Memory Timings ?

  Bleep 15:38 01 Jan 2005

Hello I’ve been over-clocking for the first time and have seen my Memory timings change from:

CAS Latency (tCL): 2 clocks @133 MHz, 2.5 clocks @166 MHz
RAS to CAS (tRCD): 3 clocks @133 MHz, 3 clocks @166 MHz
RAS Precharge (tRP): 3 clocks @133 MHz, 3 clocks @166 MHz
Cycle Time (tRAS): 6 clocks @133 MHz, 7 clocks @166 MHz

Over-clocking Settings

AMD 2500 Baton @ 1980MHz 180MHz FSB - Temp 34 Idol - 43 Full Load
2 X 512MB PC2700 Crucial - Micron Ram Single Channel Mode)


Frequency: 180 MHz
FSB/DRAM Multiplier: 1/1x
Channels: Single
ECC Diagnostic: No
CAS Latency (tCL): 3 clocks @ 180MHz
RAS to CAS (tRCD): 4 clocks @ 180MHz
RAS Precharge (tRP): 4 clocks @ 180Mhz
Cycle Time (tRAS): 8 clocks @ 180Mhz

Are these new timings above, Ok or should I alter them?

Thanks in advance.

i wouldnt go voerclocking memory, can be dangerous, but if you insist get some heatsinks for them, ebuyer do some good ones

The system is stable and running happily @ 2000MHz / 181MHz FSB.

GPU PNY 6800 GT 256MB @ 400/1.1GHz

It just been through Sandra burn-in and 5 hours of Farcry @ Ultra High settings 2XAA 2XAF, with not one pause or crash.

I'm just trying to find out wether CAS Latency 2 changing to CAS Latency 3 is an improvement or loss in memory performance timings.

lower CAs is better
