With our testing we wanted to make sure the CPU stayed at its rated speed while we kicked up the speed on the RAM. We did this using the easy settings found on the ASRock P55. However, as with any testing that changes the internal core clock of the CPU you will see a performance increase over stock speeds. For our timings testing we predominantly played with the Latency and Command rate as they have the most direct effect on performance and stability.
