What on earth is tRFC?!
I just got a Foxconn Blackops to replace my ailing P5N-D board (and will buy a DX11 ATI card for it in march-ish....)
While i was overclocking my cpu, i managed to get to 3.2GHz, but my RAM timings are confusing me a little....
my RAM is a patriot viper DDR3 1600 MHz kit, a 6GB i7 kit, but in my infinite wisdom, i figured a) it was cheap, b) it was 6GB and c) it ran on lower volts than lga775 DDR3 so less stress on my power systems....
All is well and good now, but I did notice that my ram timings are as follows:
but this shook me: tRFC: 74!!!!!
Could someone tell me if tRFC is supposed to be that high?? I know tRC in DDR2 is about 25-30-ish, but I dont know if that really high timing is slowing things down or not.....
the command rate is 1T atm, so no issues with that
Ive currently got it perfectly happy at 3.2Ghz with no problems whatsoever (Q9450, 400FSB)
Also, does anyone have any experience with this board they'd like to share?
