This means that by Lowering the Trc value from 35 (55ns) to 15 (24ns) on Your HIGH SPEED DDR2 RAM, you will be able to yield a ~1-4% performance improvement across the board with no decrease in any application, as tested by LegitReviews.com. Here is the link: http://www.legitreviews.com/article/458/1/
According to their conclusions:
Since this setting can be changed on any brand module, if the BIOS allows it, this is something that everyone should look into and see if it works for them. Take an hour out of your day and run some tests with the Trc set like it is now in your BIOS and then lower it to 13-17 and see if you notice a performance increase! :captnkill:


I have not tried this as of yet, as my board went DEAD, and I am await the RMA.:rolleyes:

With PC-9136 I can I was able to set the Trc value to 5. Now that was fast!:D

From what I have seen the faster the frequency the more important lowering the Row Cycle Time (Trc) becomes. All the testing for this article was down at 1244MHz, so our results might be more dramatic than what one would see at say 800MHz.

:D
