Overclocking FX-6300 and other components - Page 3

I also don't see a way to set the timing of the RAM. Factory timing is 9-9-9-24 but it appears the BIOS defaulted to 11-11-11-28. There's an intel extreme memory profile that sets the timings down a but, but it isn't the factory settings.

There is a setting for DRAM timing mode that can be auto, link, or unlink. There's also settings for command rate, tCL, tRCD, tRP, tRAS, tRC, tWR, tRRD, tWTR, tCWL, tFAW, tREF, tRFC0 and tRFC1, but I have no idea which of those should be set to 9, 9, 9, and 24. Maybe the first 4? tCL, tRCD, tRP and tRAS?

Auto, link, or unlink refer to the ability to change memory speed independent of CPU speed.

9, 9, 9, and 24 refer to the first 4 memory timings listed in the bios.

I'm not sure why though in the BIOS under DIMM 1 memory speed it lists tCL, tRCD, tRP and tRAS as 13.125ns(11CLK) for the first 3 and 35ns(28CLK) for tRAS. There's then a second page under XMP support information that lists it correctly at 9-10-9-28.

I'm going to try 9-8-8-25 at 1.601V from what a reviewer of this particular RAM tested it at.

Well crap, it's not even loading anything now, can't even get into the BIOS. The PC is running, but I'm getting no video. Hope I didn't fry the mobo.

No, you didnt fry the mobo. Just clear the cmos with the jumper. Instructions are in your manual.

tCL, tRCD, tRP, tRAS,

The specs are listed in that order, so your tCL is 9, tRCD is 9, tRP is 9 and tRAS is 24.
Leave the rest of your ram settings on auto, except your vdimm voltage, which you should set to spec. Pay no attention what other reviewers got, they usually try to show the tightest timings they can get and that will vary with cpu and mobo. Set to specs before playing around. smile.gif

Ah, good to know. What do you think it was that caused it? Maybe I should just keep the DRAM voltage on auto?

You tried to use the reviewers tight specs and it didnt work, heh. Be prepared to clear the cmos alot when overclocking.

When anything is on auto, you never know what it is. Set the Dram Voltage to what the manufacturer says it is.

Unfortunately I don't have any jumpers to reset the cmos with and there don't appear to be any on the mobo I can borrow. I don't think the mobo came with any, but there might be a package of screws I missed that has one in it. Could I just use a screw or something to cross the pins?
