MemSet is a simple Windows freeware application that allows you to tweak memory timings and thus boost system performance.
Although it's pretty easy to use, it doesn't necessarily mean that it can be used by beginners, because those with less experience may have a pretty hard time trying to find out the meaning of the options placed in the main window.
The interface is, as we said, very basic, which means all options are placed directly in the main window with a simple method provided to users who wish to change these timings.
Besides the fact that it shows the used chipset, memory and size, MemSet allows you to change Precharge Delay, Command per Clock, Row Cycle Time, Write Recovery Time, Refresh Mode Select, Write to Write Delay and many other timings.
Unfortunately, there's no help file included in the package, which means those who need assistance while using the application have no other option than to search the Internet.
Another thing that's worth mentioning is that MemSet doesn't feature a “Restore to Defaults” tool, which means that you can't get back to the original settings in case something goes wrong.
On the other hand, the application works flawlessly on all Windows versions, without even asking for administrator privileges when loaded on Windows 7.
All in all, MemSet is a very simple way to adjust memory timings and although this isn't the kind of tool addressed to beginners, a help file is a must have, just to make sure users are on the safe side all the time.
