you to activate the seature called "spread spectrum" in the bios, I know I gained total stability by using it.

for fade2green: The sis 735 chipset doesn't support dual channel, it supports sdr PC100, 133 and DDR pc1600, 2100. This mobo in particular has 2SDR slots and 2DDR slots and can handle up to 1 GB of ram, not more than that.

for mootin: the first dual channel chipset for AMD was the nForce1, but this one was quickly replaced by nForce2 due to some stability issues/bugs

not really CPU intensive gaming, though, i kno that i need a new GPU, i'm savin up the money, getting there. but then again, if i were rich, i wouldnt need to OC! ^_^
