I thought you just said 4300mb/sec in another thread?

Stock timings was 2.5-4-4-7? Those are some loose timings there in the middle and considering you OC'd it 37 up from it's original and managed to tighten the timings that kind of tells you right there that it's good, although with 237FSB I would have thought a higher score in sandra than 3200/3200

Think mine gets like 3600/3400 at that FSB.

Yeah start up is the best. Well with PC3200 RAM it doesn't make sense to get 4gb transfer.

I don't think the memory controller on the AMD64's would have THAT significant of an impact.

PC3200 is supposed to be approx 3.2Gb hence the 3200 in the name

but even then it generally benches at 3000/2800

No because bandwidth is always lost in anything you buy that requires communicating between two things especially..

You get a 3mbit connection for example in cable, and chances are you won't actually get a solid 375kb/sec kind of deal, although some of it depends on the server you are downloading from and whether or not they can send you that bandwidth.

EDIT: Oh yeah and generally thats why they say 'UP TO' a maximum of 3.2gb/sec
