does anybody no how to play around with Latency times?

ive been reading a little about it and currently my memory is set at 3 but i was wondering is it worth going or trying to get it to 2.

does anybody no how to do this a step by step guide would be great :whistling:
now what happens if i do change the latency times and the pc wont boot how can i revert back to 3 will the bios still boot if the pc wont boot ( as in booting to windows )

and if i do change the timings will the voltage have to be raised to make it more stable?

i have 1 gig of pc3200 400mhz RAM (2x512) running in dual channel

any help or guidence would be greatly appreciated
thanks in advance,

I tried reducing the timing on my OCZ 667 gold memory from 4 to 3 but XP would'nt even boot at that setting. I didnt try raising the voltage.

well according to that guide reducing the Latency doesnt really improve performance so i guess theres no bother in doing it might just overclock the ram slighty and bump up the fsb speed
thanks for the guides

if i did play around and the pc didnt want to boot what would i do would i just reset the cmos?

thanks again,

I could still get to the bios where i changed the memory back to where it was. On another computer i did have to pull the cmos battery to get it to boot at all.
