Memory Timings on Unlinked FSB

  1. Just a quick question on memory timings. If I am bringing my FSB speed from 1066 to 1333mhz, and not linking memory frequency, can I still use the default timing values for my RAM? It looks like my BIOS sets them to 5-5-5-15 (2T) by default with 4GB installed, at least that's what CPU-Z reads. I don't want to start overclocking my RAM, just the FSB speed, so if anyone could help me out that would be great.

    You can still use your default timings that are recommended by the ram manufacturer. As long as the ram speed and fsb of the cpu isnt linked it shouldnt be a problem

    Yeah that whole overclocking thing isn't workin' out too good anyways, thanks for the info though.

    Ram timings are very tricky.. I wouldnt worry about making your computer a smige faster but more on trying to get it to run stable..
