Timings for 1066MHz G.SKILL

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813186141
RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231226

Ever since I've had this setup, my RAM (4 X 2GB G.SKILL) will only run at 800MHz while ganged instead of the stated 1066MHz. I emailed G.SKILL about this issue and they said to use the stated timings and voltage on the box (I have set the voltage to 2.0v, as recommended). They recommend a CL6-6-6-18 setup for 1066MHz, the same that shows in CPU-Z. G.SKILL support also recommended tweaking the NB and HT speeds. My NB has a sub-option for automatic NB voltage for GPU, and is set to AUTO by default. Will the NB auto-voltage on, the system will hangs as soon as W7 begins to load. When the auto-voltage is off, it freezes on the W7 loading screen before the login prompt. I'm assuming I need this setting turned off because I notice its more "stable" before it hangs.

I would like to know if anyone has any info on this setup, I just got started in RAM tuning.

You run an original Phenom.... until Phenom II, running 4 DIMMs of memory, especially at higher speed, was fairly finicky

In fact, I am fairly certain that AM2+ setups cannot run 4 dimms at a higher speed than 800mhz. Maybe you can by overclocking, but not as a default speed.

The memory standard for the mobo is 1066MHz, but only for AM2+. And my CPU is AM2+. But I have heard that I can get 1066 if I put one stick in each DIMM channel (2 x 2GB).

With 2x2GB the likelihood is you can. Your choice.
Running at 800Mhz 5-5-5, it'd be around equal to 1066 @ 6-6-6 anyway. Very poor latencies for high speed.
