  1. Ive never been one to overclock memory too much or say that I am really familar with memory timings so here is my question:

    I have 2 gigs of Ocz Gold PC 3700 rev.3 memory
    I currantly have it running at 233 mhz at 2.8v ....OK

    now my question is what kind of timming should I be running them at ?
    currantly I am running at the reccomended timings of 2.5-3-3-8

    is that good ?

    I know my system defaults them to 2.5-4-4-10 when I enable the auto config in my bios.

    Like I said I am not too famaliar with memory timings so any help would be great.

    Also can somone explaid the differnce between 1T and 2T timming and what the benefit of either would be.

    Thanks a ton guys !!!!!!!!!

    Regarding 1t and 2t, 1t is better.
    Here's a benchmark on it.

    (the 4x512mb is 2T, the 2x512 is 1T).

    For memory timings, lower is better, and you can try experimenting with lower values and seeing if they work. You might not get any lower though, it depends how good the ram is. If you try a lower value and it works, then test with memtest to see if you get any problems.
