post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
i have no idea what im doing right now with my new ram.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...tent-_-text-_-

there is the link

now i have tried setting the manual timing. and cant get anywhere. i set the voltage to 1.65. i set cas latency to 6. i dont understand what anything means in my motherboard ram settings. does anyone here have this motherboard? i am still getting a 2t score and everyone says i need 1t.

windows index score is staying at 5.9...

Please post which specific motherboard you have so people can help you.

your ram settings should be 7-8-7-20

This is a direct quote from Hardware Secrets:

The operations that these numbers indicate are the following: CL-tRCD-tRP-tRAS-CMD. To understand them, bear in mind that the memory is internally organized as a matrix, where the data are stored at the intersection of the lines and columns.

CL: CAS Latency. The time it takes between a command having been sent to the memory and when it begins to reply to it. It is the time it takes between the processor asking for some data from the memory and then returning it.

tRCD: RAS to CAS Delay. The time it takes between the activation of the line (RAS) and the column (CAS) where the data are stored in the matrix.

tRP: RAS Precharge. The time it takes between disabling the access to a line of data and the beginning of the access to another line of data.

tRAS: Active to Precharge Delay. How long the memory has to wait until the next access to the memory can be initiated.

CMD: Command Rate. The time it takes between the memory chip having been activated and when the first command may be sent to the memory. Sometimes this value is not announced. It usually is T1 (1 clock cycle) or T2 (2 clock cycles).
Usually, you have two options: to configure your PC to use the memory standard timings, usually by setting memory configuration to “Auto” on the motherboard setup; or to manually configure your PC to use lower memory timings, which may increase the performance of your system. Notice that not all motherboards allow you to change the memory timings. Also, some motherboards may not be able to run at very low timings, and they may configure your memory module to run at a higher timing setting because of this.

If you can find the setting in your motherboard and see any of the acronyms up there, change it to correspond to the following:

CL-tRCD-tRP-tRAS (7-8-7-20) then lastly leave the CMD or command rate to T2 (start with this first before changing it)

Here's the complete article to help you understand how memory timings work:

Hope this helps!
