Memory Speed or Tighter Timings?


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Which of the following is better?

 

Frequency: 208.2MHz

CL: 2.5

TRCD: 3

TRPD: 3

TRAS: 8

 

OR

 

Stock

Frequency: 250MHz

CL: 3

TRCD: 4

TRPD: 4

TRAS: 8

 

This system in question is running TWINX2048-4000PT. I am trying to optimize my OCing of the system. I currently have my AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ running at 2.5GHz with LDT*HTT at 1052.

 

Thanks!

AMD systems do light tight timings, but I would put my money on the higher frequency giving better results in this case due to the larger difference (208 vs 250).

 

When in doubt, run benchmarks on both settings and use whatever gives the better results. Preferably run benchies that closely match your intended usage. Also, if you like to game, enable the fps meter in your games or use a program such as Fraps to check your frame rates. A bit of trial and error goes a long way when it comes to overclocking.
