Ram settings

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
What should the timings of corsair twinx be set at for OCing ( when setting divider)? I learned my board has problems auto setting the ram. I had to buy cheap ram to get back into the bios after an bad OC and the corsair works now. Also will it hurt to run the cheap 512x2 pny with the corsair?

Please tell me that before you went out to buy more RAM because your system didn't boot, that you tried resetting the CMOS/BIOS to default first...
a lot of newer overclockers make this mistake - think there is a serious problem and that they won't boot for good - so you may have just bought new RAM without even needing to.

Sorry if I misjudge you, but I'm just wondering if you're new to overclocking or not. One can not simply tell by number of posts or join date

Anyway, I'd go with something loose liiiiiike.... oooh, umm... 3 - 4 - 4 - 8 should do the trick? I'd wait til someone else comes in and gives you an opinion though, because I'm not the most experienced of overclockers. It's worked for me doing that though.

Yes I did, tried everything. Battery , ect. Then read up on the web and asked here. seems the corsair I have will do that, act dead if it dosn't like the settings with the a8n sli. I'm just wondering if running the corsair and pny together is a problem.

I can't really answer that, so I'll take my newbie butt on out of here. Good luck with that though

I do have to wonder why the RAM would still act dead even after the CMOS is returned to default though....

Running 4 sticks will require you to run a 2T command rate, which, in benchmarks, will give you a huge hit on performance. Unless you are planning on doing 'extreme' multitasking, you'd be better off with 1 gig of the better ram. Also, since you are running a 3700+ you probably plan on getting a high overclock, and the 1 gig of ram will overclock much better and at a 1T command rate.
