Texas Jack Posted April 18, 2007 Share Posted April 18, 2007 Today I bought a extra set of TWINX 1024MB PC3200 C2 PT. I had already a set of TWINX 1024MB PC3200 C2. After installing, the bios detects the ram as DDR333. After manually set this to DDR400 on timings 2-3-3-6 2T, my system runs stable. I have a motherboard MSI K8N NEO4-F, with a AMD X2 4200+ (stepping E4). Did a few test with 3Dmark2006, and no problems so far on the first sight. Just a little loss in points (~8-10 points less). The game STALKER runs now smoother then before (this was the main reason I bought a extra Gig). My 2 questions now are: 1) Can I chance the Command Rate to 1T with these four dimms? With the first set I always ran stable 2-3-3-6 1T, but I read on the internet that in case of using 4 dimms, you must use 2T. I'm a little carefull, so I don't break anything... 2) What's the technical difference between the 2 sets? The first set is C2 (black heatsink), and the new set is C2 PT (platium heatsink). Both of them are 2-3-3-6 latency's. Tonight I test my settings 2-3-3-6 2T with memtest86+ V1.70. I keep an update... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
