Thread Starter 
In my bios for my ram timing there is and option to set my timings to either, default, auto, manual, or optimized. What should I use?

Set to manual then set them to the default from the manufacturer. Then try to tighten them down one at a time, after each attempt run memtest test 5 and 6, if you get one pass of each tighten further till it fails. Then move on to the nerxt timing. After youve figured out the tightest for each run memtest for a 4-8 hours. If no errors then your good. But if your overclocking your cpu further, set them to like 3-3-3-8 till you achieve your oc, then try to tighten them down.

You can use these timings on your RAM, but you will need to raise the voltage to ~2.7v

2.5-3-3-6 CR1

Your RAM will not do CAS 2 ..so those will probably be as tight as you can set. If you start OC'ing, you will need to loosen them up by a number er' so, to accomodate the higher speed.

what kinda memory test can i run?
post #7 of 20
http://www.memtest86.com/memtest86-3.3.iso.zip download that, then use nero or another compatible iso burner to burn that to cd. Then select cdrom as your first boot device, then put in cd and boot computer. Memtest will start automatically.
