Latency discrepancy?


Recommended Posts

I just received my Twin 2X2048-8500C5DF and everywhere I look it says 5-5-5-15, but on the actual memory sticks it says 5-5-5-18? Why is that?





On the memory stick it says;



XMS2-8500 1024MB 1066Mhz 5-5-5-18 XMS8505v1.2 07311378


This is where I bought it... It appears to have been used (sighs)



whats the deal?

Both pairs have that printed on them?


Im still in the process of building my puter. How can I be sure it is a wrong label? Should I send it back?


Thanks Ram Guy!!!



I might be able to fire up my puter tonight, if I can, is there something I should look at that will tell me whats it is?

Yes you will need to adjust the settings manually to 1066MHz at 5-5-5-15 and 2.2 volts. With your motherboard you also have the option to set SLI-Ready Memory to "CPUOC MAX" and this will automatically configure all the settings.
