Help with memory timing...

Hey all,

I just bought a Gigabyte EP45-UD3LR motherboard and this 4GB DDR2-800 (PC-6400) memory from here:


Now, if I query that memory part number at the ocz website, i get two different results for timing - one at 5-5-5-18 and one at 5-5-5-15. I can't tell which it is supposed to be. At least both seem to be at 1.8v.

5-5-5-18 here:

5-5-5-15 here:


So, I took a guess and, in the bios, I set the timing to 5-5-5-18 at 1.8v. Everything seems to work fine. Below is a screen shot of some stats.

Can anyone one tell which memory I actually have, ansd what speed it's supposed to be at?

Also, My CPU was only working at 1.7Ghz in the bios, so I changed the multiplier to 12, and that brought it up to 2.5Ghz - the processor is a Pentium E5200.


I am not an overclocker, nor am I trying - I just want to make sure it's running at its native specs so it's optimized....I'm running Vista x64 Home Premium

Thanks in advance,

Re: Help with memory timing...

You have the CL 5-5-5-15 sticks. If you look at your screenshot--and thanks for doing that, btw--you'll see the OCZ2G8002G on EasyTune5's window. CPU-Z also displays this model number. Apparently, you purchased the 4GB pair, so you actually have two model numbers. One number is above which is the model number of EACH stick, and then when OCZ packaged them together, it was the OCZ28004GK. The "K" stands for Kit.
