change timing on DDR2

Need help with noob oops.

New build utilizing Intel mobo DG965WH. Placed Corsair 2x1G CM2X1024-6400C4 RAM 800 MHz, 4-4-4-12, 2.1v. Built without any problems. Booted up fine. Building second identical unit, noted warning to only use 5-5-5 or 6-6-6 timing and 1.8v. Viewed other entries in this forum and decided that it would be ok and in fact better to try to change to 2.1v and change timing. I went to BIOS and changed the timing. It appeared as though the voltage was already running at 2.1. Now it won't boot up. What to do now?

  1. pull your CMOS battery. Give it a minute to reset to the default settings. Put the battery back in. That should atleast get you back up and running. Try increasing the speed of your RAM instead of the timings, i know its not the same thing but it will speed your RAM up.
