Memory Timings

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone I recently just installed 8gb of memory on my desktop. Patriot DDR3 1333Mhz (2) 4GB (2x2GB) Kit, so I have a total of 4 sticks of memory. What software can I use to check the timings are correctly being used. The system says the "installed memory or (RAM) is 8GB however I am suspicious the timings are off. I want the full speed of my memory that I paid for, so any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone!

Refer to the manufacturer with your ram and get there timings listing off there webby. CPU-z is handy for this as it will report the bank and the ram, as well as the timings that it is interpreting... from here you will be able to confirm that the ram is set to the mfg settings or if (auto) in bios is caulking it up... which happens... beyond that you will need to adjust the fbs and timings to what you think you can get out of em. Ram like anything else comes in batches, some sticks are simply capable of more than others from the same batch... and how that will affect your total system speed at the end of the day comes down to how 'you' set and test that ram...

or you could just let it go...

Thank you everyone for you reply I am unfamiliar with CPU-Z however I did as you suggested and installed the software. Here is the information presented under the Memory tab. First under General it says; (Type-DDR3) (Size-8192 Mbytes) (Channels # - Dual) (DC Mode-Unganged) (NB Frequency – 1999.9 MHz)

Now under Timings it says; (DRAM Frequency – 533.3MHz) (FSBRAM 3:8) (CAS# Latency CL – 7.0 Clocks) (RAS# to CAS# Delay tRD – 7 Clocks) (RAS# Precharge tRP - 7 clocks) (Cycle Time tRAS – 20 Clocks) (Bank Cycle Time tRC – 27 Clocks) (Command Rate CR – 2T)

Anyone have any clue as to if my memory timings are functioning properly based on this information? And also I am curious how to learn what you do with this information to know if your timings are correct? Thanks again everyone for your help!

Rated speed/timings of your memory?
If they're 1333 9-9-9 don't bother changing from 1066 7-7-7, they're both generic spec and perform pretty much the same and make no difference. Save yourself from the trouble.
