    yup, agreed........i don't like running at high temps, and i want it rock solid stable.......ok, changed to 21x175.............but forgot to turn turbo off.........we only had turbo on to get to 22x, so, don't need it now.....

    ok, this memory is rated for 1600, 8-8-8-24...............and you have me at 7-7-7-21, 1400...........is this faster ?

    Slower, by very ittle. As I explained befre timings are about time, and the time is the same (10ns and 30ns), higher frequency is a bit faster. Nothing you should be concerned about, performance is much better tha it was at default with 1600.

    EDIT: 22x175 should be the same with a bit more DVID maybe, if stable that would be ideal.

    How we coming along in here after 29 pages LOL

    Starting to see what your cpu likes and dislikes yet?

    I think I saw chike say it run the stability test a little longer to ensure system is stable. Prime95 run for a few hours depending on test, LinX no more then a max of 20 runs at full memory. The first 1-5 runs is a good idea that the system is close, 10-20 for full stability.

    ok, back, was planting my tomato seeds, its that time of year ;)

    testing with prime blend now, 21x175, dvid/vtt as per ur recomendation, turbo off, runnin at only 1.2V (sweet), temps in low 60's.............hmmmm,22x175=3.85.......goin there now..........hehe.......hay, i can always drop to 21x175 if its shakey...........might have to turn turbo on to get the 22x again, lemmie see now........

    Ya chike isn't gonna stop til my CPU is black and smoking ;) jking............got it to 4.0 (3.96), but, a tad shakey and warm........so, dropping down to 3.85 22x175

    1000 / memmhz = time in nanoseconds one cycle takes.

    so at 700mhz that would be 1000 / 700 = 1,428571428571429ns, so 7 cycles woud take exactly 7*1,428571428571429ns = 10ns
    at 800mhz you get 1000 / 800 = 1,25ns. you can see 8 cycles also take 10ns

    so the time it takes to 'open' the memory stays the same, but when data is moved the higher frequency makes for more data pulses per sec, that is where higher mhz gets an advantage.
