I puchased new PC parts from newegg a few months ago and I have been having some serious problems setting my BIOS settings for my memory and proc. MoBo is ASUS - P5N-E SLI 650 SLI Nvidia Nforce - FSB: 1333/1066 MHz - Memory: Slots: 4 x 240 pin, DDR2 800 RAM is G.Skill F2-6400CL5D-2GBNQ - Cas Latency 5 - Timings: 5-5-5-15 - Voltage: 1.8-2.0v Processor is Conroe Core 2 Duo - BX80557E6750 - 2.66GHz - FSB: 1333MHz - L2 Cache: 4M Shared - Voltage: .85V - 1.5V I've read that many people with my mobo have to set the memory timings manually for this particular ram/mobo combo but I am not familiar with FSB, timings, etc. to do it all myself. I've searched forums and such but I can't seem to find the right settings. Below is a list of the settings in my BIOS at their current state but I am not sure which ones are right and which ones aren't. I've searched forums and such to get most of them. I am especially unsure of what to set the FSB, Frequencies, Voltages, and mem timings to but I was hoping that someone with more knowledge of this sort of thing can assist me. Jumper Free Configuration AI Tuning: Manual NB PCI Freq: 100 VControl: VCore Volt: Auto Mem Volt: 1.920v (I raised this slightly) NB Core Volt: 1.393v (I raised this as well) Vcore Offset Volt: AutoFSB & Memory Config: FSB - Memory Clock Mode: Linked FSB - Memroy Ratio: Auto FSB (QDR) MHz: 1333 (I didn't change this) -Actual FSB (QDR) MHz: 1333.3 Mem (DDR) MHz: Linked -Actual Mem (DDR) MHz: 800.0 CPU Configuration CPU Type: Intel Core 2 Duo CPU CPU Speed: 2.66 GHz Cache RAM: 4096k CPU Multiplier: 8 (I think this is safe where it is) Chipset Memory Timing Setting tCL (Cas Latency): 4 tRCD: 4 tRP: 4 tRAS: 12 Command Per Clock (CMD): 2T (Advanced Memory Settings) tRRD: 2 tRC: 3 tWR: 5 tWTR: 7 tREF: 1 tRD: 5 tRFC: 42 ASync Latency: 2 I know that's a lot of information but I'm not sure what to change and what to leave alone. As far as FSB goes I'm not sure how any of that works but I hate the idea i'm bottlenecking my processor. The timings for my memory usually say 5-5-5-15 but there are the advanced settings which I rarely see mentioned. Also, I currently have the timings set to 4-4-4-12 as I've noticed many people have done but have no idea if I need to raise a FSB setting or a voltage setting somewhere with it (and how safe it even is). Thanks for any help. Also, I have Vista Ultimate 64 bit, a geforce 7950gt 512mb, audigy sb soundcard, and a 750watt thermaltake power supply.
