    Give me some time, I've only had about three hours to bond with the chip so far.

    Well.. I'm just starting off here and I'm starting with my RAM. I'm able to set the RAM to 1066 in the bios, set the voltage and timings however upon restart my RAM timings change to 5 7-7-24 and it seems to give me different options of timings depending on the speed of the RAM. Very confusing. My question is, how can I set the RAM to 1066 and have my 5 5-5-15 timings with this board?

    Is there some sort of option where you have to enable manual timing control? My NF4 DFI board is like that.

    Well after reading up on it my only option is to run 5 5-5-16 because unfortunately with this current bios the higher the RAM speed the more lower timing options you have. Strange but true. I'm going to work on something in the mid 900's at CAS 4, that should be the ticket for now. :)

    Thanks! Will do. :) I have the Crosshair original so I'm pretty used to Asus' layout since they are the only boards I own, but I hear the Crosshair II Formula is different.

    So.. does anyone know where I could find some good OC'd bios settings for my 790GX? I pretty much have my RAM figured out so It's time to move to step 2. :)
