I recently bought 2gb (2x1gb) Corsair TwinX2048-3200XMS-PRO memory with
timings of 3-3-3-8 by mistake. I meant to get the 2-3-3-6 version. I
thought I'd give it a try at the faster settings anyway before sending
them back. They seem to be running fine so far. I have memtest86
running at the moment and will let it run for 24 hours, and then try
prime95. I am also running them overclocked at 216mhz rather than
200mhz (DDR433) which is even more surprising. I even tried it breifly
at DDR466 and even that seemed okay in windows running Sandra benchmarks.
Does this seem likely? I keep expecting the memory to just start
falling over, but so far its seemed rock solid at that speed. I don't
really intend to run them overclocked in terms of Mhz, I just figured if
they are solid overclocked, then should be fine at normal speeds (with
the 2-3-3-6 timing).
The system is a MSI K8N Neo2 with a AMD64 X2 4400 CPU.
I could still send the memory back and spend the extra on the 2-3-3-6's,
but feel reluctant because it is running fine.
Re: CAS3 stable at CAS2?
Thanks for your response.
5 hours so far on memtest86+ (test #5 mostly) without error, though I
think a 24 hour run will be needed before I feel confident with it.
What are the timing specs of the XMS Pro module you mention?
