- Memory Timings Explained

If you're looking to tweak the maximum performance out of your machine, playing with your memory timings at different voltages is always a good place to start, providing of course your memory is capable of tightened timings period. CoolTechZone cover more about what each of the memory timings mean (CAS, TRAS, etc.) and how they impact your system's performance.


Nowadays it seems like everybody is tweaking their system. Something that is of importance in your system's performance is memory bandwidth, which is directly related to the bus speed. This is a rather confusing thing, sometimes a lower bus speed with faster memory timings is considerably better than just increasing your bus speed. When you are buying memory you want to get the highest bandwidth required by your system with the lowest CAS/tRCD/tRPD/tRAS.
