what would be the best way to test my ram for lower timings? I have them at [email protected] Can i go higher with lower timings? What the difference between dual and tri-channel?

best way to test would be Memtest86+

 

though Prime95 (blend, i think?) and linpack are pretty good indicators of ram instability as well

(NOTE: both prime95 and linpack also indicate cpu instability..)

 

 

you'll most likely have to up the voltage to lower timings and/or raise frequency

Yeah i've used prime95 to check my oc stability. But i was just curious if anyone would be able to give me a educated guess as too what the ram i have would be cable of of pulling off.

hold on. If your ram is DDR3-1600 Cas 7 7-7-6-18 like your link shows.. why do you have it set at [email protected] ? you RAISED the timings and LOWERED the speed ? the stock settings are better than those

ok that makes sense.

its just the way it was worded, made it seem like you set it to those speeds.

Isnt that a duo channel memory kit with higher required voltage then recommended for an i7?

Oh good catch, it's either the wrong ram or you are running at such a low speed to compensate the undervolting.

Per Mushkin 1.85-1.9V.
