mrnoodle Posted November 17, 2005 Share Posted November 17, 2005 I just got a corsair 1gb (2x512) value select kit for my x2 3800+ HP. The Corsair memory is DDR PC3200 2.5-3-3-8 and the memory in there before (come to find out) is 3-3-3-8. My system is now running at 166Mhz (2700 in bios). Using CPU-Z it says that the memory that came with the system has a CAS Latency of 2.5 when running at 166Mhz. So, are all four sticks of ram forced to run at the same Latency? If so, am I better off sticking with 2GB of ram @ 166Mhz or sending the Corsair Ram back and trying to get Kingston ram that is 3-3-3-8 or even try to eventually get another 1GB kit of the Corsair later? I am fairly savvy when it comes to simple troubleshooting and stuff, but these specifics of memory have me a little confused. Any suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated.
