I bet you could lower the timings a bit if you used option B. Have you tried 4-4-4-12 @ 940? What CPU are you using? This determines whether the ram will run at 1:1 or not.

Best of Luck

For an Intel platform, you cant care less.
For an AMD platform, you desperately need the best timings possible.

my sys spec:
asus m2n32-sli deluxe
x2 4000+ @2700mhz 270x10 1.5v

it is a craps shot as to if it will boot @940 so I think i have to under clock it and lower the timings. I have tried to substantially raise the fsb and lower the multi, but it seems that 290 is the max and that is sketchy. I may try to raise it to 285 or so, but it doesnt make that much of a difference with the memory.

I am currently testing the 760mhz with 3-3-3-9 timings, so far so good.

any other suggestions? would active coolers on the ram with 2.4-2.5v solve the problem?

Thanks
