I might not of helped with the settings but in all honesty the best settings that you can get depend upon what type of ram you have. that is why I brought this up to begin with. if you have the older micron based ram you might get 3-3-3-7 at 800mhz or even 5-5-5-15 at 1200mhz. if you have the elpida chips you might only get 4-4-4-12 at 840 at the best and not any tighter or any more mhz.
to help with the info given would be like saying I have an intel cpu of unknown make. whats the fastest I can get it to run and what are the best settings for it. first question asked would be what type of intel cpu correct? and the next one chances are would be what stepping of intel cpu to help narrow it down a bit so we can give the best advice correct?
if all you want is just settings to run then here is your answer run the ram at 1100-1150mhz with the timings set to 5-5-5-11. use the voltage at 2.25v. those are teh same settings I used with my corsair ram. now will that work with yours even though yours? I doubt it. though you can try and if you do I'm curious to see what the results are. if that doesnt' work then you can try this as I also used these settings with a few sticks of corsair ram. 1000mhz at 4-4-4-9 at the same 2.25v. you are more then welcome to try those also or even as a last result you can try 800mhz at 3-3-3-7 at 2.25-2.3v. I honestly doubt any of those will work though as I had the older micron based ram. but as I said you can try and I would be curious to see the results.
but this leads me to the next part and as to why I doubt those settings would work. first thing if you want to find out what type of chips you have on the memory you have to look at the stick itself. see the picture below for reference
see the top stick of ram with all the black print. in the upper right you will see where it says xms5402v1.1 or something like that. what is the number after the v? this will give a beter hint as to what type of chip is on the ram itself. these chips make a HUGE
difference in what type of settings you can get away with. the example above kind of shows this as this is common for micron based ram, but most other types of chips that get put on the stick of ram will not do those same settings.
and yes I know I'm long winded and difficult
it's who I am but I am trying to help it's just what your asking really can't just be given a simple do this and it will work style answer with how much info you have given. plus I believe that more info is always better then just a simple yes or no answer. this way maybe in the future fi something comes up you can take something that you learned and maybe use it rather then depend upon everyone else.Edited by rx7speed - 9/11/08 at 1:44pm
