Ram Timings... Is there an "easy" way?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok so I have never been one to mess with my Ram timings much... mainly because I have little to no clue what I'm doing whe nit comes to timings... I understand how it works and all but I don't have the patience to sit down and fiddle with the timings mainly because I usually get frustrated with having to reset the cmos so much... am I missing something? Is there a way to tighten the timings without going through one by one and slowly lowering them until you reach the limit? Maybe I've been going about this the wrong way?

The 'easy' way to set RAM timings is to set them all to auto.

To make them as tight as possible, you have to go through each one, lower it until Windows doesnt boot, raise it by 1, then use Memtest86 (the one that boots off a floppy disk) to check for stability (and maybe raise i by one again).

I thought as much... wish it wasn't such a tedious task...

It may be tedious but you can get tremendous results from this. You can unlock the true potential of your ram this way. I have so far logged about 3 hours straight of tedious work with my ram, it was long and a lot of errors and memtest but I think its been worth it so far.I have the most fun with the GEIL ONE ram before as it had some of the tightest timings I have ever seen.

There is a tut on DFI forums that explains each timing and what it benefits however there may be different names for your settings vs my DFI.
