Memory Speed vs Timings
I posted a thread a while back about some DDR4 overclocking on my system and I'd like to post and update this thread with my results as well as performance gains/losses.
As we all know; at least in the past with DDR3 Intel systems typically love speed over timings but is this still the case?
My current system is as follows:
CPU: 8700k @ 5.2GHz
RAM: 16GB (2x8GB) G-Skill Trident Z RGB 3000MHz CL16
Board: Gigabyte Gaming 7 z370 (On water)
Boot Drive: 970 Evo (Soon to be the Evo Plus..)
PSU: EVGA 850w P2
As for the settings I will be using I currently have two setups and am considering a third/fourth based on what people want to see.
All configs will have
System Agent: 1.050v
Config 1: Pure Speed
Timings: 16-16-17-36 1T, tRFC 526
Config 2: Mixture
Timings: 14-15-15-35 1T, tRFC 401
Config 3: Stock (XMP)
Timings: 16-18-18-38 2T rRFC 526
Config 4: ???
*** To come ***
I'm welcome to any suggestions for this and to see what I can do.
I will do some synthetics to start with, I feel that I need to tweak my mixed timings vs speed overclock a bit more however.
