If it doesnt run at stock setting set it to 1600 and you'll be able to run really low timings thumb.gif

Low timing means, low speed?
post #14 of 25
Low timing=less latency in between computations=higher speed sonic.gif

how to lower ram timings: lower the 4 settings cL,trcd,trp,tras) 1 setting at a time.one notch at a time .lower it..reboot..see if post..lower 1 more..reboot..etc..until you don't POST..then go back to the last one that worked..this will put you in the ballpark

Look up threads on latency (timing) vs frequency (speed in mhz).

AMD likes lower timing vs higher frequency. Intel likes higher freq over timing.

Think of timing as how long before new information is read from RAM. Frequency is basically how much info can be sent (somebody correct me if I'm wrong).

With my backup rig (x4 955BE) I can't get past 1600 mhz without having to drop my CPU overclock. Higher freq's on RAM stress out the IMC which may limit your max CPU overclock.

The 960T should be a Thuban. Thubans should be able to do at least 1866 but than its a gamble with the chips.

I would just get the tightest CL6/7 ram at 1333 or 1600 (if you're feeling a bit adventurous).

I think they meant, test out your parts. You might get lucky and get a great overclocker. I haven't been so lucky the last few purchases.

If you are going to be tuning your RAM, be sure you know how to clear your CMOS biggrin.gif

Update..
Did halfday of work and build my first Basic gaming PC.
Took about 4 hours
Hardest part was cooler master 212 CPU fan..
Bracket bolt was not fitting each hole !!!!
Was able to force each side.. Maybe I was too careful on
Pressing the CPU..

Well.. I only got 1600.. And I satisfied, least I don't have to return it.
Also run into "not bootable drive detected" issue.
My SSD not detecting.. Maybe I need to connect to SATA III
My Mobo does not have SATA III..
Or defective !!!

Well I need to go oversea for business trip and coming back three weeks later
Hope I can figure it out till than..

To Play Diablo 3

Thank you all and God bless

got back from the bussiness trip and played D3 about 3 hours last night...even I had a terrible jet lag..Snorkle.gif
graphic was stunning with GTX 550Ti, SSD card working properly(booting time is improved, but not fast as I thgought)
I tried to use IDE DVD burner from my old PC, but my Mobo does not have IDE socket..and google about connecting IDE to SATA...
I figure, just buy the new SATA DVD burner..since it's very cheap and got it from Microcenter in paterson for $17.00:thumb:
other than that...everything went smoothly
Dont see any problem at all.

Thank you rdr 09 and other people help me drunken.gifcheers.gif
