Hi,

First post here and a quick query.

I've got a 2.4C @ 3.2 on a P4C800 Deluxe. It's got two sticks of OCZ Gold PC4000 at 2.5-4-4-7 on a 1:1 ratio at 265FSB. I've tried going higher but I think I'm getting limited with the lack of VDimm (not modded it yet). (The PC just resets when you log in or just after, knock it back a couple of mhz and it's all fine, as is Prime etc etc.)

Which (in general terms) would provide better performance, 1:1 with slack timings (like the above) or 5:4 with tight timings, or is it generally dependent on the type of app etc I'm running?

For instance if I get say, Mushkin PC3500 I could (in theory) run 2-2-2-5 at 270FSB with 5:4 divider. My OCZ *may* go to 270FSB 1:1 but only give me 2.5-4-4-7.

Thanks all.

the ocx mem ha a cl of 2.5and is really fast. just keep it at that in the bios. then put up ur fsb so you can overclock it. you dont need new memory you are fine. I have ocz 4200 and love it


for overclcoking the 2.4c 1:1 ratio is the best belive me. peopel will say oh get 3500 with a cl 2 but belive me u are set.

I would try running that OCZ at 2-3-2-6 and see what FSB you can hit 1:1. 2-2-2-5 isn't the best timings for a P4 system. With a volt mod you could likely hit 275-285 FSB 1:1 and then timings don't mean $h1t!

Thanks for the replies.

I thought exactly the same but over on another forum I was advised to go PC3500 as OCZ4k Gold wasn't 'good memory'.

Seems ok to me.. :rolleyes:

:D
