buying new memory

  1. Okay I have a question.
    Here is the memory that I currently have:
    512 MB Corsair XMS PRO model #: CMX512-3200C2PRO

    I want to add another stick but I need to make sure it has the same timing and everything.

    1). The model # is the same on this one

    2). But there is this one too

    Here is the main question:
    In my BIOS the memory timing is AUTO and it is currently:
    CAS latency 3
    Min RAS active time 8T
    RAS to CAS delay 3T
    Row prechange time 3T
    Row to Row delay 2T

    According to Corsair's website my module should have timing of 2-3-3-6.

    Should I change the timing in my BIOS to this? If I do that I think I need to buy the first module that I listed. If I don't change the timing, will the second module work?

    I don't know much at all about changing memory timings, so I appreciate any help.

    I wouldn't mess with RAM timings in the BIOS. Leave it as it is if it's working fine, since it's very easy to fry memory by maladjusting the timings.
