Ram timings

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Dear

I'm the proud owner of a new system. (See My system below)

If I run my system at stock settings with the XMP profile i get 1600Mhz 8-8-8-24-T2
I overclocked my system and let my bios set timings automaticaly.
Now I get 9-9-9-24-T1.

Normaly I would go straight to te 8-8-8-24 as specified by the XMP profile.
But after some reading I guess 9-9-9-24-T1 will outpreform 8-8-8-24-T2.

What should I choose??

Well, is 8 8 8 24 1T stable? Have you tried it? Obviously it would be ideal.
Why upgrade?

"Obviously"?

"But after some reading I guess 9-9-9-24-T1 will outpreform 8-8-8-24-T2."

OP: Lower numbers are better when it comes to timings. Try setting it to 8-8-8-24 and see if it works. If it does, that's fine. A lot of the time, when a BIOS is set to automatic, it will set your RAM to run slower than it's meant to run, all you have to do is just set it manually.

Now testing 9-9-9-24-T1 with Intel burntest stress Level: Max and runed 15 runs with no errors. And is still going. Will try 8-8-8-24-T2 tomorrow.

If both are stable I'll try 8-8-8-24-T1.

If I have to choose between 9-9-9-24-T1 and 8-8-8-24-T2 what will preform the best??

Those will definitely run 8-8-8 24 1t. Dominators may not be the best overclockers, but they will do that easily. Might even be able to lower the tras down a bit from 24.

Uh, what do you mean by "obviously"? Yes.. that's what I said. Are you disputing 8 8 8 24 1t would be better than 9 9 9 24 1t or 8 8 8 24 2t?

I'm pushing my memory higher. Now running at 1740Mhz 9-9-9-24-T1.

If i can get this stable I'll start optimizing the timings.

No, I'm not.

You said that "obviously 8-8-8-24 would be ideal". It may be obvious to you or me, but if you look at the OP's first post it seems that they were under the impression that 9-9-9-24 would be better, so it wasn't obvious to them that CL8 would be better. That's all I'm saying.

@OP: Nice one getting the speed up

I would just push the speed as high as you can at 9-9-9-24-1T to be honest.

now running @ 1700Mhz 8-8-8-24-T1.

Now running memtest86+. If it passes i'll try 8-8-8-20-T1.

Is memtest86+ a good test to see if your memory can handle the timings?

It is. And IBT/Linx is also a decent memory stress test.
