Hey Folks,
I just had a quick question about RAM timings. I originally had 2GB (2x1024MB) of OCZ PC2-6400 800Mhz Platinum RAM, with 4-5-4 timings. I later added in 2GB of the same RAM, except it was a Rev. 2. This new RAM instead had 4-4-4 timings. I am just wondering if this will cause any problems with my computer, or if the Rev. 2 is automatically forced to operate with the slower 4-5-4 timings. Thanks so much for any help.

Eli

If the BIOS is set to Auto in RAM settings then it will most probably slow down the faster RAM and you will have no problem. The difference between the two is very small.
