Hey,

I have been fiddling around with some RAM timing etc because I don't think my RAM is running as quick as it should...I was wondering what scores i should be expecting from the Memory benches in EVEREST (if you don't/can't use everest name something else and i'm sure I can try it)...I have 2X512 sticks of DDR-533 RAM and here is what CPU-Z says about the timings...



These are the scores i get in EVEREST....
Memory Read: 5147MB/s
Memory Write: 6596 MB/s
Memory Latency: 58.9 ns

Any help to see if the RAM is running like it should is much appreciated

those timing are fine because i dont think they make ddr ram with a CAS of 2 dont tweak the timings unless you are POSTITIVE you have ram with a CAS Latency of 2

Thanks for the reply, my motherboard isn't all that good for tweaking/overclocking so my CAS can only go to 3 and no lower

These are in detail what I have set in the BIOS currently...

CAS# Latency - 3T

1T/2T Command Timing - 1T

TwTr Command Delay - 2T

Write Recovery Time - 3T

Precharge Time - 2T

Row Cycle Time - 17T

RAS to CAS R/W Delay - 3T

RAS to RAS delay - 2T

Row Precharge Time - 3T

Minimum RAS Active Time - 12T

--------------------------------

Here is the lowest settings i can go on them...

CAS# Latency - 3T

1T/2T Command Timing - 1T

TwTr Command Delay - 1T

Write Recovery Time - 3T

Precharge Time - 2T

Row Cycle Time - 11T

RAS to CAS R/W Delay - 3T

RAS to RAS delay - 2T

Row Precharge Time - 3T

Minimum RAS Active Time - 8T


Thanks,

Considering you are running DDR2, those timings look good to me.

What brand and model of memory do you have?

The thing is my ram gets about 1400mb a second faster than his in the memory read test, i thought DDR2 was good, yeah ok its not the fastes ddr2 but still its ddr2 and mine isnt lol.

Yeah, like Anubis said, his RAM is supposedly lower speeded and speced than mine, yet his gets a fair amount more than me...The RAM is Kingston Value DDR-533 (I know not the best but need some money before upgrading it)
