good ram timings?
patriot viper series 2x2gb 5 5 5 15 stock, what would be a better ram time. Also what ratio would be the best? 440 cpu fsb currently

From what I've read, if you got any performance increase, it would be from lowering the middle two timings (tRCD and tRP) but given that you have a sufficient amount of memory you probably won't notice any difference.

DDR2 Frequency > Timings

Just set the ram divider and let SPD handling the timings.

lower timings are better, but less stable.
as mentioned, obtaining a higher clock is better then adjusting the timings.
though if I'm not mistaken, adjusting the first timing (tCL or CAS latency) has the most effect (I could be wrong)

the best ratio is the one that makes your ram go the fastest without crashing :P

what speed is your ram stock?

yeah i would have to agree...overclocking the RAM will give you the most benefit performance wise, otherwise when you reach the frequency wall for your RAM at their max rated voltage, you can either overvolt them or you can loosen the timings, otherwise don't bother with the timings...i wouldn't recommend lowering the timing on overclocked RAM...
