P4... Actually, DDR550+ (PC4600+) is 275+ FSB... I'm currently running at 285FSB (5:4) so i need PC4600+ mem to go 1:1...

2x(CL + tRCD + 2)





more like (2 x (CL + tRCD)) + 2



2x (2+2) + 2 = 10



.. my two-cents.



EDIT:



but i run my mems at 2-2-2-11, which gives me the best bandwidth. and it breaks the rules given all the formulas.



2x(2+2+2) = 12

2x(2+2)+2 = 10



just somewhere in between.

jarod, nope.....i won't change it just to fit someone else's settings =).....



this means that while 11 will work, it's not the best settings. but of course it works in your rig but that doesn't mean that my formula is incorrect. everything has its margin for error....



like i said, your tRas can be higher, but should not be lower than the result of the formula.



for a mushkin 2-2-2-6, this can not be 5. while it might work, 5 just isn't the best settings. the same with your timing, 2-2-2-11 is ok, but the best, as per the formula is concerned, should be 12. ever wonder why a lot of 2.5-4-4-8 or a 2-3-3-7 are rated like that? because that's the best settings. but shouldn't the 2.5 be 8.5 right? that's where the margin comes in =)...and in your case, 11 might be the margin...but hey, i can be wrong ;)....

macg, the Geils Ultra are rated 2.5-4-4-7 and not 2-4-4-8 or 2-4-4-7, but if you care to read my post carefully, there is the so called margin 2.5+4+2=8.5. however, for the case of Geil (and with some OCZ EB), I call them "anomalies" which I mentioned somewhere in this thread as well.



much like how some mobo manufacturers enable PAT on i865 boards, some memory manufacturers can do these settings. and it helps to understand HOW these manufacturers were able to do it......

oh yeah, my mistake.. i forgot to point out that SPD for the ultra plats at ddr500 is at 2.5-4-4-7.  running it below 232 or 233 MHz i think sets SPD at 2-4-4-7 on a p4p800-e board with Perfomance mode set to standard and MAM to auto.  forgot to point that one out as well..



i have FSB @ 200 using a 2.4A, vdimm to 2.8 and spd to 2-4-4-7, MAM set to auto.  i have loads errors on memtest but it seems fine running windows. anybody know how to fix this?

@macg



Your memtest errors are because of running it at CAS 2. Set it to 2.5. Also try setting your FSB to 201. At 200 FSB and MAM set to turbo I get loads of errors.
