Default is there a difference?

im windering if theres a big difference for 1t and 2t command rate settings because i got some new ram today (the ram in my sig) and it wont stay stable at all unless i put it to 2t, i read a little bit about it and some people say it makes a difference and some people say it doesnt, so does it or doesnt it? and what exactly does it do?

Just making sure but 1t=dual channel, 2t=single channel right? If im right then here:

EDIT: BTW what did you do with your old memory?

Nope, that's not. 1T is better. Right now I just changed mine from 2T to 1T. I don't know exactly what it is, but I'm pretty sure it makes a pretty big difference! Try boosting up the voltage a bit; we have almost the same RAM, my OCZ covers voltages up to 2.8, so what do you have it at now? Mine's at 2.75, and it seems to be doing fine.

i have it at 2.9v at 536mhz, big difference bewtween our ram is that yours is ddr400 and mine is ddr500 so i need looser timings, ive read about the "command rate" (i think its called that) and some people say it makes barely if any difference to put it at 2t but im curious as to what it is and what it does
