RAM latency

Hello people,

i currently have 2x512mb sticks of ram in my PC. i read on the net that 1T command rate is faster than 2T. my ram is set at 2T.

what i need to know is if there is any risk in changing it to 1T, and if there is, how will i be able to test that everything is stable & going to work properly? would memtest do the trick? will my ram overheat?

thankyou for your time, much appreciated :)

Don't waste your time. Speeding up the RAM timing settings produces a minimal improvement (or just crashes your system).

Instead slow down your RAM timing. Then push the system FSB and RAM synchronously to a higher speed. 10% is usually possible. Of course this can crash your system too and overheat your processor.

Best option is to quit reading overclocking articles and get a job or work some overtime to pay for a real upgrade. ;)

lol thanks for the info guys, i have a job & my pc is powerful enough, just thought i wasn't getting the most out of it (without overclocking). :)

lol don't misunderstand, i'm quite happy with it :D

just wanted to make sure that i was running at max speed without compromising stability

Not really:

General concensus - don't do it.

Optional extras - if you must try it.
-Worst that can happen is that CMOS reset is required.
-Alternate option to tweak speed is retard timing and OC FSB.
- And we all lust after your system.
