i run my mem at
7-2-2-2.5
and i've read in alot of post that nforce2 boards do better at
11-2-2-2.5
would this help me get a higher FSB
and would i gain anything by changing it.
at my current settings i can't go any higher on my fsb or windows
won't boot
sorry i'm a noob:D

By setting the T-RAS to 11 you gain memory bandwidth, your memory works faster basically. ideally you need to get that CAS Latency down to 2 instead of 2.5 as this is the most important timing for AMD systems.

on my crucial memory the cas latency is 3 but i've read reviews that it will run 2
i've tried 2 with my current settings and it wouldn't boot

Crucial isnt the highest quality of RAM, it may need some more voltage to run with a CAS Latency of 2.

i set it at 11-2-2-2.5
and it booted at 225fsb WOOT
haven't changed CAS yet
but mem v has been at 2.8
do you think changing from
6 to 11 would allow me to go to 2 CAS

Im not to sure if it would, wont the memory run CAS 2.0 as it is? I should think as 11 is a slacker timing it would allow you to get to CAS 2.0 even though it gives more bandwidth?

Give it a try and please post your results!
