Shouldn't be anything to turn off that is related to RAM settings, just make sure that you have the speed set to the proper rated speed for your DIMM(s), which should be 1600 according to the SPD sheet. Set timings as per "SPD" list in the BIOS, and make sure that your RAM voltage is set right in the overclocking tab. Then give it a quick stability test afterward, but that should be it biggrin.gif

Thanks, Also should i change the TwTr Command Rate Delay my default is 6T...

After following the above instruction i think my timings is now correct. Did i get it correct? i cant get the trc to match the timings.

For initial testing and settings, I would set them to exactly what it listed in the SPD column, anything else would be (under)overclocking the DIMMs and may present you with a few issues on the stability side. CPU-Z doesn't read AMD tRFC right, in your BIOS- check the SPD setting, it should be something like 110 or 160ns for tRFC, set it to that, otherwise you're golden.

EDIT: It -may- read them right, but it's semantics, it uses the Intel method of tRFC which is shown in clock cycles. On AMD platforms, our tRFC is measured in real time, not per-clock.

Hi so what you mean should i follow that settings SPD on where on my default bios settings? as per below image of my bios, thank for the response i really appreciate it helping noobs like me

Also will i consider to update my bios the bos version installed in my mobo is F2 ( gigabyte 970a ds3.)

Also, try changing Command Rate to 1T. It's out of spec for your sticks (same goes for my sticks) but makes a lot of difference, especially in gaming. Mine is set @ 1T and they're fine at 1.5v

Command Rate makes almost no noticible difference at all in real life with DDR3. T1 is cool, but if they clock better or have better timings in CR2, then stick to CR2.

Side note: Set -BOTH- tRFC to 160.

Which DIMMs are you using exactly, and how many of them? Your DCT fine timings look sort of odd, but that may be more motherboard/DIMM combination specific.
^ Nevermind, forgot you posted CPU-Z, lack of sleep lol

Generally, the rule of thumb shows that with DDR3-1600 that is RATED at 1600 with a CL of 9, the timings should be something like this: 9, 9, 9, 24, 5, 160, 160, 10, 5, 33, 4. (Of course, make that 24 into 25 and 33 into 34 for your specific sticks). And stability test. Testing command rate one may also prove beneficial, just a little bit (3%).

Yeah by saying that 1T makes a lot of difference, i meant something like 3-4 fps. That's generally not a lot (you'll get way more from overclocking the GPU), but for RAM to be causing this, it's quite an improvement.
