Unique problem: memory timing resetting to slow value

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have overclocked my cpu and NB successfully; however my CAS# latency is "reset" to a certain value every time I boot.

Hardware information:

MB: ECS A960M M2 (micro-atx)
CPU: Athlon II X2 260 (16X250)=4000MHZ (+30mV)
HT link: 8X250=2000MHZ
NB: 10X250=2500MHZ (+30 mV) (uncertain about NB stability but lack a way to decrease multiplier)
RAM: 3:8 (1333MHZ) (4X1GB)

Running Windows 8 64bit Professional

temperatures for all my hardware is nominal

I am having a timing problem with the RAM.

At 1333MHZ, the RAM is rated for: 9-9-9-25-34
However, whenever I set the rated timing in the BIOS
and boot into windows, the timing is set for 11-9-9-25-34

Currently, I am lost as for what to do to change the timings. I suspect this may be a fail safe of some kind but I don't know.
Is this a known problem?

RAM model: G.Skill DDR3-1333 F3-10666CL9s-4GBNT

Could just be a mis-read.
What happens if you set CAS to values other than 9 in the BIOS?

I've been busy, so I apologize for the late reply. Whenever I set the CAS to a value less than 11, it simply resets to 11 in CPU-Z. When I reboot, it also shows as 11 in the BIOS. I will try to set the CAS to 12 and determine if it only resets when I set values less than 11.
