What to edit in bios?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
What do I need to change in my BIOS so that my RAM (6GB DDR3-1600 CL9 9-9-27) optimally works with my i7-950 at stock speed.

Because I'm kinda troubled with this :/

What would you consider optimal?

Are you trying to just run the RAM at stock speeds too? Or are you wanting to try to overclock or lower the timings on the RAM?

If you're planning on OC'ing it later it'd be better to just leave the RAM at stock for now.

You won't see much of a noticeable difference by playing with the RAM settings and you'd have to mess around with them again later (ie. you have to mess around and get a stable CPU overclock, then mess around with the RAM settings to find one that won't destabilize the computer).

There will be an option for a memory divider in the bios, instead of auto you will want to set it to 2:8 or 2:10 (whichever lands on 1600Mhz), in the memory options you can set the CL, tRCD, & tRP to 9, the tRC to 27, & the command rate (CR) to 1 (or 2 if it won't work at 1, it should).
Also set the dram voltage to 1.65 (or 1.66 if the bios won't allow 1.65), & the QPI/VTT voltage to 1.25 or so (may need more, all IMCs are a bit different on the cpu) you can try to lower/raise them a bit as you test stability if all goes well.
