    Ok, so I bought this ram, and not sure what do make of the timings

    PC2-6400
    2GB Dual CH
    Platinum Edition
    5-4-4

    I take it the '5-4-4' is the timings..........I am just asking for an opinion of whether this is "exceptional/good/average/crap/OMFG sad"

    thanks..

    That isn't the complete timing for RAM. You need something like: 4-4-4-15 (1T).

    It doesn't sound too bad right now but it's hard to say without the full thing.

    ok, I read off of the manufactuers website, and this RAM is supposed to run at 5-4-4-15.

    What exactly does this mean, and how do I know what the system is using this timing (BIOS doesn't help, says the setting is 'AUTO'). Here is a screenshot from CPU-Z. Is this a correct readout for this ram, or is something not right here?

    hmm.....I also noticed that the part number isnt corrent. It reads OCZ2P80042G when it should read OCZ2P8004GK. Is this also something to be concerned about?
