can it do 2 2-5-2 at 233? :)
then I need and want it

I bet not, because these are aimed for high fsb, not timings.

The Senile Doctor 26th December 2003 11:00

it's 466 memory... not so high nowadays...

DDR500 is still very high, PC3700 is not that far off. This stick has improved memory timings over previous version

CL2.5 3-3-7 vs CL3 4-4-8

next bump, we'll maybe have cas 2 2-2-6

I don't think we will see this happen, older memory chips appear to have better performance then the new ones when it comes to low timings

BH-5 vs BH-6 or even CH-5.
BH-5 is the oldest in that set and it yields the best results.

but you are right about the timings, without tight timings they can ramp up the memory speeds all they want.. any older PC3200LL which can cope with 233+Mhz at CL2 2-2-5 will blow past anything.. you'd had to reach speeds of 280+Mhz with lower latency ram to even come close.. but I seriously doubt you can reach that with any ol' 2.6/2.8 P4 without resorting to LN2/Phase-change cooling.

but they are getting there.

if you see what my OCZ can do @ high speeds, this wasn't possible 2 months ago without +3.5v.
