RAM Timings Keep Changing.

I built a PC for mid to high end gaming and here is what is consists of.

Motherboard- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

APU- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

GPU- AMD Radeon HD 7750 Gigabyte.

RAM- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It has a one click bios and for the most part I usually know what I am doing. I'm having this one particular issue though that is really bothering me. If need be I can post screen caps of CPU-Z. But I go into my bios and Select the Intel Extreme Memory profile 1, because it's the right settings I want for my RAM. My rams timings are supposed to be 9-10-9-28. So when I use that profile it sets it to that. Then after everything this is good I go into my CPU-Z to check my timings and boom, changes to 5-5-5-15. I really don't understand why. I know that i don't have an intel system but even when I set my ram timings manually it still always goes back to 5-5-5-15 and I really want to fix that. Screenshots of everything will be posted below. My ram is Single channeled btw for some reason Dual Channeling it makes everything whacky idk. But thanks in advanced.

Screencaps of BIOS and CPU-Z-

No idea why showing incorrectly, but at times it will, may be a bug in the MSI BIOS

what is showing inncorrectly? The figures in CPU-Z or BIOS? Also my RAM isn't dual channeled. When I tried it slowed my pc Uber down and idk why. IT was before I used The XMP extreme profile setting. Profile 1. Btw I was reading your posts helping someone else with timing so im glad you answered me.

Are the sticks in the correct slots - for all we know it may be in dual channel and CPU-Z isn't reading it right or the BIOS is passing bad info

My ram is right next to eachother so its not dual channeled. Its single. When I tried to dual channel it would make my pc slow. CPU-Z was saying the correct timings before then today i turned on my pc and it changed idk why.

I cleared my CMOS just incase I messed with any settings and now my RAM is running at 1600mhz and the clock times are 11-11-11-28 which is a whole lot better than 5-5-5-15 imo. More stable. I think ima just not worry about bringing it to 1866mhz unless It can hurt it idk. If you think of anything lemme know. Btw just a quick question since I have an AMD apu does the intel extreme memory profile not work right or something? Just curious.

Look in the advanced section of the BIOS and see if there an option for DOCP or EOCP or XMP and if so enable it and select 1866, if the mobo supports one of these DRAM clocking options it should set the DRAM to the correct timings and freq

Right I did that and when I restart my computer boom sets back to normal in CPU-z...

Sounds like a screwed up BIOS, may want to flash the latest or if on the latest, re-flash

That is exactly what i was thinking, because I restarted went into my bios messed with the settings and everything was good again, it seems like my BIOS isn't saving. I'm just not sure exactly how to reflash correctly.

Go to the mobo website and download the latest version of the BIOS, they will have directions there ;)
