  1. Hello,

    i recently added another kingston hyperx 512mb memory module to my original one and found out (using cpuz) they are running at different CAS timings? one is apparently at 2.0 at 200mhz and the other is apparently 2.5 at 200mhz? is this right? if its not what do you recommend i change?

    Specs

    AMD Athlon 3400+ Newcastle core
    1gb Hyper X
    80gb Sata
    9700pro 128mb
    MSI Neo3 Gold (nforce4)

    Change the slowest module to the faster one, unless the board is specifically requiring the slower one.
    But if you are having no problems otherwise, do not change a thing. This sort of a latency problem is not really a problem on most boards.
    Some games and graphics programs will require memory in matched sets to be fully utilized, but if you don't get error messages, do not worry about it.
