i hope that these are not silly questions but i am curious how many times these tests were run? are these scores based on one run? or multiple runs with the final results just an average score? also, is there any conclusion given as to why 2-2-2-11 would run faster? and, would it be safe to assume that 2-2-2-11 would be faster on ANY nforce2 mtb? or it only pertains specifically to just for the one that was used in these tests?

I have a question What happens when you try and overlclock two memmory sticks with diffrent FSB like some 2100 and 2700? How about overclocking with two sticks in Dual Channel mode? How identicle do the sticks have to be? Is there anyway to overclock two sticks seperately?

From what I have read it seems to be any Nforce2 motherboard. 2-2-2-11 is fastest on my ASUS A7N8X Deluxe v1.04.

here's a good read concerning this: http://www.mushkin.com/mushkin/pop-up/latencies.htm

2-2-2-5 is a b.s. setting according to Mushkin. Should be 2-2-2-6, wonder if that's why the performance is degraded vs. 11? You think?

"Now imagine someone closes the book you are reading from in the middle of a sentence. Right in your face! And does it over and again. This is what happens if tRAS is set too short. So here is the really simple calculation: The second burst of four has at least to be initiated and prefetched into the output buffers (like you get a glimpse at the headline in a book) before you can close the page without losing all information. That means that the minimum tRAS would be tRCD+CAS latency + 2 cycles (to output the first burst of four and make way for the second burst in the output buffers)."

Any tRAS setting lower tRCD + CAS + 2 cycles will allow the memory controller to close the page “in your face!” over and again and that will cause a performance hit because of a truncated transfer that needs to be repeated. Along with those hassles comes the self-explanatory risk for data corruption. That one is not a real problem as long as the system is kept running but in case it is shut down and the memory content is written back to the hard disk drive, the consequences can be catastrophic. For the drive, that is.

I wish you would have explained the meanings of the numbers in more detail, especially in layman's terms too

But otherwise, thanks for taking the time to experiment. I'll go try some timings myself on some hyperx's i just bought :|

Mushkin 256MB PC3200 Level II is definitely more expensive than generic memory but not as expensive as 109,18 Euro per stick. In Europe you can buy it from e.g. www.jes-computer.de for 74.99 Euro.
