Ok, I have a P4 Prescott core in an Asus MB. I have pretty generic Kingson and Corsair pc3200 ram. I had 2x512 sticks of Kingston in my MB, Dual Channel, and using CPU-Z, the memory was running at 200mghz, timing was 3-3-3-8. I bought 2x256 sticks of Corsair ram, rated at 2.5-3-3-8 at 200mghz. I threw the Corsair ram in, and my motherboard auto turned the frequency of the ram down to 167mghz, giving the overall speed of 2.5-3-3-7. My quesiton is, should I tell the MB to keep the ram at 200mghz to have 3-3-3-8 timings, or is it actually quicker to have the ram rated at 2.5-3-3-7 but have it running at over 30mghz less. Thanks for the input.

I would put it on auto if that option exists on yours. I am currently running ultra pc 3200 and I have the timing on auto. Good Luck!!

the best setting if your not sure is "By SPD" this will read the settings from a chip the manufacturer put onto the ram itself and set the speed and timings to what it should be.
