Default Ram Timings and Speed?

ok ive got 2 questiong. first is how can i find out or change my ram timings. second is i have my fsb at 210 right now so in cpuz it says my ram is at 210 as well which i know except my ram is ddr3200 which is supposed to be 400 and i heard that this ram is stable at over 500 so i was wondering if my ram is underclocked right now im sorta new at the ram timings and stuff.

DDR = DOUBLE data rate

200x2 = 400

500 would be shown as 250MHz

BIOS of course

lol ya iknow but people always say like 2-2-2-3 so that means your would be 2.5-3-3-7 right? if so then mine is 3-3-3-8 is that bad?

3-3-3-8 is valueRAM timings.....in terms of stock speed 2-2-2-5 vs 3-3-3-8 will mean nothing when it comes to noticeable performance.....mine are rated 2-2-2-5 at DDR400, but mines running DDR540 right now, that's why it's 2.5-3-3-7

if yours are 3-3-3-8 at DDR400 then they aren't going to want to overclock because they aren't high quality chips.

Don't be too sure nubius...

I have overclocked value ram termendously, but you have to have at least 2.8 volts and a great deal of knowledge

Yeah if you're talking about that 232MHz with 3-4-4-8 timings than I'm very sure....that's not 'tremendously' by any means.

Most valueRAM will be prone to frying really quick under more voltage and stress.

well I guess it's not technically their lowest of the low if it's XMS, but it's not high performance....of course 2gb won't OC very high even if you had high performance.
