When i look in my bios, my timings are 5-5-5-16. How do i get the ram to run at 4-4-4-12 like they are advertised to run?
I already tried yesterday and my pc would not start, i had to reset cmos.
Any suggestions?

Everything currently is at stock. I have not overclocked anything yet in this rig because of hard drive problems before

Weird, if they are running stock they should be capable of running them timings.

Post a CPU-Z screeny of your memory please

Have you tried manually set the timings? Some motherboards force RAMs to run at the motherboard's stock timings than the RAMs'.

I don't know if your feature is hidden, but it is on my motherboard. I have to press CTRL + F1 to see the options.

yes, i manually set them and my computer did not restart. I restarted cmos and set the timings back to stock and everything was fine

Now that the cpu will run those timings, they will not run the timings with fsb at 1336. Should i lower the timings or raise the voltage or what?

Highest voltage I'd go with HZ's is 2.30, but try to keep it at 2.2-2.25 if you can.

Also, lower timings = tighter, and harder to OC. Currently I'm at 3-3-3-5 with my HZ's. I have the same MB as you, so you shouldn't have a problem.
