question, do i have to mess with the timings, since I'm setting the speed to stated speed, the timings in the bios are 11-11-11-28-1T, where the gskill website says it should be 10-11-10-30-2N
Theoretically, you should just load the XMP profile in BIOS and the timings should be set according to what Gskill says without any further effort on your part. If the XMP profile fails to set the timings that your sticks should have, you could then attempt manual setting. You can check the timings with CPU-Z from inside Windows. Also, when they sell 1.5v RAM, they mean 1.5v-1.575v. Kingston is very open about it in spec sheets. I myself have a Corsair kit 1.5v that isn't stable at 1.5 and i run at 1.6v just to be safe.
If you still have trouble, i advice you to ask for tips in the Vishera Onwers club in the AMD CPU section of the forum. They know more than me.
