OCZ pc5400 memory timing not right

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
In my bios defaults my OCZ Gold 667MHz dual channel 5400 memory are set to to 4-4-4-12 timings they are supposed to be 4-4-4-8. Do I just simply change that in the bios and it's fixed? There is a 5th timing too, but I'm not sure what it's for. It's set at 19. Am I supposed to change that? Also as far as the clock speed goes on memory, is it linked to something (ie. timings or voltage) or should there be a setting in bios that will directly change it?

Yes, you have to set them manually and sometimes if the RAM can handle it, they can be even lowered to 4-3-3-8 and as far as that 5th configuration, I have no idea what it does but in my P5WD2-P it goes from 2-8 but I always keep it at 4.

And yes, you have to set everything manually, don't let AIBooster OC your system, it's not a 100% guranteed thing and most of the times it's not as good as if you were to set the OC manually.

Try several configurations till you get to the one that will suit the system (at being stable that is) and keep it that way. Keep track of your records, write everything down, at least that's what I do when I try to OC a system for the first time, because we all know that not everything will be the same. Now get the notepad and pen ready. And good luck.
