Ok, I've got a question here...I've found my max overclock (367 orthos stable) and now I'd like to tighten my ram timings a bit (running them 4:5). They're rated [email protected] so there should be loads of headroom (http://www.corsairmemory.com/corsair...8-8500C5D.pdf).

Now, first of all I couldn't find ""RAS activate to precharge" or "DRAM write recovery time" in the guide. Guess ASUS just uses different names for them.

So, my questions are as follows:
1. CAS latency is the most important, right? Should I lower this as much as possible until the memory tests (memtest86) starts failing and then up one notch before working on the others?
2. Will memtest fail if I go overboard, or will the computer only be more unstable?
3. Should all of these values be lowered as much as possible, or is there any that would benefit from being kept stock or even increased?

Thanks for a good thread!
