Hey everyone, I just got my DS3. It's awesome! I was looking through the bios, and I cannot find the memory timings. Ive seen the MIT, which allows to adjust the memory multiplier, but I cannot find the option to adjust the memory timings. Am I missing something? Thanks.

Here's the rest of my system, everything is at stock speeds except for the memory. (It's not new)

CPU- Pentium D 945 (stock cooling, Waiting for new backplate for TT Big Typhoon to arrive)
Mobo- Gigabyte DS3
Mem- Corsair DDR2-675 (4-4-4-12) running at DDR-800
GPU- Sapphire X1950pro
HDD- 2 80GB Seagate 7200.9 in RAID 0
PSU- Smartpower 2.0 450W (Came with case)
Case- Sonata II

If you need any more info please tell me. Here is a link to the memory I got.

Hit [CRTL+F1] to unlock the hidden settings. They'll be in the M.I.T. section.

Ah, thanks alot!! It was 5-5-5-15, so I set it at 4-4-4-12, and got 400 more points in PC Mark 05! 8O

Besides the memory timings did the Ctrl + F1 unlock anything else I should know about?

That unlocks all the settings, so now you can change whatever you like.

And for the record, the mobos are supposed to default to 5-5-5-15, to ensure RAM compatibility. Then you just change it manually to whatever the RAM is rated for (ie-4-4-4-12, etc). Alot of people post " WTF? My RAM I bought is 4-x-x-x and BIOS shows 5-5-5-15?!?!?!?!?!"

It's supposed to do that ;) 

Now, pay it forward :D
