    Yeah it said that in the article.

    FYI "cost-effective" in the article means "cheap"

    Mozilla Firefox 6 Web-Browser Released

    If e-banking stops working because of the browser's version number, then there are some issue with that e-banking system. The security certificates should not expire like that!

    Mozilla Firefox 6 Web-Browser Released

    I am not really getting people's fuss about the way Mozilla is going with the version numbers. Who cares if they are jumping version numbers in integers or going in 0.001 increments! What matters is that the browser is not getting worse! Whether it's called 3.6.10 or 6.1, it's still performing.

    Mozilla Firefox 6 Web-Browser Released

    No problemo! I am running Firefox 8 Nigthly builds and man it's fast. It uses 30% less RAM than Firefox 6 apparently.

    For those complaining about add-ons compatability, download Nightly Tester Tools add-on until your add-ons are supported.

    AM3 CPU + 1600 MHz RAM = Uh oh..?

    1372 @ 7-7-7-20 1T proved to be a tad slower than 1648 9-9-9-24 2T. CPU/NB at 2200. I tried 1648 8-8-8-24 2T with 1.65V but the BIOS would display boot failure and force me to revert. I think this concludes my journey for now.

    AM3 CPU + 1600 MHz RAM = Uh oh..?

    I raised the FSB from 200 to 206 so the CPU now runs at 4.12GHz (1.376V) and RAM now runs at 1648 9-9-9-24 1.5V. Here are the results: I am going to try 1372 @ 7-7-7-20 1T and see if it's better than 1648 9-9-9-24 2T.

    AM3 CPU + 1600 MHz RAM = Uh oh..?

    The BIOS won't post with NB @ 2600 1.25V and RAM @ 1600 8-8-8-21 and 1.610V. I tried many times and had to clear the CMOS each time.

    AM3 CPU + 1600 MHz RAM = Uh oh..?

    These are old tests. I just got back home and I am going to get started now. Going for 8-8-8-21 first @ 1600.

    AM3 CPU + 1600 MHz RAM = Uh oh..?

    Here are my results: 1333 @ 7-7-7-21 and NB @2200 1600 @ 9-9-9-24 and NB @2200

    Thanks for all the information you provided. I will keep the thread updated with my tests.

    AM3 CPU + 1600 MHz RAM = Uh oh..?

    How do you personally test the stability of timings? By stress testing the CPU using prime95 and such?
  16. xsever

    AM3 CPU + 1600 MHz RAM = Uh oh..?

    I'll test and see how much performance gain there is and then decide whether it's worth it or not. Thanks again.

    AM3 CPU + 1600 MHz RAM = Uh oh..?

    So you're saying raise the NB and achieve better timings with 1600? What are the safe limits for the NB?
  18. xsever

    AM3 CPU + 1600 MHz RAM = Uh oh..?

    My CPU is a C3 as confirmed by CPU-Z. If I were to overclock the NB further, wouldn't the gain of 1600 over 1333 remain relatively the same? I am trying to stay away from overclocking the CPU/NB and 1600 seems to be a better performer in that case. I am open for tips though.

    Currently at 2200.

    AM3 CPU + 1600 MHz RAM = Uh oh..?

    Done using AIDA64 Memory Benchmark Tool. RAM/Timings Read Write Copy Latency 1333 7-7-7-21 8945 7484 11248 50.1 1600 9-9-9-24 9095 7486 11524 49.5

    AM3 CPU + 1600 MHz RAM = Uh oh..?

    I benchmarked 1333 with tight timings vs 1600 with stock 9-9-9-24 and the 1600 configuration beats the 1333 one in both bandwidths and latency. Care to comment? Am I missing something?
  22. xsever

    AM3 CPU + 1600 MHz RAM = Uh oh..?

    NOTED. We can then conclude that 1333 & tight timings > 1600 & regular timings. Thank you!
  23. xsever

    AM3 CPU + 1600 MHz RAM = Uh oh..?

    I'll go with that and start fine-tuning as I progress. So this should be better than running the memory controller of the 955 at 1600? I mean if there is no harm to the CPU, I would rather run the RAM at their full speed.

    AM3 CPU + 1600 MHz RAM = Uh oh..?

    If I change my 1600 RAM's speed in BIOS to 1333 and use 1333 timings, would I still need to modify the NB to accommodate this "underclocking"?
