well, i know right away what they are and what they stand for:
CAS – tRCD – tRP – tRAS
Column Access Strobe - RAS to CAS Delay - RAS precharge - RAS Active to Precharge Delay

i know that you want to have low values for the first three. and i've been told that the best value for the fourth number is the first + the third + 2. So, an ideal value in your case would be 6.

now, now......what they mean exactly..... hehehe
that i haven't read about in some time.... let me find a nice page for ya.

EDIT: Here ya go.....RAM Latency Explained

Thanks, I need to write that down and check my BIOS settings.

BTW, does anybody know what I should choose for my SD133 RAM: 60ns or 70ns.. does it depend on the RAM? wich is better (both seem to work fine)

Yeah I had trouble here too, about the RDRAM stuff.

I knew there was a dummy conducting stick, but I couldnt remember if it was manditory to have one that matches the RIMM.

You're the guy from that hamburger train, right?
