Exact Factory Timings for Ballistix

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've got Ballistix DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) RAM.. two sticks 1 gig each..
My new computer isn't picking them up at full capacity. I'd imagine it's because the timings and voltage aren't set properly.

What I'm trying to figure out is all of the factory settings that I should set this RAM at so I get the specified readings from these things. I want factory settings for now, I'll try to OC later.

These are the things my mobo gives me (they're all set to AUTO at the moment):
CAS Latency Time (tCL)
RAS# to CAS# Delay (tRCP)
RAS# Precharge (tRP)
Precharge Delay (tRAS)
All Precharge to ACT
REF to ACT Delay (tRFC)
Performance LVL (Read Delay)
Read Delay Phase Adjust
MCH ODT Latency
Read to Pre Delay (tWR)
Rank Write to Read (tWTR)
ACT to ACT Delay (tRRD)
Read to Write Delay (tRDWR)
Ranks Write to Write (tWRWR)
Ranks Read to Read (tRDRD)
Read CAS# Precharge (tRTP)
All PRE to Refresh


I've already change the voltage to 2.2V like the specified settings list.. I have no idea what these other numbers should be or what they mean.. thanks for any help and guidance =)

Just leave it on auto for all those timings and lower the voltage to 2.0 for now (should get you pretty high) maybe 2.1v max as I am sure youhavnt tested your mobo with a multi meter to find out what exact voltage your running.

Go pickup memset and that should tell you all your subtimings. Your mobo will read the spd which is the factory set timings and use those when you boot up.

Yeah.. the problem with auto is that it doesn't detect the RAM at it's specified timings or specified voltage. Specified by Crucial, that is. Crucial says the RAM should run at 2.2V and 4-4-4-12. My RAM does not while the mobo has it set to auto. Therefore, I need to go in and set it properly. If it does break at 2.2V I'll send it back, no big deal.. it's not overclocking if I'm running it at exactly what Crucial tells me to =)
