    One hell of a difference in sisoft anyway. Thanks to A64 tweaker I was able to get 1T command rates for my RAM :). Difference was astounding.. 4500mb/s in bandwidth with 2T, and about 5400 mb/s with 1T. With a few other tweaks I did (just in my bios), I changed my DDR from 2.5-4-4-8 to 2.5-3-3-6 with the 1T. All stable, I can't believe it! With that I also overclocked my CPU from 2ghz to 2.4ghz (I had to lower the HT multiplier to 4x though to get it to boot, as well as change the ratio to 2/1.66 for 240/200). With all those settings, I jumped from about 10700 to 11400 on 3dmark03.

    Is that considered good? I'm still an inexperienced OC'er (I know all about it, just haven't experimented a lot, that's all). Things are a lot more responsive, loading times are noticeably faster. I can't say it's a huge difference in games though, in Oblivion maybe like 5-8fps difference on average.

    GJ. My memory puts up a fuss with 3-3-3-9 1T @250MHz with 1.8v (factory is 1.85v lol). Timings are 4-4-4-12 now

    Seems my system isn't completely stable with that overclock, most likely the memory (cheap PNY memory I got a long time ago before I knew about memory timings). I have everything set back to default except the CR which is still at 1T. That 1T is the difference maker really. My cpu is back to stock, too

    DDR memory gains a lot by using a 1T rating...not so much with DDR2 though.
