Just loosen the timings on your ram as high as your BIOS will allow and set Memclock Index back to 400 and rerun. If it's still stable, then work on tightening the timings back down.

Here are the settings

I dont really understand tightening timings and stuff - so would really apopreciate your help

Min RAS# active time (Tras) 5T
Ras# to Cas# delay (Trcd) 3T
Row Preelayer? time (Trp) 3T
Row Cycle Time (Trc) 16T
Row Refresh Cyc Time (Trfc) H/2T Memory Timing 2T


Which ones wshould i alter.

Thank You very much, I really appreciate your help..Couldn't OC wothout you!!!

Those are "delays". "T" means 1 clock cycle, so increasing those settings will slow your ram down. Increase all of them as high as your motherboard will allow. Once you've done this, you can see what your ram max is and can also start looking at Vdimm if you want to try even higher. Once you're happy with the speed of the ram, then we'll help you tighten the settings back down to increase performance even more.

so should i push up all the settings as high as the mobo lets me

there was also a write recovery time setting - should i do the same there and also with SW/HW Dram Over 4G - should i enable them?

Will this damage the mem.

Thanks

Yes, increasing them as high as your motherboard board will allow is fine. This is also known as "loosening" them and will not harm them at all. You're actually allowing them to perform slower. As far as the software/hardware Dram over 4 gigs, that's irrelevant for 32 bit operating systems. 32 bit systems can't address ram over 4 gigabytes,so leave it disabled.

Okay, set Cas=3, Tras to 10, TRCD=4 and Trp=4. Set command rate to 1T and memclock to 200. Continue raising the HTT until your CPU is unstable (add more vcore if you want). Then set memclock to 400 and see if stable, if not put on the next divider down from 400 and retest until stable. Then try and tighten (lower) those memory timings as much as possible. Remember to add VDimm as necessary to try and stabilise the Ram but don't go over manufacturer's limit.

I have done following

Cas=3
Trcd=3
Trp=3
Tras=8

I have just tested the memclock at 400Mhz.

It is at 2.7Ghz, and the Ddr voltage is at 1.85V

It i stable with memtest and OCCT

Do you think it is possible for me to lower the Ddr voltage any more, or tighten any of the timings.

If I were to go about overclocing more....what would I just in terms of memory.

Thanks

Look forward to your response

You can try increasing the HTT and see if it can go any higher. If it won't then try tightning up your timings.
